Hell yes!! I'd go see the movie just because she's in it haha. Seriously though, she'd be a good choice as long as they keep Marky Mark out.
jony_dols  +   1762d ago
He also said Amy Adams is a possibility.
Either one is a great choice!

O'Russell has the ability to get the very best out of the limited acting skills of Marky Mark.

He is very good in the Fighter and Three Kings, not to mention the excellent turn he gave in The Departed.

He isn't my No.1 choice, but give the guy a chance.

I think Angelina Jolie would make the perfect Chloe though. The voice is very much like hers, and she is very sexy as well. Not sure about Amy Adams as Elena though, or Scarlett Johansson. I think Emily Rose which is the voice actress anyways would play the best Elena.
El_Colombiano  +   1762d ago
Emily Rose is already Elena. No reason to look anywhere else. And I pray that Jolie receives a restraining order from this movie. She is so over rated and most definitely not sexy. Not for years now.

Scarlett Johanssons hot. But shes a little chubby for the role. Amy Adams would be better.
icewater  +   1762d ago
please smack yourself for saying some stupid shit like that, how is she chubby, and Amy Adams would not be better.
Spitfire_Riggz  +   1762d ago
Great if she reads that shes gonna run to the toilet and throw up like all the woman actor/models. Way to go man

kneon  +   1762d ago
Chubby? I see, you prefer women with the figure of a 10 year old boy.
Baka-akaB  +   1762d ago
chubby lol ? i guess this is how you push a teenage girl toward anorexia
Inzo  +   1762d ago
she is what a real woman is supposed to look like, curvaceous!
FishCake9T4  +   1762d ago
Thats not called chubby.
Its called being a whole lot of woman. Go back to your stick figures.

While we're at it why not get the rest of The Fighter cast in to play every other Uncharted character? I can see Bale playing Victor Sullivan.
Baka-akaB  +   1762d ago
as much as i like Bale , please no ...

Someone born for the role is Bruce Campbell . Hell he is basically a Sully clone in Burn notice .

i wish if my gf is half good looking as Scarlett

Get rid of Mark Wahlberg, and replace him with this guy. Or with Nathan.

Btw who the fuck is disagreeing?

chris pine would actually be a better choice than marky mark. he was good in star trek

Just because they are white and have similar hair styles it doesn't mean they look or can even act like Drake.

This is Nathan Drake:

Scarlett is not chubby at all, just curvy. I guess if they don't resemble a 12 year old boy people arent happy anymore.

They can put even Justin Bieber in the movie. It will be lame as any other game based movie.

Isn't the fact that Elena *isn't* a total bombshell a crucial part of her character?
MasterChief3624  +   1762d ago
Indeed. That's something I love about what they did with her, too. In this gaming landscape of whored-out sex symbol female characters, Elena is one of the few that has been made with integrity and class. Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII is another one that comes to mind, and to a point Lara Croft from Tomb Raider: Legend (way less whored-out than the previous entries).

Buuut... that's the videogame. This is a movie, and if patterns hold up, the less they stick to the game, the better the film adaptation will be.

Amy Adams would certainly hold that classy look of Elena though. That would be great. :D

As for the article: Rubbish assumption. They merely mention a couple actresses in passing, not as contenders for the role. They should change the title of this posting.
femshep  +   1762d ago
i started losing interest when they said the background story was different then they announced the actor and then the movie died
Baka-akaB  +   1762d ago
I'm not surprised Emily Rose wasnt picked .. still i was a tiny bit hopeful .

She is getting famous nowthanks to roles like in Haven , so i figured she had more chances than a Nolan (let's be honest , he's a complete nobody outside of game roles)
Lamarthedancer  +   1762d ago
I always liked to think, if David was directing and they stuck to the source material, that if Emily Rose signed on they would get Nolan aswell since they work well together.

...I highly doubt it but you never know
outwar6010  +   1762d ago
this is whole business of movie adaptations always goes haywire its just sad that they usually tar the reputation of good franchise
Lamarthedancer  +   1762d ago
I love how he's trying to make Uncharted into his own thing, isn't he aware that nobody really wants he to be the director of this and nobody has much hope in it.

It wasn't really Marky Mark that put me off the most it's when he said "Uncharted has nothing more then a title and character names"

....and he says it's cinematic, yeah it is well done David but it still dosen't convince me that you've actually played the game, it seems that this film is just his idea and he's usuing uncharted to get it the greenlight. The thing is the film it's self is still in development so if were all lucky this film might not even happen.

Nolan North and Emily Rose are the only Nathan and Elena for me

Scarlett Johansson...chubby? WTF is the world coming too?

I prefer my women to actually, you know, look like women.

I'd take this:

Over this:

Any fricking day of the week.

I mean, eat a god damn sandwich, Kate!!

As if the women of the world today didn't ALREADY have horrible body image issues, now we have people calling curvaceous women like Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Love Hewitt "chubby," and "fat." My wife drives me up a wall because she thinks she's somehow "fat," now that she has D-cup boobs. It's insane! I'M certainly not complaining. lol

Damn, I miss the days of women like this (warning: there's some ass going on in this pic, so it may be NSFW):

I think scarlet is too sexy for the role. I think Amy adams fits quite well. She seems to play the eveyday type of girl/woman roles which is what i think of Elena.
Laeto256  +   1762d ago
she could maybe pull it off. for chloe they could just ask Claudia Black lol or someone australian in general. i still think nathan fillion is the best bet, get him a trainer and get him to slim/bulk up case closed.
TBONEJF  +   1762d ago
Shes very pretty and sexy. but I still say HOLLYWOOD NEEDS TO LEARN TO MAKE VIDEO games movies right. right actors character. and LET US THE FANS VOTE WHO WANTS TO PLAY THE ROLE. It won't turn out great now I know why you guys don't want Mark to play as Drake.
KillaSeason  +   1762d ago
I never go to the show to see video game/movie adaptions.. but if Scarlett J. plays Elena i will definitely not wait till blu ray release. She IS GORGEOUS.
