Why couldn't David O. Russell and Sony make it work on 'Uncharted'?

Whenever the subject of the movie “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune” came up with David O. Russell during the last Oscar season, he had one response. He was going. Fast.

"It's a locomotive," the "Fighter" director told 24 Frames in December of his progress on the video game adaptation. "I don't know how to say this except that I feel that I see things much more clearly. I don't turn over an idea as I once would,” he added.

Sure am glad Sony stepped in and put a stop to this crap.

ToastyMcNibbles2551d ago

Yes! I still would like to see Bradley Cooper as Drake. I think he fits perfectly.

(@ Bitby Death)i do agree with what you are saying but we also have to wonder how to would of turned out now that Uncharted movie isnt coming.

we dont know if it would of been good or it would sucked now we wouldnt know. what if there was a chance that it would of been a big hit in theathres and that it would break the (Game Movie sucks) saying.

Because he's a sad excuse of a director. I want to see people who actually bothers to study the source material intensively to direct game/comic(whatever) to movie adaptation.

He's actually an excellent and respected writer/director.

It's rather a case of fit. He's simply not the best man for this sort of project. Doesn't mean he's a crap director.

If your gonna make a movie game don't do exactly what the fans don't want and go out and tell them itsa movie that revolves around family.
WTF that not what Uncharted is about.

Personally, someone like Peter Jackson or Steven Spielberg should direct Uncharted, since theyre pro's at the whole action/adventure genre, and also, must have Nathan Fillion. I dont care who else looks like Drake, or who else sounds like Drake, who else can act like Drake.

Nathan Fillion IS Nathan Drake.

I really hope they get nathan fillion in as drake... Im sorry but mark wahlberg? You've got to be kidding me, hes sucked as max payne and he'll suck as nathan drake... Nathan fillion looks and acts like nathan drake... I hope sony makes this happen...

I know NF has been campaigning for it, but doing Castle pretty much kills that idea, unless they want to work around his schedule and I doubt they'd wait another 12 months to start shooting.

MrBeatdown2551d ago

Good riddance. Get someone who actually gives a crap about the source material.

MrBeatdown2551d ago

Anyone who thinks it's a bad idea to turn Nathan Drake into some international art museum Power Ranger would be fine by me.
