David O. Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter), has been selected to write and direct Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune for Columbia Pictures. The picture will be produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, Ari Arad, and Alex Gartner. Matt Tolmach, co-president of Columbia Pictures had the following to say about the announcement.
David is a tremendous choice to take on this film. He’s equally adept at combining all the classic elements involved in this property: great character development, strong comedy, and amazing action sequences. He has a brilliant vision for this material and we know he will bring his original, unique voice to this adaptation.
Major props go out to Comingsoon for the info. Uncharted remains my favorite series of this generation. It has just enough Indiana Jones flavor mixed with a great cover system, and non-stop action that I simply can’t get enough of the series. When Uncharted 3 get announced, I will be the happiest man alive. For now, what do you think of Uncharted hitting the big screen?
