Mark Wahlberg might not enter “Uncharted” after all?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Remember all of those reports that Mark Wahlberg would reteam with “The Fighter” director David O. Russell for a big-budget, big-screen adaptation of “Uncharted,” the thrilling video game adventure from Naughty Dog? Well, it turns out that’s nothing but “Hollywood scuttlebutt,” according to an interview on Joystiq.com.

That bit of casting news was dropped in the middle of “Uncharted 3” game director Justin Richmond’s explanation that quotes Russell made to the L.A. Times regarding a “family dynamic” powering the “Uncharted” film were false.

“First of all, all that stuff was denied by David O. Russell,” Richmond said. “He actually called us up and was like, ‘I don’t know what these guys are talking about.'”

Hmmmm. A director misquoted by a journalist in this day and age? Say it ain’t so!

The interview goes on to reveal interesting details about the anticipated “Uncharted” video game sequel, and is a must read for die-hard gamers.

But the fact that Wahlberg isn’t a lock to play dashing, sarcastic hero Nathan Drake opens the door, once again, to fan favorites like Nathan Fillion or Joe Flanigan.
