Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune blir film med Mark Wahlberg
Playstation3 spelet Uncharted skall bli film skriver Empire Magazine. Mark Wahlberg har fått huvudrollen, han tackade nej till The Crow pga denna filmen.
The Uncharted series, for those not familiar, comprises two games so far, in the form of Drake's Fortune and Among Thieves, both of which follow the globe-trotting adventures of Nathan Drake as he searches for lost treasure. The thrust is a bit Indiana Jones, a bit Tomb Raider, and, to be honest, a bit National Treasure, with the added pleasure of extreme violence: the body count on both games can't be far short of four figures.
Lost cities feature heavily (El Dorado the first time, and Shambhala the second), but it sounds as if Russell is following his own path for the film version, which, if he has his way, will feature both Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in supporting roles. "That's who David wants," confirms Wahlberg. "I talked to Pesci about it, and I know David's people have talked to De Niro." De Niro, we'd have thought, would be a good fit for Drake's cohort and mentor Sully, but the plan afoot is apparently that "De Niro will play my father and Pesci is my uncle."
Mark har varit med i film som baserad på tv-spel innan, Max Payne. Förhoppningsvis blir det bättre film denna gången.
Är Mark ett bra val?
