Scarlett Johannson as Elena for Uncharted Movie?Posted 9:03 am on Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Empire recently had a chance to catch up with director David O. Russell for the Uncharted film, based on the blockbuster PlayStation 3 game of the same name.
Empire asked if Amy Adams would be good for the role as Elena, Uncharted’s leading lady.
“Oh I would love that too, I love Amy. I also love Scarlett Johansson; there’s a lot of great actors I think might suit. Hopefully, we’ll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role…”
So far, Mark Wahlberg has confirmed that he’s playing Nathan Drake. This is what David said of the update for the Uncharted film:
The game is very cinematic; there’s no question about it. That’s what I’m working on real hard and I’m writing it as we speak and I’m really excited to make it. I’d love Mark to be in it, I’d love Bob De Niro to be in it; I love the idea of growing them into a cinematic family; I think that’s a really cool idea, but… I guess you’ll have to wait until you see the script.
Let’s hope that Robert De Niro will be playing an actual character from the game, like Victor “Sully” Sullivan, and not some relative along with Joe Pesci.
So what do you think of Amy Adams or Scarlett Johansson as Elena? Would De Niro make a good Sully? And will fans of Nathan Fillion still persist that he should be playing Nathan Drake?
