Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune video game to become a movie

Uncharted Drake's Fortune movie

It appears sooner than later that the video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune will be come a movie at theaters very soon. Director David O' Russell has committed to directing the movie and is halfway finished with the script.

Fans are intrigued by the choice of Russell to direct the movie as his style is pretty quirky. The last big film he made was 'Three Kings' back in the late 90s.

While the video game centers on Nate Drake (a descendant of Sir Francis Drake) and his quest to find lost treasure on an island far from civilization, Russell plans on expanding the movie to include Drake's extended family -- and put them in fraught, globetrotting situations with some of the world's most influential people.

"This idea really turns me on that there's a family that's a force to be reckoned with in the world of international art and antiquities ... [a family] that deals with heads of state and heads of museums and metes out justice," he said.

Mark Wahlberg will play Nate Drake. Both Wahlberg and Russell just finished making 'The Fighter' which will be out very soon.
