Posted on May 26, 2011, Phil Owen We Think David O Russell Is Off the Uncharted Movie For Real This Time
Deadline is reporting that David O Russell is, seriously, no longer writing and directing the Uncharted movie about Drake and his dad. They say Universal is going to dig up somebody to rewrite the script so they can begin anew.
Now, take this with a grain of salt. Russell was on this movie, and then off this movie and then on this movie again, and now he’s back off, so who’s to say this report isn’t erroneous or that Russell and/or Universal will change their minds? It does make sense, though, that thy’d replace him if his new classy picture schedule put this movie on the backburner. Frankly, I just don’t trust any news about the Uncharted movie. I assume it’s all bull, and I’m going to do so until I see a quote from Universal or Russell confirming this. No offense, Deadline. It’s not you; it’s me.
