Mark Wahlberg has confirmed the rumours that he will play Nathan Drake in the David O. Russell-directed Uncharted.
Wahlberg told MTV he hopes to reteam with his The Fighter and Three Kings director next year:
“The idea that he has is just insane,” Wahlberg said about Russell. “So hopefully we’ll be making that movie this summer.”
He added: “That’s who he wants to write the parts for. I talked to Pesci about it and I know David’s people have talked to [Robert De Niro]… I’m obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It’s not going to be the watered-down version, that’s for sure.”
While few details of the project have been released, Showbiz411 report “the story will have something to do with antiquities dealers in New York.”
