David O. Russell Drops Out of ‘Uncharted’ Film

One of the best video game series’ was about to get the Hollywood treatment, leaving many to believe it was going to crash and burn on arrival.  Well the news here may cheer a lot of people up, including myself; director David O. Russell has dropped out of Sony’s screen adaptation of the video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. [mtv]

Citing inside sources,  “the split was amicable and due to creative differences on the project.  Studio will begin its search for a new writer today.”  From this, we can imagine that Mark Wahlberg is probably out as Nathan Drake, still to late for Nathan Fillion?
