David O. Russell may have joined Darren Aronofsky and Michel Gondry on the "fuck it, let's just make some summer blockbuster money" train when he signed on to direct an adaptation of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but that doesn't mean he's not going to try to keep his video game movie classy. According to Showbiz411, the Fighter director is looking at getting Mark Wahlberg (who he's worked with on several prior films) and as well as the classic team-up of Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci to co-star in the Indiana Jones-y film, which is said to "have something to do with antiquities dealers in New York." If Russell is successful in getting De Niro and Pesci together again, their joint résumé will read GoodFellas, Casino, Once Upon a Time in America, A Bronx Tale, Raging Bull, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, based on the hit Playstation 3 adventure of the same name, so I hope everyone's fine with that.
