Really? This is what we’ve come to? Using the advance awards buzz for The Fighter (Paramount, December 10) as a pole vault, David O. Russell has signed on for his next writing and directing project, in the form of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, “based on the bestselling PlayStation 3 videogame.” That’s the depressing news from The Wrap. Look, I understand everyone’s gotta eat, but I hate to see interesting, idiosyncratic directors dive into virtually indistinguishable videogame franchises. So I ask: is there anyone that thinks they can, with a straight face, make a case regarding Russell’s deep and abiding passion for the source material? Because if so, folks at Columbia Pictures will eventually be needing you to work up some press notes for the movie.
