Mark Wahlberg has confirmed that he’ll be assuming the leading role in the upcoming Uncharted movie, the adaption of the popular adventure title. He also confirmed that director David O. Russell fitted the script to feature both Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci.
“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,” he added. However, neither characters appeared in the original, or in the sequel.
“David is one of the best writer/directors I’ve ever worked with. The idea that he has is just insane. So hopefully we’ll be making that movie this summer,” he continued.
