Our Prayers Have Been Answered: David O. Russell No Longer Writing/Directing The Uncharted Film

The Uncharted franchise is one that’s quickly approaching the iconic stage after the success of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and the impending release of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. But there was one possible potential stumble for the Uncharted series with the production of the live-action adaptation in the works at Sony Pictures. Uncharted has all the makings to be a potential mega-hit film franchise, but after acclaimed director/writer David O. Russell (Three Kings, The Fighter) came aboard, things took a turn for the worst.

Devil May Cry Film Lives On, Writer Gets Chosen

Folks who have been following the video game industry for a good amount of time will know that this isn’t necessarily 100% surprising news, but Capcom has once again partnered with a film studio to bring Devil May Cry to the big screen.  Back in the day Capcom sold the DMC film rights but nothing came of the project despite the popularity of the PS2 games and the general desire of film studios to pump out so-so films in the hopes of making a quick buck (see the film adaptation of Doom as an example of this).  Now, Capcom has gotten a partner that could very well see a DMC movie be

David O. Russell Once Again Talks About His Live-Action Uncharted Movie

At this point, I think the hate and criticisms film director David O. Russell receives from the gaming community is almost beyond justified. Whenever he's interviewed and the forthcoming live-action Uncharted film is mentioned we usually hear stuff that is beyond silly and highly frustrating.  The Uncharted film may not have entered production yet nor does it have a cast finalized, but hearing David O.

Battle: L.A. - The Game Is Apparently Becoming A Reality

Since gamers are so fond of games based on movies, I’m being sarcastic of course, there appears to be a game adaptation of the forthcoming sci-fi action flick Battle: L.A. in the works.  The news of Battle: L.A.

Get The Pitchforks Ready, David O. Russell Talks About The Uncharted Film Once Again

I know it’s probably all unintentional and that the man means no harm, but it almost appears that whenever David O. Russell publicly speaks about his forthcoming live-action adaptation of Uncharted that he immediately puts his foot in his mouth.  As has been chronicled thoroughly on Shogun Gamer, Sony Pictures (WOW what a surprise!) attained the film rights to Uncharted and subsequently pegged director/writer David O.

Mark Wahlberg comments on the recent Uncharted movie rumors

When it comes to the live-action Uncharted movie, things just aren’t looking good.  After getting a glimmer of hope that the project won’t be utter crap when it was claimed that the earlier plot and casting news was incorrect, it actually turns out that those comments were compl

Uncharted: The Movie still seems to be happening

As it was announced over a year ago, a film adaptation of Sony’s hit PS3 game Uncharted is still going forward. In fact, despite previous rumors, the film is moving along faster than we thought and could ultimately hit theaters within the next two years.  Hmm, do I see a potential Uncharted 3/Uncharted PSP2 release to tie-in with the movie?  If past Hollywood synergy is anything to go by I wouldn’t be surprised if it does happen.

Capcom announces another Resident Evil movie

If the live-action Resident Evil movies aren’t your cup of tea, then perhaps today’s announcement will be considered good news. Capcom has announced Resident Evil: Damnation, the follow-up to the 2008 CG film Resident Evil: Degeneration.

Resident Evil: Afterlife poster does its best to mimic 3D

Love it or hate it there’s a new Resident Evil film coming out in September. Once again featuring Alice (Milla Jovovich) as she takes on the Umbrella Corporation, Resident Evil: Afterlife (catchy name) is most likely the final installment of the RE film franchise featuring Alice and friends. So what better way to end things than jumping aboard the 3D bandwagon?

The Metal Gear Solid movie is officially dead for the time being. YAY!!!

The planets must’ve aligned as the live-action film based on Metal Gear Solid looks to be not happening anytime soon.  Last we heard in the saga of the MGS movie director Paul W.S. Anderson (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil) expressed some interest in tackling Solid Snake’s big screen debut. Perhaps that’s why Konami seemingly saved the day for gamers by putting the kibosh on the project.
