More information about the DS game

We haven't heard much lately about the film adaptation of the PlayStation 3 adventure game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, but yesterday, IGN published a short interview with David O. Russell, who will direct his own adapted screenplay.

"I have total respect for the game," Russell says. "My kid loves playing it, I love playing it. I just want to create a world that takes it to another level, that's another amazing world that's more cinematic."

Mark Wahlberg's name has been floated for the key role of Nathan Drake, with Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci rumored for unspecified parts. The film has a target release date of 2013.

About the game: A 400-year-old clue in the coffin of Sir Francis Drake sets a modern-day fortune hunter on an exploration for the fabled treasure of El Dorado, leading to the discovery of a forgotten island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

The search turns deadly when Nathan Drake becomes stranded on the island and hunted by mercenaries. Outnumbered and outgunned, Drake and his companions must fight to survive as they begin to unravel the terrible secrets hidden on the Island.

Watch the game trailer below.
