    'Uncharted 3' Video Game Director Says David O. Russell & Mark Wahlberg's Details On The Film Untrue

    Well, this is a weird one. In the run up to the release of "The Fighter," director David O. Russell and star Mark Wahlberg openly and gladly talked about what appeared to be their forthcoming collaboration on the big screen version of the popular video game "Uncharted." But now, according to "Unchar...

    Exclusive: David O. Russell Talks The Humor, Pathos & Women Of 'The Fighter'

    Long a personal pet project for Mark Wahlberg, "The Fighter" finally kicked into gear once David O. Russell was brought into the director's chair (replacing Darren Aronofsky who exited and went on to make "The Wrestler"). The film was a rugged indie effort, but one that attracted top tier talent inc...

    David O. Russell Says The Making Of 'Nailed' Like A "Stillbirth," Unlikely He'll Return To Finish It

    We had the opportunity to chat with David O. Russell about "The Fighter" recently (more from that conversation soon), but during our discussion with the director, we had to ask what had he been up to since "I Heart Huckabees" hit theaters in 2004.

    Will Anne Hathaway Play 'Barbarella' And Work With David O. Russell? Maybe...

    David O. Russell Confirms Hathaway's Early Talks In 'Silver Linings,' But Nothing Is Set In Stone YetAnne Hathaway has had a pretty good year, all in all. Considering that her last two films before then were the virtually unseen thriller "Passengers" and the rightfully reviled "Bride Wars," memories of her Oscar-nominated turn in "Rachel Getting Married" and her lead in the comedy megahit "The Devil Wears Prada" were beginning to fade. But she's started off the year by being more or less the best thing in the otherwise awful (but, importantly, commercially successful) "Valentine's Day," appeared in the billion-dollar "Alice in Wonderland," an...

    Anne Hathaway & Possibly Bradley Cooper Joining David O. Russell's 'The Silver Linings Playbook'

    After the debacle that was the "I Heart Huckabees" video leak, and the financially compromised "Nailed" -- which he eventually took his name off of -- director David O. Russell is bouncing off the ropes hard and having quite the comeback in 2010 with the winning boxing tale, "The Fighter" starring M...

    Review: 'The Fighter' Is A Scrappy Little Knockout

    Picture Is Also A Surprisingly Funny, Touching Story About The Foibles Of Family; Bale Seems Oscar-Nom BoundThere are onscreen dramas that claim to be about family, but they never really involve the protagonist having to make difficult decisions. Often the family is too saintly, or too important, to ignore. Other times, the best route for the protagonist to follow is to form a surrogate family, as blood relatives appear untrustworthy or devious. Rarely does a film come along that respects its audience enough to present the clear conflicts and difficulties of being around the ones who love you. Whether it be their all-encompassing love, their ...

    Watch: Mark Wahlberg Gets Into Fighting Shape In New Trailer For 'The Fighter'

    While most early reviews have pegged David O. Russell's "The Fighter" as a mainstream crowd pleasing boxing fix, that hasn't stopped the marketing team behind the film to deliver some very clever teasers and trailers for the film. Back in October, an arty clip was debuted for audiences of "Mad Men" ...

    David O. Russell Says 'Uncharted' Script Halfway Done, Reveals Small Details About The Story

    We have to admit, we initially weren't too thrilled with the news that David O. Russell was signing on to direct an adaptation of the video game "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune." We didn't really see how his sensibilities would flourish in a big budget tentpole, particularly one that would likely be con...

    Mark Wahlberg Will Star In David O. Russell's Video Game Adaptation 'Uncharted'

    Actor Confirms That Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci Are In Talks, Will Play His Father & Uncle If you'd told us at the beginning of the year that 2010 would see David O. Russell sign on to an adaptation of the Playstation videogame "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune," we'd have nodded politely, and then dismissed everything you had to say after that. But rumors emerged in the summer that Russell, fresh off his comeback film "The Fighter," was circling the project, and he finally signed on last month. Not long after, another crazy rumor surfaced -- that Russell had moved the globetrotting adventure, at least in part, to the world of New York antiques, ...
