    David O. Russell Vacates The Director's Chair For 'Uncharted'

    What is going on today? Is it the upcoming Memorial Day weekend that has director's wanting to clear out the projects they no longer want to do?

    Mark Wahlberg Re-Uniting With David O. Russell For 'The Silver Linings Playbook'

    Film Will Seemingly Shoot Ahead Of Video Game Adaptation 'Uncharted' The first time David O. Russell teamed up with Mark Wahlberg, it was on the outstanding "Three Kings," but their follow-up was something of a mixed bag: "I Heart Huckabees" divided critics, and was mostly ignored by audiences. But Wahlberg was brilliant in it, and their third collaboration, "The Fighter," was far more successful, picking up Oscar nominations and a hefty box office take, and the two seemed to be a good team. Unfortunately, their next mooted film was the video game adaptation "Uncharted" which, while we have faith that Russell would turn out something more int...

    David O. Russell Says He's Ready To Write The Sequel To 'The Fighter'

    With "The Fighter" now on DVD/Blu-ray it's fairly safe to say most people have seen it at least once by now. (The film actually plays better the second time.) The true story of underdog boxer Micky Ward (Mark Wahlberg) and his somewhat dysfunctional family was nominated for a ton of awards and ended up just shy of $100 million at the U.S. box office. But the real underdog story is the resurrection of director David O. Russell's career. After an unintentional six-year hiatus (where he eventually abandoned his troubled political satire "Nailed"), the writer/director reunited with his pal Wahlberg to take on "The Fighter" after filmmaker Darren ...

    SXSW: Paul Reubens Says He's Heard Rumors That David O. Russell's Camp Is Trying To Bury 'Nailed'

    Says The Film Is "Great" And Features Strong Performances From Jake Gyllenhaal & Jessica Biel; Reveals That He Was Screamed At The First Day On SetThe sordid saga of David O. Russell's aborted "Nailed" continues. The short version of the story goes like this: production on the film was stopped and started numerous times as shady financier David Bergstein kept running out of money and eventually the film shut down completely with only one scene left to be filmed. The movie has since changed hands to new owners who are eager to finish the film, but David O. Russell has washed his hands of the movie, and moved on to shoot the critically acclaime...

    Reader Report: A Very Raw, Rough & Early Cut Of Unfinished David O. Russell's 'Nailed'

    While he's squarely back on top and the memory of controversial past dust ups are long in his rear-view mirror, filmmaker David O. Russell probably hoped 2008, not 2010/11, would prove to be his comeback year.

    Will Smith Attached To 'Joe' A Modern-Day Version Of Biblical Tale Of Job From 'The Fighter' Writers

    David O. Russell Courted To DirectFor a man not exactly lacking in self-confidence, it's odd the way that Will Smith seemed to react to the critical and commercial failure of his last film, 2008's "Seven Pounds." Smith, who, when that film was released was probably the biggest star in the world, ha...
