    Brad Pitt Might Go On Colombian Hostage 'Mission' With David O. Russell

    As you already know by now, not a week can go by without David O. Russell attaching his name to one project or another, but we generally hear not much beyond that so color us surprised that there is a bit of news on "The Mission," a film he put his name to a couple of weeks ago.

    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 ...
