Uncharted movie to include "family dynamic," "heads of museums" being brought to "justice"


Wait, what? Sorry, what?

"This idea really turns me on that there's a family that's a force to be reckoned with in the world of international art and antiquities ... [a family] that deals with heads of state and heads of museums and metes out justice," director David O. Russell told the LA Times.

He also called the film a "locomotive," explaining that the script's already about half-way done and things are really starting to take shape. You know, in the same way that a toddler's sculpture of a "boat" that's actually a blob of Play Doh bifurcated by a popsicle stick "takes shape."

"We'll have the family dynamic, which we've done in a couple of movies now," he added. "And then you take that and put it on the bigger, more muscular stage of an international action picture, but also put all the character stuff in it. That's a really cool idea to me."

And just when you'd gotten over your outrage about Mark Wahlberg hogging Nathan Fillion's spotlight, too. But hey, Russell's a big busy director man. Clearly he doesn't have time for silly frivolities like actually playing the games his movie's allegedly based on.
