Mark Wahlberg has confirmed that he will be playing the role of Nathan Drake in the upcoming Sony Pictures Entertainment’s movie adaptation of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. The news is sure to disappoint fans of Firefly star Nathan Fillion, who recently expressed interest in playing the role of Drake.
In an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Walhberg confirmed that director David O. Russell has started work on the script. "David is one of the best writer/directors I've ever worked with," said Wahlberg. "The idea that he has is just insane. So hopefully we'll be making that movie this summer."

Walhberg also confirmed rumors that O. Russell wants to cast Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro. “That’s who he wants to write the parts for. I talked to Pesci about it and I know David’s people have talked to [Robert De Niro],” said Wahlberg.
When asked how Pesci and De Niro would fit into the storyline, Wahlberg said, “I’m obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It’s not going to be the watered-down version, that’s for sure.”
