Last week, we told you that the video game director of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception was denying that Mark Wahlberg was definitely going to star in the film adaptation of the popular adventure game. Not so fast, says Wahlberg:

David O’Russell is writing right now and hopes to direct. It’s myself, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro.

While that’s not a clear declaration that Wahlberg is officially signed on, it does sound like if that project happens, he’s definitely doing it. O’Russell’s currently doing the pre-Oscar press rounds for his latest film, The Fighter, but it sounds like he’s very much working on the Uncharted adaptation as well. There’s currently no official word on what specific roles De Niro and Pesci would be taking on, though Wahlberg previously stated his intention to have the two play his father and uncle respectively. Moviehole reports that they’re hoping to start shooting “in the summer time.” Though with the amount of times this project has flipped back and forth from being “on” and “off”, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
