Johansson And Mendes Possible For Uncharted Movie?
You can't have an action movie without a prominent female role. And Uncharted has had two thus far.
Many have speculated on who director David O. Russell might get to play either Elena or Chloe, and the first bit of evidence is interesting: it seems two hot actresses might be in line for a role in the film: Scarlett Johannson and Eva Mendes. During the 83rd Academy Awards this past weekend, Russell told MTV that he's "excited to make Uncharted a really dope crime family in the world of antiquities and art."
After being vague about De Niro and Pesci (also rumored to be involved with the project), leading man Mark Wahlberg said Russell had both Johansson and Mendes in mind for the female lead. Wahlberg has worked with Mendes in both "We Own the Night" and "The Other Guys." As for Johansson, she might make for a good Elena although admittedly, the curvaceous blond's sizzling sex appeal may sort of dim the sarcastic cuteness of the Elena we all know.
As for Mendes, we have no idea. Chloe...? Well, not quite. But maybe Russell just doesn't care about either of the female leads in the games, and he'll get his own.
