O. Russell would ‘love’ Amy Adams or Scarlett Johansson as Elena in Uncharted film

Concrete details surrounding David O. Russell’s Uncharted film remain few and far between, but the director behind the adored The Fighter has offered a bit more.

In an interview with Empire, O. Russell spoke about casting Elena, Drake’s love interest.

“Ah, Elena. I’ve cultivated her quite a bit and I think I’ve added a lot of dimension to her so that’s all I’m going to say. I love the woman characters and the more robust they are, the more robust the movie,” he said.

He also offered a tease as to who he sees as playing the character on the silver screen.

“Oh I would love that too, I love Amy [Adams]. I also love Scarlett Johansson; there’s a lot of great actors I think might suit,” he said.  “Hopefully, we’ll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role…”
