Though the Uncharted film has been in development for several years now, a leading man has still not been cast. One name, however, has flirted with the project almost ever since its inception, and it seems that he is still the frontrunner.
According to leaked Sony emails, the studio is still keen on having Mark Wahlberg star in the Seth Gordon-directed film, which will be scripted by Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty). Apparently, the actor met with Gordon back in the summer and things went well. Nothing has been made official just yet, of course, but Wahlberg did say he’d be available to shoot in 2015 and seemed eager to do it.
Now, this was several months ago, and who knows what has changed between then and now. Obviously Wahlberg is a busy guy, and since the summer, several more names have been thrown around for the role. Still, »

A movie based on the popular video game series Uncharted has been in development for some time at Sony. Originally David O. Russell was in line to direct with Mark Wahlberg starring as the protagonist Nathan ‘Nate’ Drake. When Russell left the project it appeared that Wahlberg was no longer in the frame, however it has now been revealed that Wahlberg is still a top contender for the part.
According to details stemming from the Sony hack, it has been discovered that Mark Wahlberg and the film’s director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) met in June this year to discuss the project and it supposedly went well. It is said that Sony needs commitment from Wahlberg soon, as filming is set to begin early in 2015. Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) was approached to play the role earlier this year, but declined.

While Uncharted is one of those movies we've heard about for years, it seems like Sony is finally getting serious about bringing this video game to the big screen. The studio has set a June 2016 release date, and the adaptation even has a writer and director attached. But it doesn't yet have a leading man. That may be changing soon, as it is rumored that Mark Wahlberg is still being eyed as Nathan 'Nate' Drake.
It's been four years since Mark Wahlberg first confirmed that he was playing Nathan Drake in an Uncharted movie. At the time, he was set to reunite with his I Heart Huckabees and The Fighter director David O. Russell, who was both writing and set to helm this action adventure movie, said to be in the same vein as Indiana Jones. But David O. Russell dropped out in 2011. Mark Wahlberg left the project soon there after. »
Uncharted has been in development for a number of years now, and the fact that the critically acclaimed video game series still hasn't received the big screen treatment is baffling to say the least. Sony have certainly tried, and a number of writers and directors have been attached at one point or another. The latest is Horrible Bosses helmer Seth Gordon, while franchise fan and Zero Dark Thirty scribe Mark Boal is writing the latest draft of the script. Who will star in the movie? We've seen an email between Sony execs including Amy Pascal and Jonathin Kadin which reveal that back in June a meeting took place between Gordon and Mark Wahlberg (who was attached to the project a number of years ago) which apparently went very well. They talked in great detail about the version of the script which existed at that time, and the actor was agreeable »

Et first met New Kids on the Block in 1989, as they were charming fans at a school in New York. Now, Et is looking back at the boy band's vintage interviews before the debut of their reality show on the soon-to-be-renamed Tvgn.

"I'm a young kid and I'm just having a good time," Joey McIntyre told Et in 1990.
"Remember that one show where our whole stage was full of girls?" Jordan asked Donnie in 1990. "They dragged them all out and when the girls seen where they were putting the people that fainted on the back of the stage, everyone started fainting then. That was funny."
The boys were tight, but like many bands, they had their share of disagreements. Tension with the »
Mark Wahlberg and his best friend, a living teddy bear, are ready to hit the high seas in the first photo from the upcoming sequel Ted 2. The image was released as part of Entertainment Weekly's 2015 preview, though it only hints at some of the highjinks these two are bound to get themselves into. The duo return to the big screen this summer.
Seth MacFarlane returns to write and direct Ted 2. He also returns to voice the popular bear. While not much is known about the plot, it is known that Amanda Seyfried will be taking over the female lead from Mila Kunis. Though, Mila Kunis will still be present in some capacity as John Bennett's former lover.
Ted 2 may not have the name-brand recognition of an Avengers or the budget of a Star Wars, but it is the only sequel of 2015 that has a foul-mouthed teddy bear as one of its leads. The first image from the new comedy shows said teddy bear (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) with his best friend […]

Recently, MTV News caught up to Transformers 4 lead star, Mark Wahlberg (left), while he was promoting his new flick, "The Gambler," and he gave some very brief details for the upcoming "Transformers 5" flick, just confirming that he is signed on, and that filming will most likely start filming sooner rather than later. (video below). In the new clip, Mark told them: "Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more... you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon." Transformers 4 ended up grossing over a whopping $1.08 billion dollars at the box office, so you best believe Paramount Pictures is definitely ready to crank out another one as soon as humanly possible. »

Plot details are still under wraps, but reports earlier leaked that part of the story will have Ted in a court fight for the right to have a child with a human girlfriend. Don’t really know on how that will work out. So good luck, Ted.
“Ted 2” will be released next summer on June 26.

In 1992, who would have thought that Mark Wahlberg (a.k.a. Marky Mark) would leave behind a successful music career to become an Oscar-nominated actor?
News: Mark Wahlberg on the Gamble to Clear His Name
Not many. But one thing was sure even back then -- he would never have a hard time with the ladies.
"He is a sex symbol. Look at him!" a young Donnie Wahlberg told Et in a 1992 interview.
In the video, Mark was equally as complimentary of his brother and former New Kids on the Block bandmate.
"He's always had all the girls outside the house waiting on him," Mark said. "But I get a few now, so I'm cool with that."

The plush foul-mouthed bear who cleaned up at the 2012 box office returns to the big screen for more tomfoolery in Ted 2. Set for release next year, the sequel will attempt to replicate the success of the original by enlisting Mark Wahlberg once more to assist the pint-sized plushie. After it took a whopping $550 million worldwide, Ted went on to become one of the most successful R-rated movies of all time. The question is, however, will the second adventure for the thunder buddies do the same?
Writer, director and star Seth MacFarlane is doing all he can to ensure that Ted 2 is bigger and flashier than the first. Upping the jokes, scoring bigger locations and bagging a supreme cast suggest we’re in for an even-more bonkers ride next summer. One part of which appears to take place in the water.

[The Film Stage] Transformers 5: Mark Wahlberg, star of this summer's blockbuster smash Transformers: Age of Extinction, says he has "committed" to doing a "couple" more movies in the series, and thinks the next one will be going into production "soon." But what about director Michael Bay, who has hinted that he wants do other types of movies? Wahlberg would only say that he can't speak for Bay. [MTV] David Fincher: Director David Fincher is now...

If you want to get the trades talking about something other than the Oscars for a little while, consider creating a giant controversy and terrorist conspiracy threat in which a Christmas Day comedy release is completely canceled and gets all of Hollywood calling the act a disgraceful injustice that effectively kills American Expression and Free Speech.
The Interview story has been an unprecedented mess in which Sony and subsequent theater chains acted quickly and perhaps rashly, at the expense of a now highly anticipated film and all the people who worked on it, and whether or not the loss of free speech is an overstatement or not, the presumption is that this sets a scary precedent for what can and can happen to a film.

Warner Bros. has revealed the first trailer for Will Ferrell’s upcoming comedy, Get Hard. From director Etan Cohen, the Gary Sanchez-produced pic looks primed to kickstart Ferrell’s slapstick antics, which have been sorely missing from the cinema calendar as of late.
In the movie, the former SNL star appears as hedge fund manager, James. When the millionaire is indicted for fraud, his impending stint in prison fills him with dread. Luckily, Kevin Hart’s Darnell is on hand to prepare James for all of the experiences that await him behind the bars of San Quentin.
With the first preview now available (via Yahoo! Movies), we’re able to get a sense of what’s in store for the timid chappie while he gets himself ready for prison life. As stories go, the premise overall isn’t that enticing. It simply sounds like a re-hash of countless other »

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from upcoming 2015 releases including the likes of some artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens as seen directly above as well as pics from Ted 2, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Furious 7, Jurassic World and many more. Full disclosure, just from looking at these pictures I wouldn't have been able to figure out what some of them are from, but lucky for you this isn't a "Guess the Movies" installment. Here's a look at several of the new pictures along with a little commentary of my own over the course of the next couple pages. I would have guessed this first picture below was for a Baby Mama sequel I didn't yet know existed -- in which case I'd have yelled, "Whoop whoop!" -- but alas, it's for a film called Sisters (previously known as The Nest »
