David O. Russell, being a relatively loose-lipped director, has been talking a lot about his upcoming adaptation of Uncharted, the popular video game series. The games feature a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, Nathan Drake, whose life consists of searching for treasure and exploring the wilderness.

Apparently, he also enlists the help of a sexy journalist named Elena. This character has yet to be cast, but O. Russell let slip a few possible names. Hit the jump to find out!

In a discussion with Empire, he was asked how he felt about Amy Adams in the role of Elena; naturally, as he just finished working with her on THE FIGHTER, he agreed. But he also said, “I also love Scarlett Johansson; there’s a lot of great actors I think might suit. Hopefully, we’ll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role…” Curious.

Personally, I’d be pretty happy with either of those actresses. Amy Adams is, in my opinion, a more talented performer than Johansson. But then again, I have no attachment to this project. I’ve never played the games nor do I know anything about these characters. However, what I know about the source material leads me to believe it could be a fun adventure romp.
