DeNiro, Pesci Reunion for Movie Made from Video Game


Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci may finally be reuniting.

There’s a plan afoot for them to co-star in “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.”

David O. Russell–who’s just about to release “The Fighter”–has been developing a film from the popular video game.

Russell also may have Mark Wahlberg on board for the Columbia Pictures film.

Right now, the script is being composed from scratch. Word is the actual video game didn’t have much there aside from a concept and a name.

Russell didn’t fork over any plot points at last night’s premiere of “The Fighter.” But sources say the story will have something to do with antiquities dealers in New York.

DeNiro and Pesci famously teamed up in five movies: GoodFellas, Casino, Once Upon a Time in America, A Bronx Tale, and Raging Bull.
