In the world of video game heroines, Uncharted‘s Elena Fisher is a highly respected role. And the film version of the video games series seems to be aiming for that same kind of treatment of the character in its casting process. David O. Russell, the film’s director, name-dropped a couple of pretty respected actresses he’s hoping will fill Fisher’s virtual boots.
“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,” said Russell to Empire Online. “I love the women characters and the more robust they are, the more robust the movie.”
“I love Amy [Adams],” he 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.”
Think Amy Adams or Scarlett Johansson would make a good Elena? Any better casting options, or are you already speculating on actresses for Chloe Fraiser? Pitch your people below!

And both of them would be horrible as Elena Fisher… why is this casting so bad for this movie?
Because this is a Hollywood film and not a fan made film. A fan made film would find the right people to play the correct roles; like Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake, and not Mark Wahlberg. Well if they did want to cast Chloe then Claudia Black is pretty much the only choice as she is the voice actress for Chloe and can do that role pretty good (just look at her career and she is perfect).
I swear, Hollywood needs to stop making movies based off of video games, and especially anime and manga (oh god those are horrible).
Kristen Bell seems like she’d make a good Elena. Amy Adams would definitely do a good job.
