Amy Adams for Elena Fisher? We vote yes.

Amy Adams possible pick for the role of journalist/love interest Elena Fisher in big-screen adaptation

(Gamespot) – David O. Russell’s The Fighter has been nominated for seven Oscars, but the Hollywood man isn’t just talking about his boxing film. In an interview with Empire Online, Russell discussed his next project, the big-screen adaptation of Naughty Dog’s action adventure Uncharted. He said he is currently mulling over ideas for the character of journalist/love interest Elena Fisher, who first appeared in the original Uncharted title.

“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,” he said. “I love the women characters and the more robust they are, the more robust the movie.”

Russell was also posed a question concerning his interest in having Amy Adams (Enchanted, Julie & Julia), the female lead of The Fighter, play Elena in the Uncharted film.

“Oh I would love that too; I love Amy [Adams],” he said. “I also love Scarlett Johansson (The Prestige, The Island); 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.”

Sony wants you to “Move” to the PS3

Sony unveiled its highly anticipated motion controller today in a direct challenge to the Nintendo Wii. Aptly named the “PlayStation Move”, it’s obvious that Sony is trying to lure gamers who may be ready to move from the Wii. The “Move” will be used in conjunction with the PlayStation Eye camera and the wireless controller can reportedly track a players’ body movements in addition to movements of the controller itself.

Scheduled for a Fall release, there has been no mention of exact pricing by Sony for the “Move” but it is rumored that the controller will be bundled with the Playstation Eye and one game for under $100. Consistently outsold by the Wii, Sony obviously hopes the “Move” will be a step in the right direction in gaining ground on Nintendo.

“Move”-compatible games are already in the works from major publishers like Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, and Square Enix.

With nothing new to report from Microsoft in regards to its own “Project Natal”, which reportedly combines a camera, depth sensor, microphone, and processor, it would seem Sony has one again got a jump on the software giant with the latest technology.

Whether they can maintain their lead once Microsoft and Nintendo respond to the “Move” with their respective technologies remains to be seen.
