EXACTLY. He has two roles that people can't wait to see and you are surprised he doesnt want to add Uncharted to his resume
w/e you're saying that like this was the point of your previous point
Video game films did very little to hurt Gyllenhaal or Wahlberg's career...
They're only a massive failures if they tank at the box office (DOOM) or Uwe Boll is directing them, otherwise they just fade into a dudes filmography and become an afterthought. The problem isn't the "video game" genre, it's the franchise thirsty way the game's built nowadays.
I can't remember anyone tied up to an franchise as successful as GOTG currently is having their career "ruined" by one bad film. That's my whole argument right now
Look at Chris Pine for example.. His team followed a plan that on paper looks great.. Get tied into a successful franchise (Star Trek), do a Rom-Com (This Means War), a thriller (Unstoppable), successful franchise sequel and hell while you're at it throw in another prestigious franchise (Jack Ryan).. Problem is it failed because he kept striking out and couldnt sustain momentum between his big films.
Remember Garrett Hedlund? Dude went from being the hottest thing in Hollywood after Tron one week to us NEVER hearing about him again all because his handlers didn't know wtf to do after he 'blew up'
Anyway.. It's refreshing to see a young guy have a team around him that seem to be playing the game extremely smart.
