‘Uncharted’ Fan Film Stars Nathan Fillion as Wise-Cracking Treasure Hunter

Nathan Fillion Is Starring As Nathan Drake In An Uncharted Fan Film And He’s Perfect Brodie Gibbons Nathan Fillion Is Starring As Nathan Drake In An Uncharted Fan Film And He’s Perfect Brodie Gibbons

Ever since the release of the first Uncharted video game on PS3 in 2007, which saw the world introduced to the roguish adventurer Nathan Drake, fans have mostly agreed that the only actor worthy of filling the character's shoes in a live action adaptation would be Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle). A Canadian writer-director, Ungar specialises in action-films and it shows here as he perfectly condenses Uncharted's larger than life action and boils it down to a brief minute or two during the film's runtime.

Fillion hinted at something Uncharted late last week, and delivered this morning with short film available on YouTube.

While Sony has been attempting to develop a live-action feature film based on Naughty Dog's Uncharted series, fans have always been calling on the studio to cast Firefly star Nathan Fillion as the witty, treasure-hunting lead character named Nathan Drake. Joining the fun is Stephen Lang-on loan from filming the next 14 or so Avatar films-as Drake's cigar-chomping partner-in-crime Sully and Episodes star Mircea Monroe as the treasure hunter's badass photojournalist wife Elena. What's worse, Fillion and Ungar's project could meet the same takedown notice-laden fate of previous fan films based on licensed properties. Thank you fans, you know who you are. Fillion is as spot-on as advertised as a Drake quipping his way through a brutal beating and video game physics firefight. Hopefully, this short can whet the appetite of Uncharted fans while also showing the big wigs that this is the kind of movie we would want to see from the franchise.
