Uncharted Live Action Fan Film: A teaser for something that will never be
I'm a huge Uncharted fan, I believe the game franchise is one of the greatest ever created through a combination of fantastic stories, voice acting and construction.
For this reason I've always been on the fence regarding a potential film. Yes I'd love to see it on the big screen but I don't want to see it get the mindless Hollywood treatment and be a complete bust.
For as long as I can remember I've said that Nathan Fillion is Nathan Drake. The man not only looks identical to the character but can play both dramatic and comedic perfectly.
The rumours have been flying the past couple of years that it'll happen but Tom Holland will be playing a young Nathan Drake. This to me seems moronic, making Drake Jnr would surely be a straight to dvd spinoff effort and not the focus of a movie franchise?! Surely!?
This fan made film stars the man himself in the lead role and Stephen Lang as Sully. My belief that he truly is Nathan Drake was confirmed, he was perfect.
At just 15 minutes there really isn't much here and it tells the quick story of our hero breaking free of his confines and battling a series of henchmen.
Fillion is perfection, Lang isn't half bad but our Elena? Certainly a weak link.
This live action fan film is fantastic it goes to demonstrate what could be, a potentially outstanding film just waiting to be made. Sadly however, this is almost certainly the closest we'll get.
Essentially viewing for Uncharted fans.
Nathan Fillion IS Nathan Drake
That simply isn't Elena
It's a tease
Things I Learnt From This Short:
Nothing they ever do with Tom Holland will come close to this
This could make a brilliant television series!
