    Good choice, love him in Firefly too (and Dr Horrible's of course)

    He'll certainly look the part

    As a huge fan on Firefly, I'd have to say yes! He's the perfect fit for the lovable cheeky chap that is Nathan Drake!

    I loved him in Firefly/Serenity. Think he'd be brilliant in this role.

    Are they making a movie? .....games don't normally transfer well to the big screen.

    Liked the Resi movies though.

    I have a female friend who is a little bit obsessed with Nathan from Uncharted!
    Her choice would be Joe Flanigan from Stargate Atlantis.

    Either him or Nathan Fillion would both fit the bill in my opinion though.

    Its hardly a revelation ehre is it! I mean the guy is called Nate, he even dresses like Captain Mal...Meh on the whole uncharted movie idea.

    He is a great choice for the role if the movie happens imo

    This film should never happen in the first place! I don't know, will probably come across as Indiana Jones lite, which would be a shame, as the series has been terrific fun thus far. It'd be nice to have a successful, fun and entertaining game that doesn't need to be made into a film.

    Although Nathan Fillion is never a bad choice.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,788 ✭✭✭✭ krudler


    Fillions nearly 40 so hes a bit older than Nate is meant to be (I think) If this got a decent director (no Stephen Sommers!) and a good mix of action it could ge a great new franchise, the comparisons to Indy are inevtiable but its Indy set in modern times, thats not a bad thing. Plus Uncharted 2 is like playing the best summer blockbuster in years anyway, it should translate to a movie really well.

    Why not get the man behind the voice to do it?

    Heh just read this after seeing this thread: http://kotaku.com/5603757/uncharted-movie-back-at-square-one-after-director-talks-break-down

    So no movement at the moment. David O Russell (the angry, angry man behind I Heart Huckabees and Three Kings) is out - to be honest, I'd have actually been interested if he was on board! Alas, let us hope it doesn't wind up on Ratner's doorstep.

    Joe Flanigan is the first person I'd have thought of for the role (I actually thought he did the voice of the main character. But then again I also though Leslie Nelson did the voice of his friend, so I'm not too good at this!).

    After him Fillion would be great. Though IMDB have a guy called Samuel Brody as rumoured to be interested. Never heard of the guy.

    Uncharted 2 is without doubt one of the best games I've played in years and is certainly cinematic enough for a film .

    As for who should play him why not the guy who voices him in the game

    not that I'm saying Nathan Fillion wouldn't be great in the role the dude clearly has charisma to burn .

    D'oh! :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,204 ✭✭✭ Elessar


    Weren't the characters in Uncharted 2 modeled off the actors themselves? And the motion capture and voicework was all done by the same people. The guy who did they voicework would be perfect!

    David O. Russell has closed a deal to write and direct "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune," an adaptation of the 2007 PlayStation 3 video game, for Columbia Pictures.

    Back in May, Russell first flirted with the project, but then moved on to develop a big-screen adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

    But his quest to direct the PS3 game adaptation pulled him back in, leaving "Zombies," for the moment, undead.

    Despite making his somewhat combative reputation with left-of-center indie films such as "Spanking the Monkey," "Flirting With Disaster" and "I Heart Huckabees," Russell appears to be making a serious move into bigger-budget mainstream movies. His next film, the boxing drama "The Fighter" from Paramount, comes out December.

    In the mold of epic adventure films like "Tomb Raider" and "Indiana Jones," the "Uncharted" game's storyline follows a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, Nathan Drake, as he searches for the treasure of El Dorado on a desert island with a friend and a female journalist.

    The game itself was developed by Naughty Dog and is one of Sony Computer Entertainment's best-selling games for the PS3. It sold one million copies in the first 10 weeks of its release at the end of 2007 and went on to sell 2.6 million copies and spawn an even more successful sequel, "Uncharted 2: Among Thieves."

    Start production and then i'll get excited! These big videogame adaptions don't get made...


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,237 CMod ✭✭✭✭ johnny_ultimate


    Interesting choice of director, and some great source material (although I can't help but think it seem far more like an Indiana Jones clone in cinema form). But this is a videogame adaptation, so I'm assuming crap until proven otherwise.

    Wisecracking, lovable rogue treasure hunter on an epic quest to uncover a mythical relic encountering nazis and supernatural shennanigans on the way.

    Sound good to you Indy?

    If treated correctly it should be miles better than indy 4.......
    That's not much of a challenge in fairness.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,134 maquiladora


    David O Russell might seem an odd choice, but remember he did...



    I can kinda see it.

    They must really like working with each other.
    Mark Wahlberg told MTV that he will re-team with David O. Russell on a big screen adaptation of the video game "Uncharted."
    The actor's team did not immediately respond to TheWrap's calls for comment.
    This would make the fourth time the pair has worked together. Wahlberg is currently starring in the director's boxing drama "The Fighter." The two have also collaborated on "I Heart Huckabees" and "Three Kings."
    Making the reunion all the more exciting, Wahlberg says that a couple of "Goodfellas" -- Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro -- are circling parts in the film.
    "I'm obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It's not going to be the watered-down version, that's for sure," Wahlberg told MTV.
    Casting talks are still somewhat premature. There's no greenlight yet. Sony has commissioned Russell to work on a screenplay, but he has yet to deliver a final draft.
    In video game form, "Uncharted" focuses on a sharp shooting treasure hunter. Wahlberg said filming should start this summer.
    With Russell behind the camera, "Uncharted" should exceed the low bar set by Wahlberg's other video game adaptation "Max Payne."

    I can see him delivering one liners, but still would rather have Nathan Fillion... What in the world would Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro be doing in this?

    Can't picture Wahlberg being able to be as charming as Drake is. I'm not looking forward to this.
