Nathan Fillion As Nathan Drake In Uncharted Fan Film

A movie based on Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been stuck in a special level of development Hell for quite a while now. To give you an idea, Sony put the project on the fast track…back in 2009.

For a long time fans of the games were begging Sony to cast Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion in the lead role of Nathan Drake. Because Fillion is without question the best possible actor to play Drake, and fans knew it. Hell, even Fillion himself wanted to play Drake. Unfortunately Sony didn’t agree, and numerous other actors have been attached to the role over the years.

But none of that matters now. Since Sony didn’t give the fans what they wanted, the fans themselves have done it instead. It’s just a short fan film sadly, but it is a live-action Uncharted movie starring Fillion as Drake. You can check it out below, if it hasn’t been pulled for some reason.

Tom Holland in Spider-Man: Homecoming

Sony has finally found someone to play Nathan Drake in their long-in-development movie based on the Uncharted video game series, and it is not someone you were expecting.

It would appear that the studio is quite high on the star of their latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Tom Holland, as the actor has become the latest actor attached to play Drake. Why they chose such a young actor for the role makes a little more sense when you see the reason, though I’m not very confident that it will make fans of the games feel better about the casting or the direction the movie is now moving in.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

A movie based on developer Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been in the works for a long time now. Many have tried, and failed, to bring it to life on the big screen. At this point, most of those interested in seeing the movie roll their eyes when news of another attempt at making the movie arrives.

So, with that said, here’s some new news on the Uncharted movie! It’s being reported that yet another director has been hired in Shawn Levy to try to pull off the adaptation. Levy is best known as the director behind the Night at the Museum movies, and he is an executive producer of the Netflix hit Stranger Things and directed a couple of episodes. He’s also directed titles like Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther (2006), Date Night, Real Steel, and The Internship.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

The Uncharted movie continues to travel a rather bumpy road after numerous writers, directors, and rumored stars have been attached and detached and replaced on the project.

Last July Sony pushed back The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years from 2016 to 2018 (before that who reboot was scrapped for the new re-reboot tag team effort with Marvel), and moved the movie based on Naughty Dog’s hit video game series Uncharted into Spidey’s June 2016 slot.

Now comes word that Sony has moved the Uncharted movie back yet again, this time bumping it back an entire year to June 30, 2017.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

A movie based on video game maker Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted series is still in the works, but hasn’t had much luck with the tricky task of finding the perfect star to play primary protagonist Nathan Drake or figuring out how to get the script exactly where it needs to be.

According to reports, Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt is the most recent to be offered the role of Drake, but the actor has declined that offer. It’s also being reported that yet another writer has been brought in to work on the screenplay, Oscar winner Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty).

Sony Sets Release Dates For ‘Sinister Six,’ ‘Amazing Spider-Man 3,’ ‘Uncharted’

Sinister Six

A year ago Sony Pictures Entertainment had such high hopes for their rebooted Spider-Man franchise. Production on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was moving forth without a hitch and early footage from the blockbuster sequel screened at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con to an enthusiastic response. Back in December the studio was so certain that it was going to be the biggest movie of this summer, if not 2014, that they announced plans to exploit their ownership of the movie rights to the Spider-Man universe by developing spinoffs that would star Spidey villains Venom and the Sinister Six.

The plan originally was for Amazing Spider-Man 2 screenwriters Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Jeff Pinkner to collaborate on the Venom feature, while Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard would write and eventually be called upon to direct the Sinister Six movie. Then Amazing Spider-Man 2 opened to withering reviews from critics and less box office than the studio had initially projected. I haven’t seen the second movie in the rebooted series yet but the consensus is that the gluttony of villains, lack of attention paid to the main characters, and an anti-climatic ending that was to have paved the way for the spinoffs are what hurt its chances at the box office. A $706 million worldwide haul is hardly anything to sniff, but Sony was hoping that Amazing Spider-Man 2 would top out at a solid billion and change at the very least.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

The long-in-development movie adaptation of Naughty Dog’s hit video game series Uncharted is moving forward again. After an unsuccessful run with American Hustle director David O. Russell attached to direct—which famously went south quickly with fans after reports of Mark Wahlberg starring in the lead Nathan Drake role and Russell wanting to add Drake’s father and uncle for a family element surfaced online—and also the hiring of The Illusionist director Neil Burger to try his hand at making the movie ultimately not working out, a new director has been brought in.

It’s being reported that Seth Gordon, the director behind comedies like Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief, has entered into negotiations for the job.

Uncharted 2 Image

We’ve been hearing about the hopes to turn current hit The Last of Us developer Naughty Dog’s incredible Uncharted video game series into a movie for years now, with little luck. For a while it looked like The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell was going to make the movie, but his plans to cast Mark Wahlberg and significantly change the game’s already solid story did not go over well with fans, who desperately wanted Firefly star Nathan Fillion cast in the lead, ultimately leading to Russell’s departure from the project.

Last we heard the writers of National Treasure had been brought in to deliver the latest attempt at the script, but no word on how that went. Instead, it’s now been revealed who Naughty Dog has wanted to write the script for several years now: This Is The End writing and directing duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

It’s been difficult to get a film adaptation of Drake’s Fortune into production, and with Neil Burger taking himself out to direct the project, fans of the video game will have to wait a lot longer before they can see Drake seek a lost treasure. But Sony is hiring two writers who are familiar with the themes of Drake’s Fortune, which may help steer the adaptation into the right direction.

Variety reports that National Treasure scribes Marianne and Cormac Wibberley have been hired to write the script for the film. The recent hiring is a smart move as the two have had plenty of experience writing about riddles, puzzles, and ancient hidden treasures.
