Uncharted: The Movie

Now that Chris Pratt is no longer a viable option with both GoTG2 & JW2 slated, I personally think that Pablo Schreiber would be the perfect guy to play Nate based upon his turns in Orange is the New Black (as Pornstache) & also in The Brink (as Zeke). He's got the perfect comedic delivery but in the latest episode of The Brink where him & his co-pilot are fake fighting & jawing, he grabs an AK47 & I just thought "he's Nathan Drake". Plus, if they want the older brother they can always call on his older half-brother Liev Schreiber to play Sam :) And I'd also love to see Bryan Cranston play Sully (though the height difference maybe an issue) & Michelle Williams as Elena.

Or the original actress, Emily Rose, as Elena.

And we're back on with a new director, with a view to fast track the movie into production - 

 

Quote

 

Sony Pictures has set the Uncharted director! According to Deadline, the studio has hired Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum films, Real Steel) to direct the video game adaptation. The film was recently removed from the studio’s release calendar – it was previously looking at a June 30, 2017 release date. Joe Carnahan (Narc, The Grey) is writing the script for the film.

 

Based on the action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive, the story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is escalated when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets.

 

There have been three sequels to Drake’s Fortune, with the latest, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, having hit stores in May of 2016.

 

Previous drafts of the script were written by Academy Award-winning writer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty), Oscar nominee David O. Russell, Doctor Strange‘s Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, Safe House‘s David Guggenheim, and Cormac and Marianne Wibberley of National Treasure fame.

Uncharted is an Arad/Atlas Entertainment Production, with Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad producing.

They really should just cast Emily Rose. Not only is she the voice but shes basically Elena in real life form too. She's got live action acting experience too hasn't she.

 

Its a shame Nathan Fillion isn't 10 years younger otherwise he'd be perfect for Nate.

Why? Exotic locations, decent ruins and lots of gunplay. Decent action movie.

 

Because I think a lot of what gives Uncharted its charm is how it develops as you play. I don't think that would translate well to a 2 hour long action film personally. But short 15-20 minute episodes I think would work well.

 

I am no critic, so I am likely wide of the mark.

But a film with a good script can develop characters and story and still have lots of charm.  Just seems such an odd thing to limit it to 20 minutes when a decent length movie would be much better. Bigger budget for a start and decent locations.

I enjoyed it. Some big names in there but still can see where the budget would normally go.

 

Yeah the gun fight felt very low budget. Having said that I did like how they tried to make it look like the game where the camera pans behind Nate before a gun fight.

This was fun, plus I'm always happy seeing Nathan Fillion.

 

Agreed a movie might be too generic, but maybe a netflix mini-series would be good?

Saying that, Hooten and the Lady on Sky One is kind of Uncharted-y.

Kind of weird how many people are amazed at how suited Fillion is to playing Drake as if it’s some sort of amazing coincidence, and not clear proof that Drake’s character was based on Fillion. They even have the same first name!

Did someone say Nathan Fillion?

 

I think this sums up why it won't make a particularly great feature length film. This is fine and probably the best way you could represent the game. It just feels terribly derivative in this medium. It worked as game and even that feels played out at this point.
