Sony and Naughty Dog has been trying to make the Uncharted movie for a while now. While all browncoats who played Uncharted immediately thought of Fillion for the role, Sony has chosen Tom Holland to play the young Nathan Drake in a prequel movie that leads to the events of Uncharted.
I will admit to never playing an Uncharted game—due to not owning the platform it was released on—but having watched many gameplay videos and friends playing the game, I knew the story. As a devout browncoat have a love of most of Nathan Fillion's works.
This witty and charming character is right up his ally, and he pulls it off flawlessly in a short film released on YouTube.
Director Allan Ungar and Nathan Fillion teamed up to create this amazing fan film.
The short film states explicitly that this is a fan film, not supported by Sony or Naughty Dog at all, but with their all-star cast they hit the nail on the head with this little short.
In a post on Instagram, Ungar said that he has wanted to do this ever since Uncharted first came out in 2007, a sentiment which Fillion echoed.
"This is something I’ve wanted to do, but more importantly, something I’ve wanted to see for a long time,” Fillion said on Instagram.
"If you’ve ever pinned a towel around your neck for a cape, or donned a fedora and nearly put your eye out with a homemade whip, this is for you. Thank you, Allan Ungar, for letting us all scratch this itch. Thank you, Naughty Dog, for creating such a wonderful archetype... Thank you fans, for your excellent taste. You know who you are. Enjoy."
