If you're one of the many that's ever thought "hey, Nathan Fillion would make an awesome Nathan Drake from Uncharted", you've just struck gold.
While the official movie seems to be stuck in development hell, with the latest version starring Tom Holland as young Drake, Fillion and director Allan Ungar have partnered to create a fifteen minute fan film.
Fillion hinted at something Uncharted late last week, and delivered this morning with short film available on YouTube.
Sure, the team behind this may not have the rights, but that hasn't stopped them from creating something with great action, impressive production quality, and all the quips and one-liners you could expect from Nathan Fillion/Drake.
Naughty Dog's old co-president, Christophe Balestra wasn't just impressed, he also had something to say about the status of the official movie.
Hey Hollywood people, aren't you ashamed that @Allan_Ungar pulled off something you couldn't do in more than 10 years. Thank you @Allan_Ungar & @NathanFillion for staying true to @Naughty_Dog's creation. #Uncharted https://t.co/yqDhVYgqIu— Christophe Balestra (@cbalestra) July 16, 2018
Who knows? Maybe Hollywood is paying attention and will take this as an audition tape. Hell, it worked for Ryan Reynolds.
