  Nathan Fillion FTW!!!

#14 Posted by nintendoeats (5975 posts) -

I had no hope for this movie anyway, but freaking Christ. Did they not learn to avoid Wahlberg with Max Payne? He refused to play the game because he was worried that he would get addicted. 
 
Hollywood is dumb.

#15 Posted by Superfriend (1520 posts) -

Dude doesn´t look anything like Drake. Also, why does every goddamn character need a father? Is that a necessary tool for "character development"?
It certainly isn´t in the Uncharted games. You know what an Uncharted-movie really needs? Elena Fisher.
 
Oh no wait I´ve changed my mind. It really needs another half-assed cameo role for some other fuckwit whos cashing in a few checks. Maybe... if his other uncle could look a tiny bit like Ghandi.. - God! Hollywood really has no Idea what the fuck theyre doing, right?!

#16 Posted by JeanLuc (3565 posts) -

I like Mark Wahlberg but he doesn't fit Nathan Drake at all. 
 
More importantly why is Joe Pesci playing his uncle and Robert De Niro play his father?  We've never seen Drake's family before. WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS MOVIE ABOUT?

#17 Posted by RankRabbit (394 posts) -

Really though, aren't the games pretty much already movies?

#18 Posted by Ragdrazi (2283 posts) -

Hey, at least it wasn't Nolan North.
 
Yes! Made the joke before anyone else did!

#19 Posted by Fripplebubby (1027 posts) -

If only Nolan North did movies...

#20 Posted by Swoxx (2988 posts) -

Why the hell would you need to make a movie of it? I'd say that story works better as a game made by naughty dog than any director

#21 Posted by Ragdrazi (2283 posts) -
@Fripplebubby:  Fucking beat you there! Ha!
#22 Posted by Bigrhyno (505 posts) -

I think Wahlberg is a decent actor, but nothing about him or his acting reminds me of Nathan Drake.

#23 Posted by NinjaTard (151 posts) -

Mark Wahlberg is NOT an average guy....which is why I liked Nate Drake so much, he's just a dude who wants to find the treasure and not get shot doing it! Nathan Fillion would be great though, I know he's not a big enough actor to get butts in seats but I think he would make the best possible Nathan Drake.  
 
Any other ideas who would be a good Drake? Anyone is better than Captain Funky Bunch but who would be the best realistic choice?
#24 Posted by FlyingRat (1445 posts) -

I've never even played Uncharted, and i think that sucks...

#25 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5796 posts) -

playing uncharted is already like watching a movie anyways.

I don't really have any other ideas, but I think Nathan Fillion is perfect. I wouldn't be surprised if Naughty Dog used him as an inspiration when creating Drake.
#27 Posted by 02sfraser (847 posts) -

Yeah I think it's a bad choice. Also his uncle and dad? What kind of script are they writing!

#28 Posted by Lucifer (263 posts) -

stare

#29 Posted by Damodar (1283 posts) -

This sucks on so many fucking levels... 
 
It's a game that doesn't require a movie at all anyway. I don't need any Uncharted that's not written by Amy Hennig and not starring the absolutely perfect cast that those games have. 
 
I can't decide which is the worse piece of news in that article, but Mark Wahlberg has zero of the type of charisma needed to pull off the character of Drake, and it sounds like the director actively hates the property almost as much as he likes money if those are his ideas. Joe Pesci as Nate's Uncle! wat.

#30 Posted by Vorbis (2749 posts) -

Our only hope is that it gets cancelled.

#31 Posted by Impossibilium (683 posts) -

Hollywood. You are a fucking idiot.
 
Nathan Drake was Nathan Fillion. It was a casting choice so easy even a random dude at a gas station could have got it right.
 
Nothing about Wahlberg says self-deprecating, kind-hearted everydude that people can empathize with. Hell, even The Rock would be better.

Nathan Drake>Max Payne 
Nuff said 
#33 Posted by coryrx8 (175 posts) -

Marky Mark (I refuse to stop caling him that)? Seriously? Did the casting director not learn anything from watching Max Payne? Oh wait, nobody actually watched that... 
 
This is the guy that not even Francis Ford Coppola could get a decent performance out of. The fact that Uncharted is a video game movie is already one strike against it, do they really want to doom this movie from the start?
#34 Posted by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

Horrible choice, flop confirmed.

Pfft, Nathan Fillion is such an overrated actor. It's ironic that the video is Halo related. LOL! 
 
But seriously? Mark Walhberg? Joe Pesci? Who casted this movie?
#36 Posted by septim (774 posts) -

But who's gonna play Nathan's niece? Who's gonna play his brother in law? His 3rd cousin?
 
So many unanswered questions!

#37 Posted by nick_verissimo (1380 posts) -

Didn't know a movie was being made, but I definitely know I have no interest in it if these are the character choices.  What the hell kind of movie are they making?  Is it some sort of Uncharted story delving in a Mob family's treasure?  I mean come on, Pesci and DeNiro make absolutely no sense compared to Wahlberg as Drake. At least Wahlberg somewhat fits the role, the other two have no context in this movie based upon their bodies of work.

  A leaked scene.

#39 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Hollywood will ruin yet another great game franchise. Sigh...

#40 Posted by yogetoutdaway (126 posts) -

lmao well I don't know about ya'll, but when I hear Indiana Jones-like adventure flick, I think Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. HAHAHA. Doesn't Naughty Dog have a say in any of this stuff?

#41 Posted by Depressing_Wizard (186 posts) -

This shouldn't be a movie in the first place.

#42 Posted by Brenderous (1097 posts) -

Nothing against Mr. Wahlberg.... but no. This is a bad casting decision. 
 
Get Nolan North. He's already starred as Nathan Drake in 2 movies (basically). And he looks a lot like Drake too.

#43 Posted by Dustpan (1690 posts) -

This movie is going to be horrible.

#44 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

Literally my least favorite actor.

#45 Posted by RE_Player1 (7544 posts) -

The movie will be garbage and I will not see it. Stop making video game movies. 

#46 Posted by memo (421 posts) -

thats bullshit.  I like Marky Mark but thats Nathan Fillion's role.  Naughty Dog made Nathan Drake resemble Nathan Fillion WTF. this blows 

#47 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

HOPEFULLY all of the lines are dubbed over by Nolan North.
 
That would be insane!

#48 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2408 posts) -

Jesus fucking christ.............

#49 Posted by TheHT (10796 posts) -

#50 Posted by captain_clayman (3318 posts) -
