The Limitless director talks about bringing Nathan Drake to the big screen, and who might fill his shoes.
Limitless was actually a really good movie.
Bradley Cooper with black hair? he's got the personality
And Colm Meaney for Sully!
@jony_dols I actually think that could be a pretty good fit. Best suggestion I've heard so far for Sully. I do also like the idea of Bradley Cooper for Drake. Hes doesn't look exactly like him, but I think hes got Drake's persona nailed down. I'd say hes by far a better choice than Fillion. Its not just about looking like Drake, he also has to carry his young and adventurous personality. I don't think Fillion has anymore. He did back with Firefly, but that was 9 years ago and Fillion has aged quite a bit since then.
How bout they just use Nolan North and Claudia Black and all the other actual voice actors. They look nearly the same as their game counterparts.
Nolan North and Emily Rose do look like their characters, but Claudia looks a good bit older than her character does in game.
Fillon has Drakes personality was more than Cooper. But Fillon is getting old and they'll probably be looking for an actor whos a bit younger. And you guys got to get this idea out of yuor head that the original actors are going to play the parts. None of them have to exposure Sony Pictures is looking for. Expect more high profile actors. I feel much more comfortable with this guy at the head than the other.
Limitless was ok but felt that after a while it was just dragged on and got kind of pointless. This is not the guy you want making the Uncharted movie - the guy you want is Christophe Gans or John Moore.
Drake - Nathan Fillion Elena - Kristen Bell Sully - J.K. Simmons
Fuck Kristen Bell.
I think Matthew Davis is a better suit for Nathan Drake. They almost sound & look exactly the same. Kristen bell.... eh.... I don't know. J.K. Simmons in my opinion is a great choice for Sully.
He kinda looks like he could be Uwe Boll's younger brother. LOL!
Urgh STOP MENTIONING NATHAN FILLION The Voice actors have said they want to do it so stop mentioning him. "Who do we need for that part" Listen Neil, as I said, the voice actors/motion cap actors WANT to do there part in the Uncharted movie. You don't even need to think about who to get because they are perfect and fans want them. http://n4g.com/news/811079/... "During the question-and-answer portion of the panel, the actors were asked how they would feel about playing their characters in the stalled but still seemingly developing movie version of Uncharted. All responded that they’d be excited for the opportunity, and as others on the panel put it, the players have grown to fully embody the characters."
"Listen Neil, as I said, the voice actors/motion cap actors WANT to do there part in the Uncharted movie. You don't even need to think about who to get because they are perfect and fans want them." LMAO, u think Neil Burger frequents N4G...much less even knows what it is? Your better off writing off writing him a letter. Btw, the only character of the three that has a ghost of a chance of being in the film is Emily Rose.
I'd say Emily Rose should play Elena in all honesty. But Sully and Drake need new actors. Yes they've got the voice, but neither of them look like they're respective characters. No offense to Nolan, he has the personality obviously, its just he looks a little too old to play Drake imo. But Emily Rose is very similar to her character in Uncharted and her character's personality in Haven is nearly identical to Elena's. So I'd say you couldn't get a better actress to play Elena than Emily.
I know how fustrating is it. Not one interview I've seen where the interviewer ask Neil "Have you considered Nolan North or any of the voice actors for the roles" instead it's "Nathan Fillion is fans favorite blah blah blah"....yeah he kind of was before we realised that they voice actors want to play there parts, now I'd rather have Nolan, Emily and Richard. How can you say you don't know who's right for the role when Nolan/Emily/Richard are the characters in the game. It's very rare where a characters we grow to love in games get a film and the voice actors want to play their characters and now we are just going to let that opportunity fly right past us. <sigh> @LOGICWINS. I think he was just saying "Listen Neil" in his argument. I don't think he actualy means he's going to see it. Only Emily has a chance....why. Most big star actors today we all love to watch used to be no names at one time. Hell some just poped out of no where for being in one film, become more famous and end up popping up in a number of films. Hollywood have taken chances before, they still do...I think Nolan and Richard have a fair chance.
"I think he was just saying "Listen Neil" in his argument. I don't think he actualy means he's going to see it." ????
Yeah it's hard to explain You know when your in an argument and you (depending where you come from) say "Listen mate blah blah blah", I think he's just saying "Listen Neil" because he knows his name therefor dosen't have to say "mate" I understand what he's tyring to say but it's kind of hard to explain it's self XD
LOL It's something like that
which ever actor they choose the actor needs to give himself nathan drake's disinctive hairstyle
So probably won't come out til 2013 then...
"he looks like the guy in the game".... you mean drake? I mean if you played the game, you surely would know at the very least the main characters name....
I wonder who will play Eddy Raja.
Samuel L Jackson : )
What I don't get is, a number of the Uncharted voice actors (who also did the mo-cap) look like their characters and are actually actors outside of voice. Why not use them? Do they actually not want to do it, or do studios wanna go for more star power?
an adaptation of this caliber truly needs the star-power to further drive it. Their all wonderful voice actors but this movie needs some major stars.
It's stupid to be honest. The voice actors really want to play there parts. It's very rare in the gaming industry that we get to love characters on our screen because of the voice actors then when they do a film for that game the voice actors want to play those parts. As I've said before they are letting a great opportunity pass right by @Game0N: Get the villains to be played by big stars......problem solved
Hell at this point get BEAR GRYLLS to do nathan drake. He can survive just about anything and at the same time drink his own..... water to survive.
Chuck Norris as drake.
