After watching a demo of Uncharted 3, I realize that maybe the game truly is the movie.
The whole point of Uncharted is that it's a cinematic experience. Don't need a movie.
Yeah, but if it WAS a movie? Will Smith.
LOL...Will Smith as Nathan Drake. PERFECT.
Remember The Wild Wild West? Jim West went from Robert Conrad to Will Smith? The funniest thing was that Will Smith acted surprised that the role was "originally written for a white guy". I doubt he even knew that it was supposed to be based on a TV show, he'd probably have the same reaction if he were cast as Nathan Drake. Attached: Jim West (Conrad) vs. Jim West (Smith)
Bokeem Woodbine should...obviously.
You're kidding, right?
Samuel L. Jackson
Yes, I was kidding.
Nathan Fillion. He looks and he kind of talks like Drake. He's been great in everything I've seen him as well. Just please not Mark Walberg.
My vote still goes to Kyle Chandler
If they were to make a Uncharted movie I think it should be somebody we never heard of before.
I don't see why Hollywood are so intent on making a live-action Uncharted movie, tbh. If they want to make an Uncharted film...I mean, REALLY want to make one...then why not make it CGI? Get Naughty Dog to make it, put a lot of money into marketing it and garnering mainstream audience's attention, and people will flock to the cinema just to see what all the hype is about. Hollywood seems to think you need a big-name star to get audiences to come to the cinema, but marketing is what's most important when it comes to selling an idea and a movie. Advertise Uncharted as the next Indiana Jones, show off the realistic graphics, show off the character interactions, and make the movie trailers look as exciting as the game trailers...and people WILL buy tickets. If only to see if it lives up to what's being advertised. And hell, CGI movies are pretty popular nowadays. And with realistic CGI becoming more common (Avatar, Beowulf...hell, even the new Tin Tin movie counts), I don't see why they couldn't just make an epic CGI Uncarted movie. I'm personally OK with Hollywood wanting to make a movie, because then it might entice some people to check out the games. But if Hollywood IS going to go with the movie idea, a CGI one would be better than live-action imo. Because no matter how good a live-action Uncharted movie is, there will still be plenty of people who are unhappy with the final result, or envisioned the characters differently, or didn't like the new story. At least a CGI film can't screw that up. Especially if Naughty Dog are the ones behind it.
I love how you bring up Tin Tin. I wonder what an Uncharted movie would be like, since the games are usually 5x the length of a movie.
Indiana jones is already done, if you take away the gameplay then all you really have is an Indiana clone
True, but people still want that type of movie. Even though Indy 4 got bad reviews, people still went to the cinema to see it. People miss fun, exciting, character driven, adventure movies. Stuff like Indiana Jones, The Mummy, hell even the Prince of Persia movie...the types of movies that weren't trying to be SRS BSNS, or Oscar winners, or filled with CGI explosions and car chases to keep the audience interested They were just fun and exciting and wanted to take the audience on an adventure. To capture the audience's imagination.
Yeah an uncharted film would be perfect for CG. Moreover you can accomplish more in that way than traditional live action. But don't get your hopes up guys, Hollywood hasn't got a good track record. Off topic. Tin tin looks incredible, the technology behind it is really quite amazing and I think it will be a must see.
I love it when people say Nathan Fillion should play Drake...Has anybody actually seen him in the however many years since Firefly got cancelled? He doesn't exactly look like Nathan Drake anymore...
He could pass off as Drake if he died his hair, but the most important thing is that he is just like Drake. Anyways, as the guy said above...Uncharted is cinematic and doesn't need a movie. I rewatch the cutscenes as they were movies and remembering what happened inbetween each when I played through them.
Thanks for correcting my typo, Kran.
I'm more talking about...y'know, width.
He just needs to go on a bit of a diet lol. He's great in Castle plus he actually looks like Drake and even kind of talks like him.
they should hire the dude from the Long Live Play Commercial
Depends how good his acting is. He merely lip-synced Nolan North's voice track, and that was just one line. Not really a sure-fire winner when comparing it to an action and script-heavy 2 hour film. But considering Neil Burger's previous casting of Bradley Cooper in Limitless, I wouldnt be suprised, nor would I be upset, if he chose Cooper for Drake. Has the same personalities as drake, give him a wardrobe change and a haircut, and whilst not looking exactly like Drake, has the traits which make Drake who he is.
true enough sir! still he looked just like him lol
Bradley Cooper seems like a good choice.
Am I the only one not fond of this movie idea??
An Uncharted movie would make money plain and simple. Thats how the entertainment industry works.. I personally believe it would suck.I actually think games are kinda better than movies.. But still
nobody. a movie should not be made
I think Robb Schneider would do a good job.
You can dooo it!!!
wouldnt watch it if it was ever made
Yes you would.
Matt damon? he was good as bourne
Drake has more charm in his pinkie finger than Matt Damon has in his entire body
Justin bieber ;)
i loove uncharted but tbh who cares about the movie? uncharted without nolan north is not uncharted
Shia the Beef! If it was good enough for Wahlberg....
Marky Mark was so perfect for Drake's role. His third nipple could have played Sully.
If the original voice actors who play, Drake, Elena and Sully had their roles in the movie I would be really excited! They look alike, they have the voices, they know how to act and are familiar with the roles. It would be so awesome!!
Maybe if Nolan North worked out and trimmed up abit I wouldnt mind if him and Emily got the roles. Sully's voice actor looks nothing like him, so dunno whp would fit his shoes.
Most of us care Orginal voice actors please Nolan really really wants to do it and I bet he would feel bad if he didn't get the chance. I mean it's bad enough him seeing people beg for Fillion when at the end of the day if your going to go out of your way for someone who looks A LITTLE like Drake who is old, out of shape etc you may aswell get Nolan. People just forget about the magic of Hollwood and how they can make someone old looking look young again. If Neil went out of his way to get Fillion I would be p*ssed because it's not fair on Nolan, he helped shape this character and now Fillion will get the reconition from a bigger audience because of it. Plus lets face it in the film world Fillion is also a no name, ok not as bad as Nolan but still...they still want a big star and if you want to get him the part you may aswell get Nolan All they need to do is get Eddie Raja, Roman and Navvaro played by big stars and promote the film with them. Look at the District 9, Sharlto Copley was a no name and he basicaly made the film. Same goes for the Hangover, all three of them were no names...yeah they were in other films before hand but no one give a shit about them then, they got given the chance in the Hangover and look what happened. We all should be fighting for the voice actors to get the role. I wish someone who interviewed Neil would say something to him, they did it for Fillion. By the way apprently when some people asked at PAX who should play the characters the ND staff all said they wanted the Voice actors to play the roles. Maybe they could drop hints to Neil
I think it even be a good idea to do it totally in cgi with the original voice actors doing the, well, voices and mocap. Make it look awesome then follow up with a uncharted 4 on ps4 that looks just as good as a cgi movie
Judy Dench would nail it lol,the guy who plays quin on dexter is good.
Dustin Clare from Spartacus could pull it off. He has the charisma, charm and obviously fit enough for the role.
