Fans have been begging for Nathan Fillion to be cast as Nathan Drake in an Uncharted film for years, but the role has reportedly gone to Tom Holland instead. So why has Nathan Fillion been teasing an Uncharted announcement this week? As it turns out, in the absence of being cast in the official movie, Fillion has decided to film his own Uncharted short film.
The film is directed by Allan Ungar (Gridlocked) and written by Ungar and Jesse Wheeler with Fillion producing. It’s set in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico and opens with Nathan Drake (and/or Fillion) being interrogated by some intimidating men who believe he has stolen something rare and valuable from their employer. It runs just short of 15 minutes, and you can watch the whole thing by clicking the video above!
Although short, it’s plenty of fun, and Fillion is absolutely wonderful as Drake. Hopefully Sony doesn’t see fit to pull the plug on this one.
