We get it. You want Nathan Fillion to play the part of Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie. Sony knows it, we know it, Fillion knows it. He knows it so intimately, in fact, he’d like you to stop being so crazy about it.
“I am certainly still interested in playing Nathan Drake”, the Firefly star told Screenrant at Comic-Con. “I think every actor I know wants their action-adventure hero, their Indiana Jones. That would be a good one for me, I think. What I don’t want is people pressuring that poor man [director Neil Burger]and souring him on the actual idea. If we could somehow just… do you remember the movie Inception? I think that’s what we need to do. We need to let him land on the idea on his own.”
And no, nutjobs, he doesn’t mean actually try and get into Burger’s head. Just relax. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be, and if it’s not, you don’t really need an Uncharted movie anyway! You’ve got the games. They’re movies where you do the shooting.
