Horrible Bosses Seth Gordon to direct Uncharted

02.04.2014by:

UNCHARTED fans, the live-action adaptation of your beloved video game now has a director. It's an interesting choice...

Seth Gordon will helm the action adventure. What has Gordon worked on? THE KING OF KONG (Great documentary, also background with games), FOUR CHRISTMASES, HORRIBLE BOSSES, and IDENTITY THIEF. Curious choice...

For those who haven't played the game, here's a brief synopsis:

Next step is to find a protagonist to play Nathan Drake, the treasure and antiquities hunter and descendant of the famed explorer Sir Francis Drake. With a female journalist and his mentor by his side, Drake attempts to find the lost treasure of El Dorado. It is a big-scale adventure film.

David Guggenheim (SAFE HOUSE, BAD BOYS 3) was the last to have his hand in the script.

The next task is to find a Nathan Drake. Who do you pick? Say Nathan Fillion. I know you want to. I say Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from GAME OF THRONES.

THE FINDER

As long as it isnt Mark Walburg i am good with it.. I think anyone who has played the game would agree that Nathan Fillion does come to mind, but with him getting longer in the tooth mixed with the fact that it is hard to believe any movie company would give him the helm I would have to say my guy for this would be Geoff Stults from the tv show The Finder and now Enlisted.

I was kinda hoping Gore Verbinski would do this. Granted, Lone Ranger wasn't exactly the best movie of 2013, but that wasn't his fault. The man has a fantastic eye for wide, scenic visuals and given the right script, can work wonders around the action-adventure genre. Take POTC1, POTC2, and especially Rango as perfect examples of what I just said.

Oh, and Josh Holloway for Nathan Drake. Definitely.

I posted on MFC over a year ago that I thought Nikolaj Coster-Waldau would be a great choice; I thought I was the only one who felt this way.

How about they just focus on making the games? They should be rolling these out every 2 years minimum!

Hold up

All of the ratings on this article are 100% positive and none seem to be talking about who the director is.. so why? Is this REALLY who we want adapting the Uncharted franchise into a movie? It's a tricky project to begin with and one that needs to have the utmost attention, and I'm not sure that Seth Gordon is the guy who's up to the task.

cast

Drake - I think Josh/Nikolaj are pretty good castings so I'd be happy with either of those.
Sully- Tom Selleck. I just see it working. Maybe he'd have to dye the 'stache and all but still...
Elena - Kristen Bell

Just my opinions.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has my vote.

5 years ago I would have said Nathan Fillion, but I think that ship has sailed. Why all the douche baggery towards Fillion on here? He's the popular fanboy choice for this role for a reason.

videogame adaptions

Videogame adaptions often result in a "so-so" movie, I would love that Uncharted changes that because I love the games and characters! Bruce Cambell for Sully would be awesome, fore nathan it will be difficult, I think that Holloway and Ackles are good choices like some mentioned below, maybe even Gerald Butler or jake gyllenhaal...they both have the looks for it. Bradley Cooper not as drake for sure, maybe cast him as a villain, i think he would be a great badguy!

Thoughts on the director: Don't like his films, but I feel he could work well with this.
Liam Hemsworth and Josh Holloway have my vote.

Josh Holloway

Would love to see Josh Holloway get this role. He could pull of this character easy, just channel Sawyer through Indiana Jones and you would have a suave Nathan Drake.

They should cast Jensen Ackles as Nathan Drake, the guy would be perfect casting.
And Mel Gibson as Sully

I really like both of these choices. Ackles and Gibson are great at comedy as well as action/drama which is the wonderful balance the game nails. Fillion would've been perfect 10 years ago but now he's just a bit too old.

Fillion is old and chubby now, and I've never seen him display dramatic chops. What is the internet's obsession with him again? Oh, that's right, scifi television nerds.

I think about of his fans come from his Firefly role. He did pretty well there as well as in Serenity, where he had some dramatic moments. I haven't seen Castle, but seeing as it's on Network Tv, it would be a far cry from his time with Joss Whedon.

I hope it turns out

last time this news popped up it was under David O. Russell and if I remember correctly, he ended up wanting to take the story so far out from its original material, the backlash from all the stuff he said was massive. hopefully the studio learned from this and keep it in line with the way the characters are expected to be. yes, its a movie version, but the material doesn't need too much tinkering to fit the big screen.

Not crazy about an Uncharted movie let alone made by a guy with only those movies to his name. These games are so damn good, you need a spectacular director to pull it off

My top choice is still Nathan Fillion. If he can't play a superhero in his own franchise, then I think this would be the next best thing for him.

My second choice would be Bradley Cooper.

I think this franchise doesn't need a film adaptation cause the game itself tends to be a amazing video game/interactive film through its story telling BUT since they are making it this could be one hell of a film if they get it right.

I think every ones choice for Drake would be Nathan Fillion, mines included, but I think he's a bit too old for the role now. Maybe he could still pull it off, who knows. What I do know is the only person who could take on the role of Sully is Bruce Campbell.

If they did cast Nathan Fillion and Bruce Campbell as Drake and Sully I think the internet would explode.

As much as I love Fillion, he's aged a lot since Castle even began. I wouldn't mind Bradley Cooper or Chris Pine to take on Drake. They both have that sarcastic humour Fillion would pull off.
Just no big family museum nonsense what's his name was gonna do. Also, I nominate Bruce Campbell for Sully.

I still say Nathan Fillion. Not only because the man deserves a terrific franchise but anyone who has played the games knows he'd be a spitting image of Drake.
