While the Uncharted movie is trapped in development hell, actor Nathan Fillion has teamed up with director Allan Ungar for a short fan film on the popular Uncharted action-adventure game series.
A captured Nathan Drake, played by Fillion, is held in a Mexican mansion accused of stealing from an auction. Diego (Geno Segers) plies Drake for the whereabouts of the stolen treasure, but Drake’s humorous banter isn’t enough to prevent the short and vicious El Tigre (Ernie Reyes Jr.) from being called in to soften him up. However, the cavalry isn’t far behind as the cigar-smoking Sully (Stephen Lang) is just outside. Even the adventurous reporter Elena Fisher makes an appearance.
It’s 15 minutes of fun, filled with fight scenes, quotes referencing previous Uncharted games, and a hope that one day, we’ll actually get to see a feature-length film as good as this.
