Uncharted Movie: Bradley Cooper as Nathan Drake?
Uncharted movie back on, but who’s going to star as our beloved Nathan Drake?
The Uncharted movie has been ruffling feathers since it was announced. First, Three Kings director David O. Russell was attached to direct, with Mark Wahlberg to star. That plan has since (thankfully) been discarded, and now it’s being directed by Neil Burger.
Come on people, you know, he directed Limitless, starring Bradley Cooper. Which was, um, OK?
Still, according to an interview with craveonline, Burger’s played the games and wants to make his version of Uncharted a more contemporary treasure-hunting movie than the Indiana Jones’s of this world (which he loves, of course). No word yet on the lead actor, but given that they’ve worked together before who would bet against Cooper taking the role?
Nobody, that’s who. We’re still sceptical – the best videogame movie of all time is the Jason Statham-starring Crank, and that’s not even based on a videogame – but this seems like a step in the right direction.
Sad for Nathan Fillion though. The Firefly actor seems the perfect fit for the role. As ever, let us know what you think in the comments below.
