Allan Ungar Uncharted Fan Film Stars Nathan Fillion

TODO alt text

Following several teases last week from actor Nathan Fillion relating to the Uncharted series, today we saw the result being a brilliantly-made fan film starring Fillion as the series' protagonist Nathan Drake, and new details have arrived from Fillion on how it all happened, along with what is in store for him and his fan favorite Destiny 2 character, Cayde-6.

So rather than wait around for another opportunity to star in a big-budget action movie based on the franchise, Fillion instead opted to produce and star in a short, live-action fan film which dropped on YouTube this morning. So director Allan Ungar made a decision to just go ahead and give the fans what they want in a fifteen-minute fan film, anyway. Thank you, @allanungar, for letting us all scratch this itch. Joining the fun is Stephen Lang-on loan from filming the next 14 or so Avatar films-as Drake's cigar-chomping partner-in-crime Sully and Episodes star Mircea Monroe as the treasure hunter's badass photojournalist wife Elena. There was even an Ernie Reyes Jr. sighting as the swoll yet diminutive strongman El Tigre.

The observatory added that the tiny island is likely part of the flow from fissure number eight, which is entering the ocean. The lava came from the Kilauea volcano , which has been erupting for months.

If this is anything to go by, we should hand the reigns of the upcoming film over to this pair, who clearly understand the look and feel of the Uncharted universe - and are happy enough to play around in it simply as a passion project. The short follows Drake after he has been kidnapped by a group of shady-looking individuals who believe that he stole a priceless artifact, which he denies. Sadly the movie adaptation of the "Indiana Jones" meets "Tomb Raider" video game has been stuck in development purgatory for years.

Time will tell. Until then, check out the fan-film below-which Fillion, both a hero and a gentleman, also co-produced himself-and dream of that sweet, sweet alternate reality where a Fillion feature-length exists.
