About a month ago, nerds went ape shit over Mark Wahlberg being cast as Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted film. While folks were crying that Nathan Fillion should be our Drake, I didn’t mind the news that much as Wahlberg seemed very excited about the project. Then, earlier this month, we got news how the plot of the movie has nothing to do with the video game and that it’ll focus more on a “Family Dyanmic” and that’s when I went ape shit.
Here we are a month later, we may have some news that may please most of y’all and also give us hope as Justin Richmond, the director of Uncharted 3, reveals some things about the upcoming flick. First off, it seems that David O’ Russell may have been misquoted about the film’s plot having a family dynamic as O’Russell gave Richmond a call on the matter and said that he had no idea what these folks were talking about.
Richmond then said that Wahlberg is no where close to being confirmed to play as Drake as it seems to be nothing but a Hollywood rumor. As for Nathan Fillion possibly getting the role as that’s what fans want, Richmond replied by saying “message received.”
So, was Wahlberg talking out of his ass that he is Nathan Drake? Was O’Russell’s interview with LA Times misinterpreted? Who knows? The world of internet is always full of rumors and movie plots can change within an hour. How do y’all feel about this news? Does this news give y’all hope for Fillion as Drake? A plot that may have something to do with the video games? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
