Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

While most fans of the Uncharted video game were lamenting the script and casting of the Uncharted movie, YouTube user  was doing something about it. You see, morphinapg is a big fan of Uncharted. A really, really, big fan with a lot of time on his hands and a damn good eye for video editing. He liked the game so much that he thought the game deserved a good movie.

Check out the rules he laid down for himself in the making of this conversion from video game to movie after the jump:

Recently, Harrison Ford sat and played Uncharted 3 as part of a promotional advertising campaign in Japan. What makes this interesting is Ford’s reaction and commentary about playing the game. Ford’s reaction is not what I expected, he never seemed like the video game player type. What excites him though is the story telling medium that the game unlocks. Could this spark some interest in Harrison to get involved in an Indy game? Wouldn’t that be great, an Indy game built to Uncharted standards, with Harrison Ford’s voice?

I am betting that by the time Harrison got home his assistant had the system and game bought, installed, and ready to play.

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.

Uncharted-3

Last week, we got the announcement of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 2: Drake’s Deception and then this past Saturday, we got the debut trailer during Spike’s VGA. What we learned during the VGA is that the game has a release date of November 1, 2011 and if you’re gamer like me, then the date can’t come anytime sooner as it’ll be a long wait.

Well, one person didn’t have to wait as Jimmy Fallon (which will probably give some of you more reasons to hate the man) got to play the game for a bit as last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was the show that featured the first game play footage for the upcoming game. We got to see Drake and Sully trying to break their way out of a burning chateau and take on some enemies along the way.

While it may not be much, we did get a small taste that’s making me want some more and it leaves me to wonder, could it be possible that we may get some co-op action with the second player able to play as Sully? We still got a year till the game comes out and as the news come pumping out for the game, you bet this Sony fanboy will report on it.

So Spike’s VGA 2010 just happened and this fat bastard was willing to put up with the lame jokes and other crap that was put on the screen, such as the terrible TMZ skit… yeah, a video game themed TMZ skit (maybe this is why Epic Games pulled Gears of War 3 from the show).
