The Uncharted film is grow to be much more the stuff of legend than reality. With years in the creating, many director alterations and no script in sight, it is searching ever much more unlikely that we’ll ever see Nathan Drake on the silver screen.
That becoming mentioned, the film does nonetheless have Tom Holland attached to play a young Drake, so perhaps the project just requirements to discover its feet..?
Throughout MCM ComicCon Scotland, GameByte spoke exclusively with Nolan North, the actor behind Uncharted’s Nathan Drake, concerning a specific rumour that the iconic Bryan Cranston is becoming eyed to play potty-mouthed Sullivan.
“Bryan Cranston would be a wonderful Sully. I know, I’ve mentioned this prior to, I believe the path they want to take is Drake in his 20s. And they’ll take some artistic license, and I enjoy it, mainly because do not attempt and mimic what the games did,” Nolan tells me.
“People usually, fans specially, say ‘you ought to play Drake!’ And I’ve played Drake. I’ve accomplished it, been there, accomplished that. And I can not play Drake in his 20s, I can not play anyone in his 20s any longer. And I believe Tom Holland will knock it out of the park, he’s charming, he has the appropriate appear. Add Bryan Cranston to that sort of a cast and it is bound to be fantastic.”
As for irrespective of whether or not the movie’s really going to take place, Nolan seemed doubtful…even prior to I told him that the project had reportedly lost a different director just the day prior to we met for our interview.
“The final I heard, I’ve met a handful of of the directors that’ve come and gone, I’ve been privvy to a couple of the scripts that have come and gone. It is been talked about since…oh boy, a lengthy lengthy time,” says Nolan.
“It’ll be actually intriguing to see if they get a script. I actually believe the December 2020 is in no way going to take place, ’cause they do not have a script however. And it requires a lot longer to shoot and go via post-production than a year. So, specially if they’re gonna do it appropriate.
“But place Bryan Cranston reading the telephone book and I’ll obtain a ticket.”
Travis Knight, who directed Bumblebee, is now in talks with Sony to direct the Uncharted film.
