For being a fan film that was pretty well made. I'm 1000% in for a full length film.

Thought he would have been better cast in Green Lantern than Ryan Reynolds.

Pretty impressive work for presumably almost zero budget. Would love to see Fillion star in an Uncharted movie.

Holy shit, this was fantastic. I have zero desire to see the real Uncharted movie now.

Re: Uncharted fan film - starring Nathan Fillion

Was I the only one who watched this and thought to themselves screw a movie, lets do an Uncharted TV series with Fillion in the lead?

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Pump the brakes junior. It was pretty entertaining, but let's not go overboard.

Someone is still down for the Marky Mark Uncharted? Wow.

I say give these guys a real budget and go for it... just replace Lang with Bruce Campbell.

You honestly think the Uncharted movie is going to be better this? There is zero chance it will. Zero.

Never thought we'd actually get to see Fillion as Drake. That was amazing! Who made it? Obviously someone who is friends with Nathan Fillion.

Allan Ungar, who's directed some Canadian films, directed the short.

Fillion and director Allan Ungar eventually met through mutual friends, and discovered a shared passion for the franchise. That led to Ungar, whose previous films include the Canadian action films “Tapped Out” and “Gridlocked,” making his pitch.

Over a vegan Thai dinner one night, “Allan wooed me with his love of ‘Uncharted’ and his amazing vision,” Fillion said. “It’s something that I’ve wanted to see forever.”

The end result is the below short film, which premiered Monday on YouTube. Written by Ungar and Jesse Wheeler, the film tracks Fillion as Drake, who’s after some ancient artifacts that might lead to some real treasure. Of course, first he has to escape a pack of vicious goons (with action sequences that closely mimic the original games).

According to Ungar, “Uncharted” was shot over the course of five days across various locations in southern California, in between Fillion shooting the ABC cop drama pilot “The Rookie,” and “The Rookie” going to series.
Stephen Lang acted in Ungar's previous film, Gridlocked:

I thought about that, but the games really play out like a movie. A TV series doesn't seem true to the source material in my mind.

Do something with this Sony. Not the adventures of young Nathan Drake or whatever crap you have planned with Tom Holland. Guaranteed whatever they do won’t be as good. This was great. Fillion and Lang were both awesome in their parts and for a low budget short it’s pretty well made.

Re: Uncharted fan film - starring Nathan Fillion

They could do something like they did with Powers and make a miniseries exclusive to their network and consoles. I'm sure that would gain a lot of traffic if Fillion is attached.

Now that is a truly inspired idea!

I thought the short was great for the obviously low budget & doing it quick as possible. Goodness knows I have sat through many an awful short in my day at film festivals that weren't a tenth of this good.

ps. Sony - I would watch Nathan Fillion fold laundry. Yes...he is that entertaining.

Fillion and Campbell together would be a dream team. I don't think I could pick which one of them can deliver a better line.
