Uncharted: The Movie

According to Joystiq, the first draft script of a film adaptation of Uncharted has just been finished. It will be directed by David O. Russell (I ♥ Huckabees), and one of the biggest names to outspokenly be gunning for the lead role of Nathan Drake is Firefly and Castle star, Nathan Fillion. Fillion is attempting to pull a Donald Glover and have a dedicated cult following earn him a sought after part. Fillion tweeted to his followers: "If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!" While I'm not familiar with Fillion's work, I do know there's a big cult following behind Firefly, and anyone who's truly excited about a role rather than it just being another paycheck is a welcome idea. And given the cinematic nature of the Uncharted series, it's no doubt that this movie should blow up huge when it hits theaters.
