Nolan North, the voice behind the lovable scamp Nathan Drake, doesn’t seem very keen on the idea of an Uncharted movie.
When speaking in a recent interview with GameNewsOfficial, Nolan said that fans aren’t interested in a movie “no matter who’s the star of it.”
“I think the emotional investment people have with Nathan Drake is so high that it would be very difficult for them to accept somebody else. Even me – my face as Nathan Drake. They might recognise the voice but I don’t even know if they’d accept me.”
Nolan then question whether not the movie would even be financially feasible, given the recent fizzling of the Hitman movie. The Uncharted movie has been in limbo for quite some time, and seems to be losing directors, talent and writers as the days go on. It technically is still set for a 2017 release, but it’s looking unlikely.
On one hand, such a cinematic franchise seems like a great choice for a movie adaptation, but when the game itself is a blend of cinematic and interactive elements – would there be any real need?
