Nathan Drake Heading to Hollywood

Evan Wells's Avatar Posted by on Jun 27, 2009 // Co-President, Naughty Dog


News in Hollywood travels fast!

I am happy to confirm that it is indeed true, Sony Computer Entertainment has signed a deal with Columbia Pictures for a movie adaptation of Uncharted: Drake‚Äôs Fortune and it will be produced by Avi Arad, Charles Roven, Ari Arad and Alex Gartner. We have been working with Avi and the folks and Columbia for quite some time and look forward to sharing additional details on the film in the short future. Obviously we designed the game to be a cinematic experience and we too can’t wait to see it on the big screen.

So, who do you think should play Nathan Drake?

I hope it is expansionary in nature to the games. A story not told by the games but has its roots to the series. I think that would be a compelling way to connect the two mediums and products together.

Johnny Depp or Christian Bale


+ mywhitenoise on June 29th, 2009 at 11:52 am said:

Nathan Fillion.

I am so SICK of Bale and Depp!


+ JediKnight25 on June 29th, 2009 at 12:08 pm said:

Definitely Bradley Cooper from “The Hangover”…he not only looks sorta like the part but he’ll add Nathan Drakes comic relief!


+ JOSEV1990 on June 29th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

I think the guy from that movie called the librarian movie Noah wyle


+ JOSEV1990 on June 29th, 2009 at 12:19 pm said:

or Nathan fillion because they have the same humor


+ eaglefan129 on June 29th, 2009 at 12:34 pm said:

Please guys ND please don’t let this suck director should be the same as the game and the music Greg Edmuson for the score


+ FearMonkey on June 29th, 2009 at 2:03 pm said:

Nathan Fillion for Nathan Drake!!!


+ fullmanator on June 29th, 2009 at 2:23 pm said:

Who should play Drake?? Nathan Fillion, hello??


+ manofrock32 on June 29th, 2009 at 3:03 pm said:

Ben Afleck for Nate
The voice actor of Elena actually looks like the character so just do that


+ sazzrah on June 29th, 2009 at 3:27 pm said:

I too am on the Nolan North bandwagon – I think not only is the guy skilled enough to do it, but he deserves it as he really did make Uncharted the experience it was – he (and the other members of the Uncharted cast) really set the bar at a new level of the quality of game voice acting.

That said, I think he would need to buff up a bit for the role. He’s not in quite the physical condition the role of Drake would require. Sorry Nolan – it’s true!


+ Sarge2792 on June 29th, 2009 at 3:48 pm said:

Nathan Drake has been here in La Palma for a while now! lol

Nathan Fillion…



+ Sarge2792 on June 29th, 2009 at 3:53 pm said:

Hmm, Nathan Drake has been in La Palma for quite a while now.

Nathan Fillion i suppose…


+ Lugosi on June 29th, 2009 at 3:57 pm said:

Nate Fillion, Nolan North or David Boreanaz
… Elija Wood???


+ gunm14 on June 29th, 2009 at 3:57 pm said:

I’m torn on this, as Nolan North pretty much IS Drake, but if not, then Nathan Fillion has got to do it.


+ Suly2k on June 29th, 2009 at 4:12 pm said:

Hugh Jackman!

He needs to be Solid Snake also!

He needs to be everybody! He is SO COOL!


+ raze464 on June 29th, 2009 at 5:37 pm said:

I think Brendan Fraser or Nicholas Cage.


+ iExile on June 29th, 2009 at 5:38 pm said:

You people saying David Boreanaz can’t be serious. He is one of the worst actors I’ve ever witnessed and Bones is a terrible TV show.


+ raze464 on June 29th, 2009 at 5:38 pm said:

Or Hugh Jackman.


+ TheGodSend on June 29th, 2009 at 5:47 pm said:

NOLAN NORTH….. if you pick someone like ben affleck or chris bale or butler….. i’ll kill myself, don’t think i won’t darn it, im a dangerous man…. ok i won’t kill myself lol but seriously, nolan north or Nathan Fillion,
the article i just read just now off of n4g.com listed possibly THE worst people you could possibly choose for Drake except for Nathan Fillion. ben afflick? really? please…. i rather see CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW as nathan drake lol


+ tweed01 on June 29th, 2009 at 7:16 pm said:

Definitely Nathan Fillion, i can’t say i am a huge fan of firefly but he is a good actor who sounds and looks a lot like Nathen Drake.


+ darksniper62 on June 29th, 2009 at 7:38 pm said:

Y’know Uncharted would make a pretty awesome movie.
And IDC who plays the characters as long as they’re good.


+ platinumrug on June 29th, 2009 at 8:13 pm said:

Ryan Reynolds, end of discussion.


+ fuhrl on June 29th, 2009 at 9:35 pm said:

David Boreanaz would be a great fit.


+ Kedaro on June 29th, 2009 at 10:17 pm said:

Nathan Fillion is the only actor I could remotely see having the exact skills, and talents, appearance, character, and sarcasm, that Nathan Drake possesses, He would just completely and utterly nail this role to the wall, and make not only hollywood proud, but Naughty Dog and Sony as well, as an up and coming, momentum(popularity) gaining TV star, he would be perfect for this movie role, I really can’t see anyone else in Drake’s shoes…
The man is a brilliant actor, and deserves an offer he can’t refuse to play this role.
To see his past work see some of the later seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer when he appears as a sadistic, and moraly corrupt preacher, The TV series Firefly, followed by the movie adaptation/culmination/conclusion ‘Serenity’ where he plays a sarcastic, rebelous, set in his ways captain of a spaceship, and more recently the TV series ‘Castle’ where he plays a lighthearted, rambunctious young father/mystery novel writer, who helps the police track down criminals and murderers, wisecracking, and flirting with women,(mainly the female detective assigned to work with him)…


+ Kedaro on June 29th, 2009 at 10:28 pm said:

Either Nathan Fillion or ME! I’m a superstar


+ Kedaro on June 29th, 2009 at 10:32 pm said:

ok my big long comment on why it should be Nathan Fillion isn’t showing up, so… um, yea… Nathan Fillion deserves the role, and Sony/Naughty Dog/Columbia/Hollywood in general deserves Nathan Fillion in this role, it’s a perfect fit, apparantly the numbers are speaking.


+ iExile on June 29th, 2009 at 10:54 pm said:

Just look at how many people voted for Nathan Fillion. It’s obvious that they watched Serenity and immediately thought of Drake.


+ THX7168 on June 29th, 2009 at 11:22 pm said:

Sure, there are 400+ comments and I’m fairly positive no one important will read this but my voice must be heard.

The ONLY person that can do the character justice is none other than Nathan Fillion. And from the comments I’ve read, many MANY people agree.

He would be PERFECT as Nathan Drake. Not only does he look the part but he can actually act the part (wise cracks and such). If ANYONE ELSE plays the role, I will not be watching the movie (that’s a bit harsh…I’ll wait for the DVD release…lol).


+ MadamePriss on June 30th, 2009 at 12:20 am said:

I think that there is no question about who should play Nathan Drake… Nathan Fillion. However, barring that, another choice that I have not heard on here is John Borrowman (Captain Jack Harkness, Dr.Who/Torchwood) He looks like Drake (and Fillion for that matter, lol) and is a very witty and talented actor.

+ ntanon on June 30th, 2009 at 12:39 am said:


or maybe even the actual voice actor
Nolan North!!!!

David Boreanoz


+ ntanon on June 30th, 2009 at 12:42 am said:

Ryan Reynolds

but thats a biiiig maybe.

Hugh Jackman seems more like a Solid Snake type of guy…so no


+ ntanon on June 30th, 2009 at 12:44 am said:


Elena-Emily Rose

Sully-JK Simmons

Roman-Alan Dale


+ NAMEK on June 30th, 2009 at 1:53 am said:

Nathan Fillion as Drake!


+ jasonchi04 on June 30th, 2009 at 4:00 am said:

dont care who plays him as long as its not Toby Migure. lol =-(


+ RikRok on June 30th, 2009 at 4:51 am said:

David Boreanaz,just look him up in google images. His look and charachter fit Drake perfectly. Lets be honest here, Nathen Fillion has the voice yes but he doesn’t look anything like Drake. David Boreanaz voice imo is fine for drake. If you’ve ever seen the series ”Bones” you’ll know what I mean.


+ klasha on June 30th, 2009 at 6:17 am said:

nolan north should play drake! he looks just like drake and his obv has the same voice so yh nolan north or nobody! here look at this pic http://ui04.gamespot.com/1603/picture5a_2.png


+ bteezy4 on June 30th, 2009 at 7:28 am said:

The actor from BONES, I think he would be perfect with his delivery and even subtle resemblance!


+ Jewknowsbest on June 30th, 2009 at 12:23 pm said:

I totally think that Samuel L Jackson should act him. No debate. No questions. No whining.


+ Shadowreaper99 on June 30th, 2009 at 1:26 pm said:

Nolan North he’s like perfect and looks almost exactly like Drake, same goes for Elena if they got Emily Rose as well then this movie would be amazing. I haven’t seen Sully’s actor yet so Sean Connery lol, he’ll just have to gain weight XD. Or he could be Gabriel Roman(the bad guy).


+ Shadowreaper99 on June 30th, 2009 at 1:30 pm said:

Oh and Nolan also voiced Deadpool what more do you need? XD. But then again Ryan stole his role in X-men lol, if you saw the interview they suggested Ryan do Nathan but Nolan didn’t seem to thrilled lol but he was probably just kidding I’m sure he would make a great Nathan. And if they can’t get Nolan, or Ryan then I guess they can go for that Nathan Fillion guy I don’t see whats so great about him though.


+ skunkworker on June 30th, 2009 at 6:56 pm said:

I would have to say again either
Nolan North
Nathan Fillian
Joe Flannigan

They all have good enough humor and cynicism to play the part, go look at joe flannigan in SG Atlantis, or Nathan Fillion in Firefly/ Serenity. They both look like Nathan Drake but Nolan North has the voice


+ daxter831 on July 3rd, 2009 at 7:58 pm said:

Bradley Cooper. Definitely. he looks like him and probably has the same sense of humor! you just have to make him lose a few pounds and give him a haircut! perfect!


+ klasha on July 4th, 2009 at 7:59 am said:

Nathan Drake is! Nolan North! LIKE NOLAN NORTH SAID HE BRINGS HIMSELF TO THE CHARACTER! WHY ARGUE WHIT ALL THESE GUYS WHEN WE HAVE NOLAN?? ITS JUST DUMB FILLION LOL! NEVER MATE NOLAN NORTH OR NOBODY http://ui04.gamespot.com/1603/picture5a_2.pnglook at this pic man he even looks like drake. yall have 2 give up fillion dosent deserv this part plus i want drakes voice in the film! and its a bonus that he looks like him


+ AgtDrake on July 4th, 2009 at 4:00 pm said:

Nathan Fillion is Nathan Drake! Can you really pick a better suited actor? He’s perfect for it. I hope he gets it.

hugh jackman

+ Alaina1990 on July 4th, 2009 at 10:44 pm said:

sorry, i posted the wrong link, i meant this guy!


i think hes perfect!


+ chemicalapollo on July 5th, 2009 at 9:07 pm said:

there an incredible movie in french and can be watched streamed thru netflix called district 13. the lead actor looks similar – maybe a little younger and buffer but his athletic abilities is up their with jackie chan – easily – so he can do alot of his own stunts as well. because nothing worst than watching the hero do blue screen stunts.


+ Dopedup657 on July 9th, 2009 at 11:34 pm said:

they should have the guy who played batman in The Dark Knight be Nathan. And for Elena they should use Hayden Peneteire
