There was actually, Lin Pictures were developing it with Warner Bros as a vehicle for Megan Fox.

I think a movie has been planned since Jolie dropped out but it just never happened. Guarantee if Megan was cast it would have been a very smutty over sexualized version. I like megan but thats sadly always been her niche market.

It's pretty telling when Sony can't think of a single Hollywood actor to play a late 20's early 30's Nathan Drake, that they have to use a 20 year old and change the whole concept of the game's story to make an adaptation. Is he younger? Sure, but they now have to scrap the gunplay, fisticuffs, and huge set piece moments to make it believable that a teenager is traveling to countries and searching for treasure. Unless they make Sully the source of the action pieces, who was 40 when he first met Nathan Drake anyway...so they'd still be making an older guy an action hero.

Would it make sense to cast a guy close to 50 in an Uncharted film? To studio executives, most likely not because they probably wouldn't know how to market it among other things. Fan reactions, however, show they really wouldn't care because Nathan Fillion plays the character extremely well.
Have you played any of the Uncharted games?
The 4th one has a great portion of it taking place in his younger years. They could easily focus on that.

When I said it was relevant I was specifically talking about why it's impossible for them to use Nathan Fillion, unless they made a film set after the games. However, I wouldn't do that... I think a lot of fans would have a problem with that. That's just me though. You're getting really aggressive and defensive about this lol

Aggressive?

Hardly, but yes I know of the Uncharted games. As much as I like Uncharted, it's not my favorite series by a long shot. It's not being defensive, it's having a discussion with you. You kept bringing up that Nathan Drake is a younger character than Nathan Fillion, because that's what the game calls for. Sony decided to go even younger than what the majority of the games have him as. I'm just trying to tell you Hollywood will do whatever they want to. If they want to cast an older/younger guy in an action film, they will.
