Default Uncharted to become a movie?

Look out, Indy -- a new cliffhanging treasure hunter is headed to the big screen, and he's got plenty of chops. At least, he does if his video game experience is any indication.
Nathan Fillion/Nathan Drake

The adventurer is Nathan Drake, star of the two smash hit Uncharted games for the PS3 -- and soon to be coming to a theater near you, reports The Hollywood Reporter. Sweetening the pot for fans of the game is news that acclaimed filmmaker David O. Russell ("Three Kings," "Flirting With Disaster") will both write and direct the adaptation for Columbia Pictures.

But who will play the lead role? That's yet to be decided, but if fans had their way, it would likely go to another Nathan: Nathan Fillion, who also happens to be a dead ringer for the video game character. And the 'Castle' star thinks it's a pretty great idea, too.

"If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it," Fillion tweeted to his half-million followers, linking to a news story about the Uncharted movie news.

He sure seems like the perfect match on paper. While there's been no word how closely the film -- currently dubbed "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" -- will follow the events of the first game, it's bound to be jam-packed with loads of precarious leaps, frantic shootouts, and a healthy helping of smart-alecky one-liners. In other words, exactly the stuff that made Fillion a man among geeks during his brief stint as a Han Solo-like spaceship captain in the short-lived sci-fi series 'Firefly.'

Not everyone is hoping Fillion lands the role, however. Nolan North, better known as the voice of Nathan Drake (among countless others), sees dashing tough guy Hugh Jackman as the best fit for the part.

Cool stuff. I'd definitely see it.

If done properly, Uncharted could make an epic movie. I'd go see it on opening day.

That could make for a really good movie. Like a new-age Indiana Jones. Not a bad movie series to emulate with a new spin.

I just hope there's no zombies this time around.
