There’s hope for Nathan Fillion yet! With a story plotted and lead cast, Uncharted is chugging right along. Oh, except now it doesn’t have a story or a cast.

Nathan Fillion Wants To Insert Himself In David O. Russell’s ‘Uncharted’
Friday, October 15 by

"Did he just call me the 'C' word?"
David O. Russell surprised us all when he pulled a Paul Thomas Anderson Paul W.S. Anderson and took the helm of videogame adaptation Uncharted. MTV reports that Nathan Fillion, who apparently doesn't mind gettin' told, took to Twitter to campaign for the lead. He told his nerds:
"If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!"
And rise they did. They took to Deadline's comment section to nominate Fillion for the role. He should realize if you wanna get anything done, you need to take your case to Facebook. Look what it did for Betty White and that pickle that's more well-liked than Nickelback. I've gotta agree though. Fillion would be a great fit for the project. He's got the chin, the bravado, and the swagger. With juuuuust a little bit of special effects work, he could really look the part. As evidenced by this high-end digital mock-up.

David O. Russell Will Bring Video Game ‘Uncharted’ To The Big Screen
Monday, October 11 by

I don't know what's happening to our arthouse directors. Last week Aronofsky was linked to Wolverine 2 and now Sony has confirmed that director/Lily Tomlin enemy David O. Russell has been hired to write and direct an adaptation of the videogame "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune." So, you know, I'm all like, 'Whhaaaaaatttttt????!!?????'
Originally, Kyle Ward was hired to write the script but lost the gig due to duties on Hitman 2. Then Sony went to Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, even though they wrote Sahara and A Sound Of Thunder. Somehow, the gig now belongs to O. Russell. I guess Paul Thomas Anderson (either one in this case) was unavailable.
