Nathan Fillion might not be playing Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie. But thanks to a recent fan film, the movie’s director has taken notice of his appeal.

Recently a fan film by filmmaker Allan Ungar and Nathan Fillion himself was released, casting Fillion in the role of Uncharted‘s Drake. While the actor might not be playing the character in the upcoming official movie, that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be a great fit for the part.

In fact, Uncharted director Shawn Levy is aware of the film and says he was definitely impressed. Levy recently spoke with Bad Taste about the movie that is currently in production, and the fan film was brought up. Levy called the 15-minute film an “absolutely a surprise.”

Levy said that even though this was a fan-made film starring FIllion, it was done very well all around, from the direction to the way it played out. Not only did he think that it was “very funny,” but he actually said that he liked the mini-movie, “both as a fan of the game and of the franchise.”

While the project did make an impression, we already know Tom Holland has secured the role — sorry Nathan. We would have loved to have seen Fillion take on the role of Drake, so it seems we’ll just have to settle with this fan film (for now).

That being said, there has been plenty of interest in seeing how far the fan film can go, because director Shawn Levy isn’t the only one who enjoyed it. Even if Fillion doesn’t get to play Drake in an official capacity, according to Entertainment Weekly, there is a possibility that the story could continue with Fillion.

Allan Ungar, who directed the fan movie, notes that if done properly the story could continue. He added, “I’d be thrilled to have a conversation about it and possibly see this specific story continue.”

To know that Fillion himself is such a fan of the series and would be open to playing Drake gives us some hope of seeing him take on the role in the future.

Of course, it all depends on scheduling and story ideas, but hey, they already have 15 minutes of fame. Let’s see if Fillion and Ungar can turn this into a lengthy feature film (or at least a series)!
