Due to his uncanny resemblance to Uncharted‘s main protagonist, Nathan Drake, actor Nathan Fillion has long been the odds-on fan favorite to star in the Uncharted film adaptation. Today, the chances of that happening jumped dramatically. Fillion, well-known for his prominent roles in film, television, and gaming, posted on Instagram a cryptic tease of his potential role as Nathan Drake in the forthcoming Uncharted feature-length movie.
The layered tease is reigniting speculation that Fillion will indeed assume the role of Nathan Drake if and when the adaptation eventually enters production. The actor posted a grainy shot of rapper Drake with a slight wink, captioned “Sic Parvis Magna. 7/16/18.” The Latin phrase translates to “Greatness From Small Beginnings,” which could hint at his ambition to be a part of one of modern gaming’s most respected franchises. More importantly though, the phrase is found inscribed on Nathan Drake’s ring from the Uncharted games, which he took from the historical English explorer Sir Francis Drake.
The Uncharted movie’s road to production hasn’t exactly been a smooth one. Early word of its existence began circulating way back in 2010, with Mark Wahlberg taking on the role of Nathan Drake. Eight years later, the project is on its fourth and current director, Joe Carnahan. Further, as Wahlberg is now unlikely to be playing Drake, it’s unclear who, if anyone, has been chosen for the role.
