Uncharted adaptation shouldn't look like video games

Nolan North, the actor who voices Nathan Drake in the Uncharted video game series, claims he doesn't want an exact adaptation for the upcoming movie.

After more than a decade in development, the adaptation of the popular action-adventure video game from Uncharted finally has a release date: July 16, 2021. The film, which focuses on treasure hunter Nathan Drake, will star Tom holland, while Mark Wahlberg will bring to life his faithful father / mentor figure, Victor “Sully” Sullivan.

As Tom Holland previously revealed, the Uncharted movie will focus on Drake's origin story, something that none of the four games in the series have fully explored. Which means it won't be a completely faithful adaptation, and while that may bother some fans, at least one person who has been involved in the series over the years is happy with that.

The experience in a video game is totally different from watching a movie.

In a new recent interview, Nolan North, who is voiced by Drake in the original version of the Uncharted video games, said he doesn't think the upcoming movie is an exact adaptation. Citing the immersive nature of Uncharted for gamers, North noted that games already have cinematic elements and that those elements are largely player-controlled.

“If they were going to do a thing that copied what already exists, which, once again, I don't think is a very good idea for video games, because Uncharted is a movie and you are the star of this game. You are the star of that movie because you are Nathan Drake, not me. It is my voice, it is my movements, but you are Nathan Drake. You make the decision to jump, run, fall off a cliff, like me, whatever. ”
