    i have a bad feeling that this is gonna get fucked up really quick...

    as expected people are already stacking up fan ideas of who should play who. but the sad part, and the part that will ultimately bring this movie to Max Payne, Hitman, Bloodrayne level, is that the original Voice cast will probably not be recast as the movie actors...

    http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=uncharteddf&thread.id=51234

    from a normal video game perspective this doesnt sound like a big issue? why would you want "voice" actors doing really acting...? problem is Uncharteds voice acting methods are different then other games.

    Skip to 1:58 and watch for about 2mins
    [y]uEZzV5Wl97c[/y]

    as you can see each scene is mocapped by the voice actor at the same time they are recording the voice so that it feels more natural. this has a lot to do with why the game was so popular becasue it felt so cinematic, as well as nathan drake was such a likeble character becasue hes just a normal guy. all of the voice actors are actually film and stage actors so doing voice acting for some was new, thus meaning that doing a uncharted movie would actually feel more at home to some of them?

    So if the reason we like uncharted so much is the characters what happens when we replace them... it falls apart. Nolan North (drakes voice and mocap) essentially created all of drakes personality, his posture, his mannerisms, his personality and his charm. when you see Drake duck behind a barrel and say "oh crap" nolan is literally doing that on a stage. so goes for any other character in the game.

    so lets say they took the story and characters out of uncharted, then what do you have... well actually you still have a pretty good shooting and platforming game, it wouldnt be a total loss, but would it be nearly as good...? now lets make a movie, so gameplay is out, and lets not use the cast, so the characters are out.. whats left? a Franchise name... yes i understand this what they do with so many other games but the differences here is the characters we not animated by a computer or a stuntman, with the voice phoned in on sunday for drake and thrusday for elena...

    each character (voice/motion) was created by one person, on a set, with the other characters in the scene, like a movie... and each person deserves the right to portray that same character that made the franchise what it is, on the big screen in costume instead of a mocap suit.

    otherwise this movie will end up in the bargain bin right next to Max Payne, Bloodrayne, Hitman, Street Fighter, Silent Hill, and Mario Brothers....

    if they actually recast the games talent and get a good script this could actually be a fantastic movie... but this is hollywood were talking about and they are gonna fuck it up as they uselly do :o

    I was soo wiggin out during those vids.. the mo-cap actors pretty much are nathan, elena ect it's creepy. They should just cast them but this is hollywood Tom cruise will get the role or some shit.

    Nolan North can easily be replaced by Nathan Fillion :dunno: His Firefly character was very Nathan Drake-like... my GF and I thought Fillion was Drake's voice actor on my first playthough of Uncharted.

    Like I said in the previous thread, this is a game that DOESN'T need a movie adaptation. Fuck Hollywood... they need to write some original screenplays instead of trying to adapt every already-existing story into a freaking movie.

    Ya but why fix something that isnt broken? :dunno:

    and

    exactly becasue its basicly a movie as it is.

    However, if you get a good script and recast the talent it could be awesome even to non video game movie standards. god i REALLY REALLY REALLY how some one at sony thinks like us... :hs:

    it'll be rated pg-13, and it'll probably suck.

    hell, even if it's rated r it will probably suck, since that's indicative of being a video-game-turned-movie :(

    Wait what? Why wouldn't they use the actors that did the voice acting? That's just retarded because they actually hired ACTORS not just voice actors. They did all the scenes with motion capture and audio recording at the same time so that it came across more realistically. The original actors already have the voice, they know how they would act, AND they know how they move and interact with each other better than anyone else... Well I'm in for the movie regardless but I think that's a poor move on their part, not using the same people.

    its about a treasure hunter, its action adventure summer blockbuster, average joe hero, uselly with some wacky plot twist, a love interest and a side kick.... i could go on but seriously how do you think it doesnt have any simalaritys to indy? or even tomb raider? :ugh:

    Well last time I checked TR has a women protagonist and Indy got raped in Peru. Since Uncharted doesn't have either your point is fail? :hsugh:
