Nathan Fillion stars in a almost ideal Uncharted fan film

Nathan Fillion finally gets the chance to play Nathan Drake in an Uncharted short and it's everything fans have wanted

Because sometimes dreams really do come true, Nathan Fillion just made his wise-cracking, peril-escaping debut as Nate Drake, the star of the Uncharted video game series.

The 15-minute movie, from director Brian Ungar, has a slick style, classic Uncharted witty quips and some surprising moments that feel lifted straight from the minds of the game series writers. As the video proceeds, we realize this is all part of Drake's plan (well, Elena and Scully's), as he needed to infiltrate their compound to acquire historical records leading to a much bigger treasure.

Drake is nothing without his stalwart mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan, who's played here by none other than Stephen Lang of Avatar and Terra Nova fame.

She admits swaying more towards men for friendship and realises she "might have to tread on some toes at this point". Whoever they don't pick must decide whether to stick together and leave, or break-up and stay on the show.

This film has zero involvement from Sony or Naughty Dog - who are now preparing their own prequel film, starring Tom Holland and directed by Stranger Things' Shawn Levy - but it does manage to surpass a lot of video game adaptations in that it is actually super enjoyable.

In his announcement of the video, Fillion offered thanks and gratitude for all involved, but he didn't go so far as to suggest that Naughty Dog or Sony had anything to do with the production-or that this video would build toward a future collaboration.

The film seems to have captured the same fantastic combo of action and humor as the Uncharted games themselves.

Fillion was equally as happy, explaining that a proper Uncharted film was something he had wanted to see - regardless of his own involvement for a "long time". Because life is also cruel and often unfair, Fillion's performance is completely unofficial and unaffiliated from Naughty Dog or Sony, taking place in a 15-minute fan-film directed by Allan Ungar and written by Ungar and Jesse Wheeler. Thank you fans, for your excellent taste. "You know who you are", he continued.
