Uncharted: Ambushed Fan Film

"Here we go again." We have yet to feature this fan film, so if you haven't seen it yet - here's you chance. Norwegian filmmaker Martin Sofiedal made a live-action short film based on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune the video game, which is already being adapted into a movie as we speak. His version is a live-action take on a cutscene in the game, and features some impressive work for something made on his own time. The 7-min film is called Uncharted: Ambushed starring David Owe as Drake, Caroline Glomnes Johansen as Elena, with a really stunning score by Roy Westad. Sofiedal recently visited Naughty Dog Games, creators of Uncharted, and got a write up in THR. The film is worth a watch, even if you have seen it before. Enjoy!

Original description from YouTube: "This a Norwegian/Danish shortfilm based on the very first cutscene in the Playstation game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. We worked very hard on this and we are very proud of the result, and we hope fellow Uncharted fans will like as much as we did making it." The live-action fan film is directed by Martin Sofiedal (his website), a Norwegian film director based in Oslo, Norway. You can watch the original cutscene from the game here on YouTube for comparison. This was first released a few months back, and has already brought Sofiedal quite a bit of attention. The actual Uncharted movie in development at Sony Pictures is being directed by Seth Gordon for release in June of 2016. More excited?

This was incredibly well done! They even nailed his fighting style from the first one.

I usually hate fan films, but this was actually pretty cool. Nice to see fellow Norwegians getting some success too.

Yea...this is one of the few video game adaptions that could be very very successful. Has that indiana jones feel to for the next generation of people (those who haven't seen the Indy series...which you'd be surprised are a lot).
