Firefly’s Alan Tudyk has revealed why he decided to leave a role that he was initially cast in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Tudyk was interviewed by IGN where he explained his short and brief experience working on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and why he eventually decided to walk away from the project.
Tudyk pretty much explained the script changes and altered management in Naughty Dog’s higher ups is why he decided to leave the project. He said: “I liked it… they… ummm… they fired… ummm… [lets out a massive sigh] I left, I quit! [laughs] So, I didn’t like it. I mean, I left because they decided to go a different way with it and so when they did that“.
Tudyk even said he did not make friends with Naughty Dog, but made other friends with the same people that left the project like he did too. Although he doesn’t want to be so negative about the experience, but he’s kind of happy that he left. His biggest role now is being cast in 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
If people remember, Naughty Dog changed a lot of staff while making Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The most shocking departure was that of Amy Hennig who wrote the previous games’ stories. It was pretty much The Last of Us side of Naughty Dog that came in and took over development for the game.
