Tom Holland has been cast as Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie.
According to Deadline, the film has been “redrafted as a prequel to the treasure hunting action story line in the Naughty Dog video game for PlayStation.” They go on to say that the film is based on a sequence from the third video game that “focused on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan.”
The Uncharted film has been in development since 2009. A lot of actors, directors, and writers have been attached to the project at one point or another.
It seems Holland’s role as the new Spider-Man is what inspired Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman to reposition the Uncharted film as a prequel.
