Tom Holland officially cast as Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted film.

Photo via Deadline

In a surprise move, Sony Pictures has just announced that they have cast actor Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming) as a young Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted film.

The hit video game Uncharted has been trying to get a film adaptation for some time now but it seems that Sony is making a big push for it now. The film is being rewritten to now be a prequel story starring a younger Nathan Drake as he grows up into the treasure hunter that fans know and love.

Directed by Shawn Levy, this new film story is being inspired by a flashback sequence in the video game Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception where gamers see a young Drake as a thief and his first encounter with Victor Sullivan, a treasure hunter and fortune seeker who would soon become a mentor and father figure to Nathan.

"This reformulation of the franchise was an inspiration of Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman after seeing the latest cut of the Spider-Man film, sources said."
Sony must have a lot of confidence in Tom Holland to not only have him as a star in another franchise but to rewrite the film to include him as the star.

Are you excited about this new direction that Uncharted is taking? What do you think about the casting of Tom Holland?

Lin-Manuel Miranda is cast as the voice of Gizmoduck in Disney XD's DuckTales.


Disney made a big announcement today by revealing that Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has been cast to voice Gizmoduck in the upcoming Disney XD show DuckTales.

Gizmoduck is also known as Fenton Crackshell-Cabrera and is a,
"brilliant young intern working for Gyro Gearloose, the personal mad scientist of Scrooge McDuck (voiced by actor David Tennant)"

From the released art for Gizmoduck and Fenton Crackshell-Cabrerea, it appears that they are staying faithful to the character's look in the original series.

I know there are a lot of people out there that are flipping out over this news and saying that now the show will be amazing but I just don't see it. To me, the show's potential hasn't gone up or down with the casting of Miranda. I'm excited to see what he brings to this role but I'm personally not flipping out.

Though I can definitely say that I am flipping out that this show is returning. I absolutely loved it when I was growing up.

DuckTales will premiere this summer on Disney XD.

Seth MacFarlane's upcoming Star Trek parody show on Fox, The Orville, looks like Galaxy Quest.


By Grabthar's hammer!! This all seems familiar. In what is an obvious parody of Star Trek and can be best described as a re-imagining of Galaxy Quest, Seth MacFarlane has teamed up with Fox for a new comedic sci-fi show that is ... well, a Star Trek parody. The upcoming show is titled The Orville and definitely looks like it will have some pretty funny moments. It'll be interesting to see MacFarlane bring his usual humor to a live action television series and how audiences will take to it. Ted was a hit so I suppose this may have a chance. The first trailer gives fans a great look at what to expect and introduces some of the show's main characters.

Show synopsis:
"From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted”) and directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book,” “Iron Man”), THE ORVILLE is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship. In the 25th century, Earth is part of the Planetary Union, a far-reaching, advanced and mostly peaceful civilization with a fleet of 3,000 ships. Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer ED MERCER (MacFarlane) finally gets his chance to command one of these ships: the U.S.S. Orville. Determined to prove his worth and write a new chapter in his life, Ed finds that task all the more difficult when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, KELLY GRAYSON (Adrianne Palicki, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Friday Night Lights”). As the new commander, Ed assembles a qualified, but eccentric crew, including his best friend, GORDON MALLOY (Scott Grimes, “ER,” “Justified”), who has problems with authority, but is the best helmsman in the fleet; DR. CLAIRE FINN (Penny Johnson Jerald, “24,” “The Larry Sanders Show”), one of the Union’s most accomplished physicians; BORTUS (Peter Macon, “Shameless,” “Bosch”), an alien from a single-sex species; ISAAC (Mark Jackson, “That Royal Today”), an artificial life-form from a machine society that thinks biological life-forms are inferior; navigator JOHN LAMARR (J. Lee, FAMILY GUY, “The Cleveland Show”), whose casual humor cuts through even the most dire situations; ALARA KITAN (Halston Sage, “Neighbors,” “Goosebumps”), a young, inexperienced security officer whose home planet’s high gravity gives her superior physical strength; and YAPHIT, a gelatinous creature voiced by comedian Norm Macdonald (“The Middle,” “Saturday Night Live”). Somehow, Ed and Kelly must put the past behind them and, with the help of the crew, navigate fascinating and sometimes dangerous adventures in outer space, as well as the tumultuous and captivating day-to-day personal relationships with their colleagues."
