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.
