Uncharted Movie Gets Tom Holland As Nathan Drake

Uncharted Movie Gets Tom Holland As Nathan Drake. Have They Even Played The Game?

It could be argued that one of the main reasons why movies based on games don’t succeed is because the filmmakers aren’t gamers themselves or they don’t understand what makes the characters great. Now, as a case in point, Tom Holland has been cast as Nathan Drake in an upcoming Uncharted movie.

It’s somewhat surprising news really, but it seems Nathan Drake will be de-aged for the upcoming Sony-produced film. Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland will play the young adventurer, instead of fan favourites Nathan Fillion and Mark Wahlberg.

Directed by Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Date Night), it seems that Sony is planning to create they franchise as a prequel to the Naughty Dog video game for PlayStation instead of a cinematic version of the already existing world. It will focus on Drake’s younger years as a thief and his first encounter with Sullivan, aka Sully.

According to Deadline, Sony Pictures boss Tom Rothman is to blame. Clearly, he has never played the game before. Clearly, he has no idea who or what Nathan Drake is supposed to be. Fans will be bitterly disappointed.

    Maybe they just played that in stage where you play as young nathan drake, and they think that’s what the whole series is like…

    Nathan Fillion would have been perfect but at 46 he’s a bit too old to play Nate. That being said, I feel like he practically already played Nate in Firefly

    Don’t stress guys, by the time this film comes out, Tom Holland will be old enough to play the mature version of Drake.

    He should play all the games to get the feel for the person he is playing it’s called knowing who your playing so u don’t mess it up

    Or maybe. They don’t want to mess up an already amazing story so they want to go before the game so some retards here don’t complain about them messing up an amazing game
