Tom Holland Reportedly Cast as Nathan Drake for Uncharted Movie
Spider-Man’s Tom Holland to Star as Nathan Drake
According to a new report, Spider-Man Homecoming lead, Tom Holland will portray Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted film.
Deadline reports that the young actor will play the charismatic thief in a reworked script based on the meeting of a young Drake and his mentor Sullivan which was shown in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
A film based on the Uncharted series has been in the works for quite a while with initial development beginning in mid-2008. Since then the project has gone through plenty of development issues.
This current incarnation will be produced by Charles Roven, Avi Arad and Alex Gartner with Sony Pictures looking for a new writer to draft the script.
The film will be directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum series and Real Steel) and reportedly the rewrite was inspired after Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman saw footage of Holland in the latest cut of Spider-Man Homecoming.
Holland previously starred as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War which was the character’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
You can see Holland as Peter Parker in Spider-Man Homecoming which will web its way to screens later this year on July 7th also starring Robert Downey Jr. and Michael Keaton.
