Tom Holland Cast as Nathan Drake in UNCHARTED

Thanks to Deadline.com, we have new info on the upcoming movie adaptation of the Uncharted series, including it’s star and the new direction the movie is heading in.According to Deadline, after Sony Pictures Chief Tom Rothman saw an early cut of the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, he was inspired to reformulate the Franchise into something of a prequel, with the main inspiration possible being the flashback sequences shown in Uncharted 3 and 4, which shows a young Nathan Drake before becoming the renowned and infamous treasure hunter in the games. maxresdefault.jpgWith this new development in the Uncharted film, it seems that Director Joe Carnahan’s version of the script is no longer being used, and a new writer is being sought out. This is, in my opinion, a disappointing development, as Carnahan’s developments on the film were exciting ones, showing the dedication to source material, as he met with the creators of the game and the star, Nolan North. It was also previously reported that Carnahan wrote the script as an R rated film with “crazy action sequences”, something that is a staple of the video game franchise. Now, with these new developments, it seems that is no longer the case.Uncharted3YoungDrake.jpgWith a younger version of Nathan Drake taking the spotlight, a younger star is needed. As previously noted, this whole change to the film was made after the Sony Pictures Chief saw an early cut of the newest Spider-Man film. Rothman must have been very impressed with Tom Holland, because he has now been cast as a Young Nathan Drake.

It will be interesting to see how the film plays out from this point, with a new and Rising Star at the forefront as Nathan Drake, and Shawn Levy still attached to direct. Tom Holland is certainly a talented actor, so his performance as Nathan Drake in a Uncharted film is sure to be an interesting one. – Ernesto Valenzuela
