A movie for the video game ‘Uncharted’ has been in talks for years now with Mark Wahlberg aka Marky Mark once having been linked to the movie. Well, it looks like Sony Pictures is finally pushing through with the project… and their choice for Nathan Drake doesn’t look anything like Mark Wahlberg at all. No, instead, they’ve decided to go for none other than the new Spider-Man himself: Tom Holland!
Clearly, this means that they will no longer be following the story of adult Nathan Drake, but of a younger Nathan Drake. The movie is said to be based on the flashback seen in ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’ where Nathan first meets his mentor.
While this may not have been how we first envisioned the ‘Uncharted’ movie to go, we’re definitely not complaining. For starters, Tom Holland proved to be a great choice for Spider-Man, so who’s to say he won’t be a great choice for Nathan Drake, as well? Plus, he is physically fit to take on the role (have you seen him dance or do parkour yet?). Besides, it would be nice to see him in another role other than Peter Parker, so that he doesn’t get typecast early on in his career.
What about you? Do you think Tom will be able to do the role justice?
