There’s no stopping Sony from pursuing the film adaptation of the widely-acclaimed action-adventure series by Naughty Dog.
Not the enraged fans, and certainly not the global pandemic that has interrupted most film production. Even though fans of the game are not entirely fond of the idea of possibly seeing their favorite game ruined by the good, old-fashioned Hollywood treatment, an IG post by Tom Holland confirms that there’s no going back.

In the post, the Spiderman actor has shown his 35 million followers a photo of his seat with the name ‘Nate’ on it. For the caption, the actor has written, “Day one #uncharted.”
This photo means Holland is on set, and there’s progress being made. For some, this is good news because the planning and development of this film adaptation have been brewing for the last 13 years already. However, a lot of fans can’t help but express their dismay over the project.
To begin with, the Uncharted games were already inspired by movies like Indiana Jones, and to turn things around by making a film out of it would be going too far.
Another thing that concerns fans is the casting, which they deem terrible. Playing as young Nathan Drake is Tom Holland, while Mark Wahlberg will be there to play the role of Sully, Nathan’s mentor. Antonio Banderas (probably the villain), Sophia Taylor Ali, and Tati Gabrielle are also part of the film.
Storywise, the only thing confirmed is that the film will serve as the prequel to the popular video game series. That means we’re most probably gonna get to learn the life of Nathan Drake before the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune that was released in 2007.
Uncharted is set to hit the big screen on July 16, 2021.
