Tom Holland Cast as Nathan Drake in Upcoming Uncharted Movie

Spider-Man to be Nathan Drake too!

Deadline reported that Spider-Man Tom Holland will be Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie.

The new movie will now be focusing on the sequences seen in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception where a young Nathan first encounters his mentor Sullivan, meaning it will be a prequel to the video game series.  It might also feature elements from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End where we get to see a young Nathan Drake as well.

The casting decision was made by Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman where he was impressed by Holland’s performance in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Stranger Things director Shawn Levy is still attached to the project, but a new screenwriter is requested.

Uncharted film as a long and complicated history.  The film has gone through multiple directors, writers and actors.  This is the first time the project seems solid at all, and hopefully Holland can fit it into his busy schedule.
