Riding high on the back of Spider-Man: No Way Home which is shaping up to be a smash-hit, Sony and Tom Holland aren’t done together yet. Sony wasted no time in getting a trailer out for Uncharted, while Holland is so hot right now.
Uncharted is the first movie adaption of the famous PlayStation video games. In the movie, Holland plays a much younger version of the treasure hunter Nathan Drake and the movie will serve as an origin story. Mark Wahlberg co-stars as Nathan’s mentor Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan.
Antonio Banderas, Tati Gabrielle and Sophia Ali co-star.
The movie entered development in 2008, with famous producer Avi Arad stating that he would be working with Sony Pictures to develop a film adaptation of Uncharted, but the film entered a complicated production process, with various directors, writers, and cast members attached at various points.
Several filmmakers, including David O. Russell, Dan Trachtenberg, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, Shawn Levy, and Travis Knight were initially signed to direct the project, while Nathan Fillion, Chris Pratt, and Wahlberg were rumored to play Drake. Holland was cast in May 2017 and principal photography commenced in March 2020, finishing the following October.
The first trailer was released at the end of October and this new trailer is clearly meant to push the ties to the video game series more closely.
