Early last year came “Uncharted,” the long-gestating adaptation of the acclaimed and popular PlayStation video game series.

Many attempts had been made to adapt the property over the years with different filmmakers and actors involved before we got the version we did with “Venom” helmer Ruben Fleischer directing whilst Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg took on the Nathan Drake and Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan roles respectively.

The results were a mixed bag. The movie performed well, grossing $400 million worldwide on a reported $120 million budget and scoring quite well in audience polls. Critics and fans of the games, however, weren’t so impressed with mixed/poor reviews.

Now Wahlberg, whose casting was one of the more contentious elements, was out promoting “The Family Plan” this week and revealed that not only is a sequel in development, but a script has already been written. He tells The Direct:

“I’ve heard lots of different ideas. I know somebody’s written a script, and they’re still working on it, and it would consist of having the moustache the whole entire time. Which completely makes sense; obviously, in that final scene, I have the moustache.

I spent quite a bit of time growing it because, at one point, we tried to do it with a fake moustache, and, I don’t know. I just don’t have the confidence to pull it off.

When I finally got the moustache, people really appreciated it. And it was a nice tag to the end of that film. So if we can make it better than the first, you know, I’d be open to it, but I only know as much as you do right now.”

The final film’s list of writers included Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway, and it’s unclear if any are involved with the sequel.

Both actors are still several years younger than their game counterparts, who are aged 31 and 58, respectively, when we meet them in the first game (Holland is currently 27 and Wahlberg 52), so both actors aren’t going to age out of their roles anytime soon.
