The Uncharted movie has had a long and rather sordid history, but the movie’s cast and crew were finally solidified earlier this year. That said, questions remained, with many zeroing in on the movie’s star as a bone of contention – would Tom Holland be able to pull off a convincing Nathan Drake? Even a young version? Well, it seems the answer is yes!
Today Holland shared a first picture of him in-costume, and while I’m sure opinions will vary, I’d definitely say he looks the part of a 20-something Nathan Drake. Sure, he still looks younger than video game Nathan Drake, but that character was already in his 40s. My fear was Holland’s Drake would look like a skinny high-schooler, and that’s clearly not the case.

The Uncharted movie stars Holland, Mark Wahlberg as Sully, Sophia Taylor Ali as Chloe Frazer, and Antonio Banderas and Tati Gabrielle in unspecified roles. The movie will be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Venom), and written by the team of Art Marcum and Matt Halloway (Iron Man, Punisher: War Zone). Not a bad lineup of talent.

The Uncharted movie is currently slated for a July 2021 release, although, of course, that could change given the current state of the world. What do you think? Are you looking forward to the Uncharted movie? Or will it succumb to the video game movie curse like all the others?
