After years and years in development, the Uncharted movie is finally almost here, and you can see the final trailer ahead of the film’s imminent release.
Those of you who have followed the progress of the upcoming Uncharted movie will know it has taken an age to make it to the screen. Over a decade of development has seen a host of directors come and go, with filmmakers as varied as David O Russell, Joe Carnahan, Dan Trachtenberg, Travis Knight, Shawn Levy and Seth Gordon all said to be involved at some point.
However, it wasn’t until Zombieland‘s Reuben Fleischer came on board that the project finally made it into production.
The film will follow a younger version of Nathan Drake than we know from the PlayStation games source material, with Tom Holland portraying the adventurer at least ten years younger than the character from the game series. Mark Wahlberg, a perennial casting contender for Drake himself whilst the film languished in development hell, will play his mentor, Sully, whilst Antonio Banderas, Tati Gabrielle and Sophia Ali also feature.
Uncharted is scheduled to be with us on February 18th, and marks what Sony is hoping is the first success in a string of adaptations from its PlayStation Productions film division, including a movie version of its samurai action epic, Ghost Of Tsushima and a TV adaptation of the post-apocalyptic survival horror, The Last of Us.
Holland may be riding high on the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, and there are many fans out there who might advocate that he’s the best Peter Parker yet, but his casting as a reimagined, younger version of the worldly yet charismatic Nathan Drake, still doesn’t have everybody convinced. Maybe this trailer will persuade those still on the fence – that, or you can see the full film next month…
