Uncharted movie is now a prequel and will star Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake


It’s no secret Sony has been jiggering around with their adaptation of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series, but now it sounds like they’ve found a direction. Tom Holland, of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” fame, will star as a young Nathan Drake in an adaptation of the flashback sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception where Nathan meets Sully. 

According to Deadline, this new direction was set in place after seeing a cut of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which bodes well for Sony Pictures’ confidence in both franchises (even going so far as to cast Tom Hardy as Venom as a branch of the universe). 

There’s no writer attached at the moment, but Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Real Steel) is set to direct.
