UPDATE: Due to scheduling conflicts, director Travis Knight (Bumblebee) is no longer attached to the project. A search for a replacement is underway. Stay tuned.
A live-action adaptation of the hit video game Uncharted is coming from director Travis Knight (Bumblebee) with Tom Holland (Spiderman: Far From Home) set to star as Nathan Drake.
Originally intended as an action vehicle for Mark Wahlberg (Mile 22) back when director David O. Russell was still on-board, but when the script changed to an origin story, Holland stepped in as a younger Drake.
However, Wahlberg is still a part of the project as he is in talks to portray Victor “Sully” Sullivan, “an American treasure hunter, fortune seeker and businessman, as well as a friend, mentor and father figure to Drake.”
The film is the first official collaboration between PlayStation Productions and Sony Pictures with Charles Roven and Alex Gartner serving as producers through Atlas Entertainment, as well as Avi Arad and Ari Arad through Arad Productions. Sony’s PlayStation Productions’ head honchos Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan are executive producing.
