Oh S**t! Uncharted Movie To Film In Four Weeks, Inspired By Fourth Game

I…I think this might actually happen, guys. I mean maybe possibly. I’m almost hesitant to believe anything that’s being said, but it sounds like this could actually happen. What am I talking about? The Crow? The Sandman? Spawn? No, today, I’m talking about Uncharted, one of the many other films that Hollywood won’t let die. Like all the others I’ve listed off, this is one of those movies that just can’t gain any traction, yet seems to have an eternal life at the developmental stage.

Most recently, Travis Knight took a bow as the sixth director to sign on to the video game adaptation, but bailed due to…reasons, I guess? As of this writing, Venom’s Ruben Fleischer was pegged as the top contender for the job at Sony, but there has been no indication that he has actually taken on the role. Apparently, that hasn’t stopped the film from moving right along.

Speaking with IGN while promoting Onward, star Tom Holland stated that they would be shooting the movie in four weeks. That stemmed from a question about what his favorite video game was, which Holland answered perfectly, given his attachment to the franchise.

“If I’m honest, one of my favorite video games ever is the fourth Uncharted game… Unbelievable. And lots of the inspiration from the film has come from that game in particular,” Holland said. “It was interesting, when I sat down with [Sony Pictures Chairman] Tom Rothman and we were talking about video games, and I was like “Oh, I’ve just finished Uncharted.” And he was like “Well, why don’t you play Nathan Drake?” I remember being like, “I would do anything to play Nathan Drake. Please, that would be amazing.” So yeah, we start shooting in like four weeks. Mark Wahlberg is going to be amazing as Sully. The stunt department that we have out there in Berlin have done an amazing job already, prepping the stunts, and it’s going to be an exciting one.”

Also of note is the comment that they will be pulling inspiration from the fourth game in the Uncharted franchise. But what aspects would they be pulling from that game? That, of course, remains to be seen. At the very least, we expect they’ll be pulling from Nathan Drake’s past, especially given how young Tom Holland looks (and is).
