Marvel Superhero Cast as Nathan Drake in Upcoming Uncharted Movie
The Uncharted movie has been talked about for quite some time, but without really going anywhere. As of late, the project has seemingly picked up a bit of traction as it found its director in Shawn Levy last year, and it was revealed back in January that the script for the film had been completed. The only things left to do are assemble a cast and shoot the motion picture! Well, and do a million other tasks that go into making a movie. However, one less thing will have to be done now that Sony has found their youthful Nathan Drake in a young Marvel superhero. In fact, he’ll likely have a great time swinging into the role.

Tom Holland, the latest actor to don the title as Spider-Man, has signed on to play a young Nathan Drake in the upcoming film adaptation of the wildly popular video game franchise. The casting may seem a bit odd considering Holland is very young, but the Uncharted movie will serve as a prequel to the first game, which means it will have to feature a young Drake – so the casting makes a bit more sense in that light. After seeing the recent cut of the new Spider-Man movie, someone at Sony decided it would be best to reconfigure the Uncharted project, and thus bringing in a younger protagonist. The film will also likely be drawing inspiration from the time gamers saw Nathan meet Sully in Uncharted 3.
The long-awaited Uncharted film has found its director and star, the script is finished, and it will R-rated. That’s about all there is to know at this point, but with the announcement of Tom Holland signing on to play a young Nathan Drake, more is sure to follow in the near future. You can catch Tom as the titular hero in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, which is set to swing into theaters on July 7. Stay tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as more is released on the Uncharted movie.
