Uncharted, the popular action-adventure game series is being adapted into a movie, and Spiderman’s Tom Holland is starring in it. When asked about the film in Vanity Fair‘s Podcast “Little Gold Men”, Holland compared his character to if Indiana Jones and James Bond had a baby. This is interesting, considering in the past Holland has stated how he would like to play James Bond in a movie one day.
Holland also spoke about how difficult his part was to film: “It was an amazing experience. It was actually much more of a challenge than I thought it would be. It’s a very, very different type of franchise movie to what I’m used to… Playing Peter Parker kind of feels like playing a version of myself, only a little bit younger, and playing Nathan Drake is playing someone who I am very much not, and obviously older than myself”.
The original video game series follows Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who travels the globe uncovering historical mysteries. The film will feature a younger Drake, portrayed by Holland, which means the film is a bit of a prequel to the games. Along with Holland, Mark Wahlberg will play Drake’s mentor Sully and Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) will direct. The film has a current release date of July 16th, 2021, and hopefully there will be no more delays.
