Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg in ‘UNCHARTED’ New Look Is Out Now

Sony Pictures Entertainment and its PlayStation-powered sister, Sony Interactive, are finally working together to transform PlayStation games into mass-appeal movies and television series, after years of inertia and botched starts. Sony Pictures now has ten game adaptations in development, up from almost none in 2018. “Uncharted,” a $120 million adventure based on a 14-year-old PlayStation IP, is one of them (more than 40 million copies sold). Nathan Drake, the treasure seeker at the core of the game franchise, is played by Tom Holland, the reigning Spider-Man. It will be released in cinemas on February 18th.

Since 2008, when producer Avi Arad first began working with Sony to bring the games to life on the big screen, production on an Uncharted film has been in the works. After years of wrangling with a slew of filmmakers and screenwriters, including David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, Shawn Levy, Dan Trachtenberg, and Travis Knight, the film finally found a home with Ruben Fleischer. While the current Spider-Man star signed on for the primary role in early 2017, Wahlberg, who was initially slated as Drake, would be changed to play Sully.

Though some may be unhappy to see Wahlberg’s Sully without his trademark mustache, the actor’s earlier set videos indicate that he will sport it at some point in the film, most likely toward the end when the duo approaches the timeframe of their video game counterparts. With filming on Uncharted wrapping in October, enough time has elapsed for post-production to be completed, and a trailer should be released shortly to give fans a clearer idea of what to anticipate from the movie. Beginning in December, fans will be treated to an exciting few months of Holland on the big screen, thanks to the long-awaited adaptation and the highly anticipated Spiderman: No Way Home. The film is expected in February 2022 at the cinema.
