Uncharted movie is now a prequel and will star Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake

This kid is going places

It’s no secret Sony has been jiggering around with their adaptation of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series, but now it sounds like they’ve found a direction. Tom Holland, of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” fame, will star as a young Nathan Drake in an adaptation of the flashback sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception where Nathan meets Sully. 

According to Deadline, this new direction was set in place after seeing a cut of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which bodes well for Sony Pictures’ confidence in both franchises (even going so far as to cast Tom Hardy as Venom as a branch of the universe). 

There’s no writer attached at the moment, but Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Real Steel) is set to direct.
