Tom Holland is taking on another action role, but instead of a comic book character he is moving to the video game medium. Now we’ve finally gotten our first official look at Tom Holland in the new Uncharted movie to show what the actor will look like when he plays the protagonist Nathan Drake. Holland will portray a younger version of the character than Uncharted fans are used to seeing and will star in the film alongside Mark Wahlberg who plays Sully, the mentor for Nathan Drake. The Uncharted film is currently scheduled to release in theaters on July 16, 2021.
The Nathan Drake from the Uncharted games is the one people know best, so this younger take on the character will be a completely different approach to the film. There were some who had reservations about seeing this sort of version of Nathan Drake considering how many times we’ve seen the character portrayed in the games, but judging from the image shared above, Holland has the look down to play the younger Nathan Drake.
Uncharted is an action-adventure game series developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation consoles. The main series of games follows Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who travels across the world to uncover various historical mysteries. The series has been universally acclaimed and commercially successful, having shipped more than 41 million units, making it one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time. Tom Holland has proven his dexterity and agility playing Spiderman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so he is the perfect choice to play the role of Nathan Drake. The fact that he seems younger than Drake in the Uncharted games is perfect. If the movie does well critically and monetarily then there could be sequels in which case Holland could carry the role for many years to come.
As for the actors portraying the Uncharted characters, those involved with the film seem to have only positive things to say about each other, though we wouldn’t expect much else. Holland said that Wahlberg is going to be an amazing Sully, and just recently, Nathan Drake’s voice actor from the games, Nolan North, had positive things to say about Holland. He said seeing the actor was like looking in a mirror and that Holland was “crushing it” as Nathan Drake. The Uncharted movie will come to theaters on July 16, 2021, barring any more delays that push it back.

Isn’t he a bit young to play Nathan Drake? He looks about ten years younger than the way I’d pictured for the live action character.
