Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland has signed on to play Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie. Yes, we know he seems young for the part, but that's because Sony Pictures has reconfigured the project as a prequel to the popular series of video games.
Shawn Levy is directing the film that will take its inspiration from a sequence in the third iteration of the video game franchise that focused on the young thief Drake, and his first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan.
Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman apparently decided to rework the film after watching the final cut of Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming. A new writer will be brought in to draft a script for the film which will capture the popular video game protagonist as he grows into the treasure hunter fans have come to know and love.
Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Ari Arad will produce the film.
There is no doubt that this is a very bold move on the part of the studio, so here's hoping it's one that will pay off and be a hit with critics and fans alike.
