The Cast for Uncharted the Movie
The first image of the movie was released by Tom Holland on Twitter who plays the role of Nathan Drake the main character. He sure does look good in a young Indiana Jones-Esque attire which indicates that the Uncharted movie is filled with action and adventure for us.
Other than Holland, Mark Wahlberg will portray the treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan, who acts as a mentor to the main character Drake. Dan Trachtenberg who was the previous director, until Travis Knight took over said that Tom Holland’s character is not as young as fans can assume him to be quoting “he might be a bit older in a way you realize. This is Nathan and Scully’s first adventure way before the first game”.
Other cast members include Truth or Dare’s Sophia Taylor Ali who is rumored to be cast as Chloe Frazer, who was introduced in the game Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and led the spin-off of the game Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The games indicate that Frazer had a romantic past with Drake, but the movie could show.
Antonio Banderas will play a key role as the reported villain in the movie There is no word that Banderas’ character previously appeared in the games so it could be an original creation by the writers. Another cast members include Tati Gabrielle who plays an unknown character in the movie.
The movie is led by characters considerably younger than the video game as it is a said prequel to the game series before the first game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
The movie which is all set to release will be the first for Sony. PlayStation Productions is a Sony subsidiary that signed to produce the Uncharted movie. The studio previously produced the 2014 animated film Heavenly Sword and Ratchet and Clank in 2016 for a digital release. Uncharted is the studio’s first project for a worldwide theatrical series.
