It has been almost four years since the latest Uncharted game with Nathan Drake. And even if the future of this franchise is vague, fans hope to see their favourite treasure hunter on the big screen soon.
It seems that Tom Holland, who will take on the role of young Nate, feels positive about the upcoming film. In his recent interview with IGN, the actor shares his thoughts on a recent script:
“I read the newest draft of the script on the way over here and it’s one of the best scripts I’ve ever read. It really, really jumps off the page”.Tom Holland
Films based on video games don’t tend to have a good reputation. From Angry Birds to Resident Evil, the film industry seems to be consistently missing the mark with video game IPs. But Tom Holland is sure that this time it will be different:
“I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games. So, if you played the games, you haven’t seen what’s going to happen in the film. And if you haven’t played the games, you’re going to enjoy the film because it’s information that everyone else is getting at the same time. But I’m super excited to make that movie and it’s been a long time coming”.Tom Holland
A Tough Beginning
But there is still a long way to go for Uncharted movie. It already had a bumpy road with six directors coming and going. Sony hopes for Ruben Fleischer, director of Venom and Zombieland, to join the project, but it is yet to be confirmed.
We really hope that this project will be back on track soon. And, fingers crossed, Uncharted movie won’t join the line of disappointing interpretations of video game franchises.
