A movie based upon Naughty Dog’s “Uncharted” series is still moving forward and will likely be director Shawn Levy’s next project.
“We now have a very good script and we have our star in Tom Holland,” Levy added. “That is now subject to schedule and additional casting. But I would say as of right now, that seems to be the most near horizon.
“And it’s a movie I’m very excited about.”
Sony’s held the film rights to “Uncharted” for several years, evolving through many different crew and cast teams until Spider-Man star Tom Holland was announced as the adventure movie’s lead last year.
It’s thought the movie will act as a prequel to Nathan Drake’s story, with Holland appearing as a younger version of the Drake we know from the game series.
Last month, director Allan Ungar teamed up with actor Nathan Fillion to make an incredible 15-minute “Uncharted” fan film, complete with a fully realized combat scene and Drake’s characteristic wisecracks.
