The Uncharted movie has gone through the wringer since the concept became realized. From an impressive roster of changing directors to contending with a global pandemic, this gaming adaptation is one that many weren’t sure we were actually getting with Marvel’s Spider-Man’s Tom Holland playing a much younger Nathan Drake. As the film inches towards release, we’ve got a new set photo to look at to get a better idea of how Holland fits into his role.
With Mark Wahlberg playing a younger Sully and Holland taking on the role of Nathan Drake, the upcoming movie will explore a facet of the games that we’ve only gotten to see through small glimpses. With flashback scenes of a Drake in his teens and beyond, the upcoming movie will explore how this iconic character became the staple that he is in the gaming world.

For those that may have forgotten that this film is even happening, the live-action Uncharted movie follows a tale told before the games, with a young adult protagonist we’ve seen a few times throughout the franchise. This film has been hit with numerous cancellation rumors due to a constant change of hands and being stuck in development hell for several years. Luckily, it seems like it’s all pulled together with even the voice behind Drake himself giving his official seal of approval.
After a few different date changes, the Uncharted movie will arrive on February 18, 2022.
