Columbia Pictures has unveiled the first-look images its upcoming action adventure Uncharted, adapted from the massively popular PlayStation/Naughty Dog video game franchise.
Get your first look at Tom Holland as the young Nathan Drake and other iconic images in the stills below.
In his interview with Collider.com, Holland revealed the narrative thrust of the movie adaptation. Rather than retelling one of the games’ storylines, this Uncharted will give us a Nathan Drake origin story.
“I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games,” Holland says. “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.”
It’s been quite a long journey for the movie. From its early beginnings in 2008 when interest/curiosity about the popular game turning into a movie to the series of developments that have seen various drafts of scripts to directors being signed on and then leaving the project.
Over the years, despite not having a clear director or cast for the film, the studio was set on pushing through with the movie back in 2016. The initial filming schedule in 2017 was subsequently moved after more changes in the director until Ruben Fleischer entered the picture in January 2020.
Filming wrapped up in October 2020.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer, the movie also stars Mark Wahlberg as Victor Sullivan. The screenplay is by Rafe Judkins, Joe Carnahan, Art Marcum and Matthew Hollaway. The producers are Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, Charles Roven and Ari Arad.
Only in Philippine cinemas 2021, Uncharted will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Connect with #UnchartedMovie and tag columbiapicph
