We all know the big screen adaptation of Uncharted is unlikely to ever come out, but Spider-Man star Tom Holland – who’s still currently signed on to play a younger incarnation of Nathan Drake – has heaped praise on the script all the same. Speaking with IGN, the British actor said: “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.”

He continued: “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.”

We have seen snippets of Drake’s past in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but we suspect the movie will centre on the sharp mouthed adventurer’s inaugural adventures with Sully – especially with Mark Wahlberg signed up to play the moustachioed lothario. Of course, the producers will need to find a new director, after it lost its sixth (!) a few months back.
