Tom Holland has already found his way to another potential franchise.
We have confirmed that the Spider-Man: Homecoming lead is attached to star as treasure hunter Nathan Drake in Sony’s adaptation of the Uncharted video game series. Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum) is directing.
If you’re familiar at all with Uncharted, you’ve probably noticed that Holland is quite a bit younger than Nathan Drake as he’s portrayed in most of the games. Word is that the film will take inspiration from Uncharted 3 and depict Drake’s younger years, including his first encounter with his future mentor, Sullivan.
You can watch a bit of the younger Drake below:
Uncharted has been in on-again, off-again development for years, in various iterations. Recently, though, it got a serious boost when Levy signed on to direct.
If Holland closes his deal, that should give Uncharted even more momentum. The young British actor wowed Marvel fans in Captain America: Civil War and is poised to become one of the biggest breakouts of this summer thanks to Spider-Man: Homecoming.
