Vi ved allerede at skuespilleren Tom Holland kommer til at spille Nathan Drake i den kommende Uncharted-film, og han kommer desuden til at spille en yngre udgave af karakteren, som vist ikke er så mærkeligt, skuespillerens alder taget i betragtning. Men selvom Drake er yngre, så drager filmen inspiration fra et spil hvor han er ældre.
I et interview med IGN fortæller Tom Holland, at filmens primære inspiration er fra Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, og at filmen vil have et "global scope".
"If I'm honest, one of my favorite video games ever is the fourth Uncharted game... Unbelievable. And lots of the inspiration from the film has come from that game in particular. It was interesting, when I sat down with [Sony Pictures Chairman] Tom Rothman and we were talking about video games, and I was like "Oh, I've just finished Uncharted." And he was like "Well, why don't you play Nathan Drake?" I remember being like, "I would do anything to play Nathan Drake. Please, that would be amazing." So yeah, we start shooting in like four weeks. Mark Wahlberg is going to be amazing as Sully. The stunt department that we have out there in Berlin have done an amazing job already, prepping the stunts, and it's going to be an exciting one."
Det lader altså til at produktionen endelig går i gang nu.
