It’s been revealed by Tom Holland that the Uncharted movie will break the video game movie curse which is something we’ve been waiting for for ages.
Holland will be playing Nathan Drake in the movie which has been in post-production for a long time. Since 2008 to be exact.
The movie’s lost of a lot of directors and Venom and Zombieland director, Ruben Fleischer is now believed to be helming the project.
It’s rumoured that he’s working off a script from Joe Carnahan who was at one point attached to direct the movie.
Tom Holland was talking to IGN about the movie recently and that was when he promised the Uncharted movie would break the video game movie curse.
Holland explained: “I think what Uncharted offers that most video game 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.”

Some people may read that statement and think, “But what about Detective Pikachu and Sonic The Hedgehog?”
Those movies were pretty good, but still not great.
Holland’s promising the Uncharted film will be the first genuinely good video game movie.
This has got me in the mood to see the film, which I’ve been looking forward to watching for a while.
The Uncharted movie will also star Mark Wahlberg as Victor “Sully” Sullivan, which I think is pretty interesting casting.
What do you make of this? Are you looking forward to the Uncharted movie?
