UNCHARTED – FROM VIDEO GAME TO MOVIE IN THE NEW FEATURETTE

The Naughty Dog videogame saga from which Uncharted is based is characterized by a great “cinematic” showmanship.

The sense that Neil Druckman and the other authors wanted to create a game inspired by the Hollywood summer blockbusters. With these premises, the new featurette published by Sony Pictures turns out to be quite interesting.

The protagonist Tom Holland and Druckman himself talk about the characteristics they wanted to translate on the big screen, such as the puzzles to be overcome and the personality of Nathan Drake . However, it is an original story, which tells the genesis of the famous adventurer, and both Holland and Druckman are delighted that the film offers his own version of the franchise.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer ( Zombieland, Venom ), after the departures of David O. Russell , Neil Burger , Shawn Levy , Dan Trachtenberg and Travis Knight . The Italian release is expected on February 17th . I remind you of the Facebook page and the Instagram profile of the film.

The release is expected on February 17th in Italian cinemas. You can see the featurette below.

The cast

The cast includes Tom Holland ( Nathan Drake ), Mark Wahlberg ( Sully ), Antonio Banderas , Sophia Ali ( Chloe Frazer ) and Tati Gabrielle ( Braddock ).

The young Nathan Drake

Tom Holland will lend his face to a young Nathan Drake , the protagonist of an entirely new storyline, never told in video games. In fact, it will be an origin story: we will find out how Nathan met his great friend and mentor Victor Sullivan , aka Sully , and we will see him evolve into a treasure hunter. Last year, Charles Roven explained the nature of the project:

We made up a wonderful origin story, but it’s still based on the Uncharted video game . It does not take place during any of the video game time frames. It’s actually set when Nathan Drake and Sully – who I think can be called his paternal surrogate – were much younger. It’s an origin story that evolves from video games, but it’s not directly drawn from them.

The screenplay

The first Uncharted script was written by Joe Carnahan , but the current version of the script bears the signatures of Art Marcum , Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins .
