We know that Sony Pictures had an Uncharted movie in their sights already after the success of the first episode.
Around 2008, but the project has been postponed and reworked a thousand times, until the final version with Tom Holland protagonist, which revealed how discovered the saga: on the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
I’m a huge fan of the saga video games. I didn’t find them until I shot Spider-Man: Homecoming. One of the luxuries of making Spider-Man movies is that they are made by Sony, and one of the luxuries of working with Sony is the PlayStation and therefore all the actors’ trailers are stocked with the best TVs and the latest PlayStation, and one of the games they gave me was Uncharted. In making these films it happens to have to wait up to four hours for all the preparations to be made with lights, cameras etc. so my best friend and I, while we were shooting Spider-Man 1, we started playing the series. And as soon as we started, we never finished it anymore. I remember they were trying to recover me from the trailer to get back to the set and I was like, “No, no, no, I’m about to finish the painting, leave me alone.
