The idea of adapting the adventures of “Uncharted”, the PlayStation series to cinema, has been circulating in Hollywood for the past decade without being realized until now. Directors like David O. Russell or Travis Knight, among many others, were linked with this project until Ruben Fleischer took over.
Art Marcum and Matt Holloway are the authors of the film’s screenplay, which narrates the origins of bounty hunters Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan (the game’s heroes), and serves as a precursor to the video games. While direction is responsible for Robin Fleischer.
The director of this adaptation stated that he tried to make a fun movie both for people related to the video games of the Naughty Dog series and for those who have never connected with this adventure: fans of the game and for those who are not familiar with the franchise yet, I think you will equally enjoy the amazing action and fun.

Holland’s career changed forever when Marvel and Sony decided he was the new Spider-Man, but before that he had already popped into “Impossible”; He lends his voice to a character in the animated movie “Onward” and shows his versatility in “The Devil at All Hours.” Mark Wahlberg was initially thought to play Drake, but time passed and he finally fell for the role of Victor Sullivan.
