    I hope this project just dies quietly and everyone moves on eventually. I love Holland but he doesn't fit Drake at all, and I don't think this would do him any favors even if he wants to do it.

    Not with Tom Rothman in charge of the studio.

    That picture makes him look like the second caveman in that commercial who's been picked to go next after the first one got dragged underwater by the sea creature.

    I just want it to start from scratch with appropriate casting. I want the likes of Uncharted and Tomb Raider to aim for the heights of Indiana Jones. This is a genre I love despite nothing coming close to Indy after all these years.

    I enjoyed both of the National Treasure films.

    This, the game is practically a movie anyway, just adapt it directly.

    And yeah, I like Fleischer a lot but think this could do his career damage. He should do Zombieland 3 or another CBM instead.

    I like them - I give them about 7/10 as opposed to Indy with 9s.

    A few days ago I read this was delayed back to 2021 while they hunted for another director, now apparently Ruben Fleischer is attached and it hopes to start filming in March.

    If it starts filming in March, it’ll have to be out of the way before Spider-Man 3 starts in July.

    You think an Uncharted movie could hurt the career of the man who's made 30 Minutes or Less, Gangster Squad, Venom and Zombieland 2?

    If those movies don't tank a career, I don't know what will.

    Well Venom inexplicably made a billion dollars at the box office, so that wasn't likely to hurt his career even if he isn't coming back for the sequel.

    As Schlosser said, Venom made almost a billion at the BO and I enjoyed it a lot. Both Zombieland movies were really good and did well critically and financially.

    So yeah, your point doesn't totally stand up.

    Venom did not make a billion at the box office.

    Anyway, I read that National Treasure 3 is being developed.

    Not the best of choices IMO. I think one of the Disney ‘adventure’ guys – Gore Verbinski or Jon Turtletaub - could do something predictable but at least serviceable with it. Doug Liman would be a better choice, he could at least capture the frenetic action I feel..

    Personally though, I would have gone with Wes Ball (even if it meant waiting til he was done with the new Apes). And recast with Dylan O’Brien while they're at it (if they want a young Drake).

    I don't understand why Sony is pushing so hard for this movie to be made. Uncharted was made to be a play on the Indiana Jones/adventure film archetype; the games are already cinematic films that are interactive experiences. A movie adaptation is pointless.

    And on top of that, Tom Holland is set to star as a 16 year old Drake which makes an already unnecessary project, even more redundant. Why would you base an entire Uncharted movie off of a couple of minor segments from the third game? I have little to no interest in seeing a teenage Drake running around for the whole film

    This is just a star vehicle for Tom Holland at this point

    Yeah, I really enjoyed both Zombieland movies, Gangster Squad and Venom.

    But we all know how salty people get when someone touches a character they want in the MCU.

    Looks like it’s officially set to begin filming March 2 in Berlin and wrap June 26.

    Seems kind of a tight window with Spider-Man 3 scheduled to start filming in July, but they’re both Sony movies so I guess it could work it out if it needs to.

    I have played the games, and Tom Holland must think I'm an idiot.

    He's probably playing a young Nate Drake and he's definitely acrobatic enough to do the parkour action sequences for the film. If it's done right we could definitely see him grow into becoming the legendary older Relic hunter. I have a good feeling Tom can lead and do well with the film if the script, cast and screen play is fairly faithful to the source material like Jeff Folwer accomplish with Sonic the Hedgehog for Paramount Pictures.
