    Yes, it's Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Tom Holland who will apparently get in the shoes of Nathan Drake, according to an exclusive report by Deadline.

    First announced in 2009, it looks like Sony Pictures is moving ahead with the movie and even did some reconfiguration to base the story around a young Nathan Drake, taking inspiration from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception hence the choice of the 20-year old actor. The story will also include Nathan's first encounter with the professional rogue, Sullivan.

    This reformulation of the franchise was an inspiration of Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman after seeing the latest cut of the Spider-Man film, says the report.

    Deadline also reports that Sony Pictures will now set a new scribe to draft the story line that captures the protagonist as he grows into the treasure hunter Nathan Drake.

    While the movie doesn't have a release date nor a final title, we can still discuss about it in the light of the new information. What do you think of the choice to use Tom Holland to portray protagonist? Will you be interested to see a movie that focuses on Nathan Drake's youth?

    Youth, 40 year old doesn't matter since Drake acts like a 5 year old all the time.

    LOL is it a Uncharted the Babby Years prequel, where he use maps from fast food tray liners and tries to go uncover the Golden Happy meal at the end of a treacherous maze filled with Fry Guys and Hamburglars?

    Oh Hollywood, never stop sucking...

    That's unfortunate. The guy looks nothing like Drake.

    I was hoping that they'd hire James Wolk, Nolan North or Desmond Harrington. Hell, why didn't they just hire Nolan North? He's the voice of Drake after all.

    It sounds like a plot for a Rugrats episode so it might work :P

    But in a more serious note, yes he does look way too young to portray Nathan Drake. Actually I would totally see a slightly younger Nathan Fillion for the role (not necessarily for his acting skills, but more for his face)

    After playing 3 and a half Uncharted games, that is not who I imagined playing Nathan Drake.

    LOL, "Uncharted: Babies".


    With that casting, there's no way they're not doing some sort of "origins" story of how Nathan Drake became Nathan Drake.
    Which will probably suck.

    Makeup and some editing can work wonders, so I won't be judging it until I see some actual shots from the film.

    For a video game movie that has a 95% chance of being terrible, it's perfect casting.
