Mark Wahlberg appears to have given people a first glimpse of his take on Victor “Sully” Sullivan from the Uncharted movie, and it does not seem like Sully is happy in this moment. If this is a line from the movie then he is telling someone not to ask, and who wants to bet the line is directed at Nathan Drake? The clip below follows our first look at Tom Holland as Nathan Drake from last week, and you can see the image of that here.

According to Tom, Uncharted 4 will give a lot of inspiration for the story but the film will very much be its own thing. As Tom is portraying a younger Nathan Drake in the movie this will be a prequel of sorts, which avoids the issue of having to adopt a game directly. Ruben Fleischer is attached to direct the movie having recently worked on Venom and Zombieland: Double Tap. Previous people attached to direct the project include Travis Knight, David O. Russell, Dan Trachtenberg, Shawn Levy, Seth Gordon, and Neil Burger. Each left for their own reason with Travis Knight apparently leaving due to Tom Holland’s own filming schedule clash.
The Uncharted movie has been in development for so long that Mark Wahlberg has gone from originally being considered to play Nathan Drake, and now he is Victor Sullivan. Sony recently announced it had pushed back the release date of the movie to October 2021 after previously announcing a March 2021 and December 2020 release date. Though with COVID-19 currently having a major impact that date will not be set in stone.
