Earlier this month we learned that Sony was looking into making Tom Holland the lead role in the upcoming Uncharted movie. This caught many fans of the series off guard as Nathan Drake is a bit older than Holland, but as reports suggest, the Uncharted film will be more of an origin story.
If this is true, then a key character for the film will be Nathans partner in crime Sully. Now with no actors eyed for the role of Sully yet, Tom Holland has a few ideas who could play the role.
Check out the interview from Yahoo Movies down below:
“I think Jake Gyllenhaal could be really cool,” said Holland, “But I went to the Jurassic World film set the other day to see my friend who is directing it, and Chris Pratt is on that film, who I’ve become very good friends with…I think [Chris Pratt] would be a great Sully.
Both Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pratt are big time actors, so attaching them to the film could increase its audience range. However, it is still unclear if either of these actors would consider taking the role.
Holland also mentions that if the Uncharted film would have been an older take on Nathan Drake, he thinks Chris Pratt should play the role of Nathan; however, due to it being more of an origin story, Pratt would make a great younger Sully.
Now both these actors could serve immensely useful to the film, but at the moment it is still unclear whether or not if they are interested in the role. The Uncharted film is finally starting to pick up steam, hopefully, the ball keeps rolling, more actors get cast, and a good script gets written and we could potentially be looking at our first video game movie adaptation success!
