It’s been over a decade since work began on a movie based on Naughty Dog’s popular Uncharted games. In that time, the film has cycled through seven directors, five release dates, and a series of scripts and actors. But we finally have a photo of Tom Holland — who’ll be playing a younger version of Nathan Drake — in full costume as the character gives the best evidence yet that the film is actually happening this time.
The shot is admittedly not much to go by — just a still of Holland in Drake’s cargo pants / henley combo and matching pistol holsters. But looking closely reveals the ring, which, in the game’s canon, belongs to Nathan’s maybe-ancestor Sir Francis Drake.
The story is a prequel to the games, starring Holland as a younger Drake, showing us details of how he came to meet and befriend Sully.
