Fresh-faced web-slinger Tom Hol­land is the sur­prise pick to play relic hunter Nathan Drake in the Un­charted movie. Based on the globe-plun­der­ing third per­son shooter, the film will steal in­spi­ra­tion from the third and fourth games, where you have a chance to play a younger in­car­na­tion of the rugged rogue. Do­ing a pre­quel was ac­tu­ally Hol­land’s idea: “It was a con­ver­sa­tion I had with [Sony Pic­tures head] Tom Roth­man,” he re­veals to Ya­hoo Movies, “about the po­ten­tial of dif­fer­ent movies that I’d like to work with for Sony, and I had the idea that maybe a young Nathan Drake is some­thing that au­di­ences would be in­ter­ested in. I met Shawn [Levy, di­rec­tor] at the MTV Awards and we had a brief chat about the po­ten­tial of do­ing an ori­gin story, rather than copy­ing what the games have done, and it seems like peo­ple are re­ally ex­cited about it.”
