Certainly, the production of the new film by Uncharted it was, to say the least, bumpy. We must remember that the first plans to bring the adventures of Nathan Drake to the big screen arose in 2008, a year after the launch of the first video game. However, the years passed and everything seemed to indicate that the project would never see the light of day.
Despite its turbulent start, the film gradually began to take shape and in 2017 it was confirmed that Tom Holland would be the one who would play the protagonist. Interestingly, the British actor had his first approach to the franchise just a year before his participation in the action film was confirmed.

There he confirmed that the first time he played the video game was during the filming of Spider-Man: Homecoming in 2016.
“One of the luxuries of making these movies is that they were made by Sony, and one of the luxuries of working for Sony is PlayStation. So all of the actor trailers were stocked with the best TVs and the latest PlayStation consoles, and one of the games they gave me was Uncharted”, Assured the actor.
Tom Holland continued with his account and claims that in high-profile productions such as Spider-Man: Homecoming there are a lot of downtimes on set, so he took advantage of those break instances to play the titles of Uncharted in the company of his best friend.
“As soon as we started we couldn’t stop. I remember they tried to get me out of my trailer and I said: ‘No, no, no, we are about to complete this mission,’ “shared the interpreter.
