Mark Wahlberg’s Sully Revealed in New Uncharted Photo

Sony Pictures has released (via The New York Times) a new photo from the upcoming Uncharted movie. The photo gives us a first good look at Mark Wahlberg’s Victor “Sully” Sullivan.

In the video games, Sully has a mustache, though the film is reportedly set during an earlier time in the lives of Nathan Drake and Sully.

The cast of the Sony Pictures release also includes Antonio Banderas, Tati Gabrielle (The 100) as Braddock, and Sophia Taylor Ali as Chloe Frazer.

The Uncharted film is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom). Fleischer’s credits include the Zombieland movies, 30 Minutes or Less and Gangster Squad.


Art Marcum & Matt Holloway (Iron Man and Men in Black: International) and Rafe Judkins wrote the script.

The project is the first feature production of Sony PlayStation Productions. Headed by Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan, PlayStation Productions has come on to produce alongside Chuck Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad. Qizilbash and Swan will serve as executive producers.


Based on the Naughty Dog video games for PlayStation consoles, the film is said to take its basis from the sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in which the young Nathan “Nate” Drake (Holland) encounters his partner Victor Sullivan for the first time.

Another thing.... Tati Gabrielle does not play Elena Fisher. Elena isn't in this movie since it takes place before the first game (when Drake and Elena fist meet). Tati Gabrielle plays a character called Braddock.

Sorry, but... Sully without a mustache? That's like Indiana Jones without his fedora and whip. It is a defining feature of the character. Even in the flashbacks of the games Sully had a mustache. He was probably born with a mustache. All joking aside, that is the most insignificant issue I have with Mark Wahlberg in the role. Wahlberg is one of those actors hired to play himself in every role, and he is nothing like the character of Victor Sullivan. The role needs a character actor. I'll withhold final judgement until I see the movie—maybe he'll surprise me—but I just don't have much confidence at this point.
