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