Spider-Man is one busy guy. Deadline is reporting that actor Tom Holland has been hired by Sony to star as Nathan Drake in an adaptation of the video game Uncharted.
Sony Pictures head Tom Rothman was so excited after seeing a cut of Spider-Man: Homecoming that he just had to snatch Holland up for another hoped-for film franchise.
It should come as no surprise, since Holland was brimming with charm and infectious charisma during his first appearance as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. After many delays to getting Uncharted off the ground as a film, maybe the attachment of Holland will speed up developments.
Don’t expect a movie anytime soon, however, with Sony just now setting out to find a screenwriter for a Batman Begins-style first pic for Nathan Drake.
