Uncharted voice actor Nolan North recently revealed that he can’t see Mark Wahlberg as Sully for the upcoming movie starring Tom Holland.
Sony’s live-action Uncharted is one of the many video game movies in development that has also had a hard time getting off the ground. The project was expected to start filming soon, but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Uncharted‘s release date was also pushed back once again from March 2021 to October 2021.
Based on Tom Holland’s casting as Nathan Drake, the film will likely follow Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception loosely. Mark Wahlberg, who was once on board to play Nathan Drake, is now set to play Sully. Nolan North, who voices Nathan Drake in the games, admitted to Retro Replay that he can’t see Mark Wahlberg as Sully when asked about the upcoming movie:
“I think the fact that they’re gonna make it [The Last of Us] a series is way better than making a movie out of anything. I think having the guy who did Chernobyl is the frigging elephant in the room that you need to get things done. I’m more excited about that – I gotta be honest – than I am about an Uncharted movie. I love Mark Wahlberg but I don’t see him as Sully. I just don’t see that as Sully.”

Based on the PlayStation video game series of the same name, the film is set to chronicle the first encounter between Tom Holland’s Nathan Drake and the fortune seeker and businessman Victor Sullivan.
Directed by Venom helmer Reuben Fletcher from a script written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins, Uncharted is being produced by Sony PlayStation Productions, with Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan producing alongside Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad.
Uncharted will be released in theaters on October 8th, 2021.
