Also in the new movie are Sophie ali (The Savages, Grey’s Anatomy), Tati Gabrielle (The 100, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Antonia Banderas (Zorro’s mask, Genie).
What is Uncharted based on?
For those who do not know the Unexplored franchise, the upcoming film adaptation is based on the hugely popular video game series about a young treasure hunter and his many death-defying adventures. The first video game, the years 2007 Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, presents Nathan Drake as a supposed descendant of historical adventurer Sir Francis Drake, in search of the treasure of El Dorado, a so-called golden kingdom. Third-person perspective action game, the success of the first led to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves in 2009, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in 2011, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End like the last of the main series in 2016. There have also been a few spinoffs and remastered versions. Of course, as such a profitable and acclaimed series, it’s no surprise that Sony has been trying to make a film adaptation for so long. In fact, after being in development hell for so long, it’s more of a surprise that the movie actually comes out. But hey, we’re not complaining.
Who are the characters confirmed for Uncharted?
While it is possible that there are a few characters from the video games – or original creations for the film – that appear in Unexplored but have yet to be revealed, the main cast of characters has thankfully been confirmed.
Tom Holland plays Nathan “Nate” Drake, a young man interested in traveling the world and hunting for ancient treasures. He is very adaptable and unafraid which makes him the perfect hero for this adventure.
The film’s co-director is Mark Walhberg as Victor “Sully” Sullivan, Nate’s older mentor who has been hunting fortune for a long time now. He develops a close trusting relationship with Nate, becoming his father figure.
Sophia Ali plays Chloe Frazer, another treasure hunter who travels with Nate throughout the film. In video games, she has a romantic affair with the protagonist, and it looks like she will be her sweetheart in the movie version as well.
There isn’t much information on the rest of the characters yet, although it has been revealed that Tati Gabrielle’s character name is Braddock, while Antonio Banderas plays the main antagonist of the treasure hunt. of the movie.
What is the plot of Uncharted?
It looks like most Unexplored will focus on the beginning of Nate’s story, with the entire plot of the film taking place before the events of the first game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. The film will serve as a sort of prequel, showing Nate’s early development as a treasure hunter, and in particular, his relationship with Sully, who is the emotional hub of the video game franchise. In a way, it’s also the story of how Sully becomes the mustached, weathered man fans know and love. As Nate and Sully search for the treasure, they face a lot of puzzles and other difficulties.
At the same time, Nate searches for clues as to the whereabouts of his older brother, Samuel “Sam” Drake, a storyline that could possibly distract from the sibling’s story in the game’s version. Sam apparently disappears earlier while searching for the alleged treasure of explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who toured the world in the early 1500s – well, sort of. Magellan never really made it home, as he was killed on his travels and some of his crew ended the trip instead.
Magellan is said to have found a lot of gold on the way, which will likely be factored into the story of the film, as the book The life of Ferdinand Magellan and the first tour of the globe by Francis Henry Hill Guillemard appears in one of the film’s official photos. Another perhaps important fact to note is that Sir Francis Drake, Nate’s supposed ancestor, toured the world (completely) from 1577 to 1580, shortly after Magellan’s attempt. Only time will tell how the Unexplored The film will integrate the history and history of the video game in the adapted version.

After such a long delay for the film, Unexplored finally started filming in mid-March 2020. As you might have guessed it didn’t last long, and right after filming started it had to be shut down due to the COVID pandemic -19. As such an international film, Sony planned to shoot across Europe. Unexplored production was able to restart at the end of July 2020, while respecting all security protocols, with filming taking place mainly in Germany and Spain.
