Back when David O. Russell was set to helm the Uncharted movie, Mark Wahlberg, who has recently popped up in Mile 22 and Instant Family, had been selected to play Nathan Drake. Considering Wahlberg’s age at the time, presumably this would have followed a Nathan Drake who’s at the same level of experience he is in the video games, rather than the prequel it is now. Regardless, following Russell’s exit, eventually Wahlberg dropped off the project, but as of late 2019, he’s back aboard. This time around, Wahlberg has been cast as Victor “Sully” Sullivan, Nathan’s mentor and father figure. So while he won’t be the main star of the show, he’ll still have plenty to do in Uncharted.
