New ‘Uncharted’ Image Gives First Look At Mark Wahlberg As Sully

After more than a decade of problems, Sony’s Uncharted movie based on the hit Naughty Dog video game is a thing that is actually happening. Earlier this year we got our first glimpse of Tom Holland as young adventurer Nathaniel Drake. And now today, the NY Times has revealed a new image that not only has Holland, but Mark Wahlberg as his mentor, Victor “Sully” Sullivan.

Those who have been following Uncharted‘s winding journey will remember that Wahlberg was originally to be the movie’s star, but was one of many who came and left over the years. He returned to play an entirely different role, that of Sully, with Holland as Drake.

I’ve seen some set photos that show Wahlberg looking older, which could mean the film jumps around in time quite a bit. However, it’s meant to take place before events in the first video game.

Uncharted opens on February 18th 2022.
