Star Lord will not be playing Nathan Drake in Sony’s big screen adaptation of the video game “Uncharted.” According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Pratt was offered the lead role in the film but he passed.
Mark Wahlberg also was attached to star as Nathan Drake during the time when David O. Russell was directing but has now also moved on from the role.
Currently, “Uncharted” the movie has no lead actor but Sony is still moving forward. They have hired Oscar winner Mark Boal, most known for his work on Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker, to pen the script. Seth Gordon is currently attached to direct.
There is no word when the project will begin production or when Sony will begin to seriously look for a new leading man.
