Sony Pictures would be eyeing Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston to play a big role in the upcoming movie adaptation of Uncharted, according to the latest rumors. Cranston would be up for a “large supporting role,” although no more details have transcended. However, considering the fact that the movie is adapting a flashback passage from Uncharted 3, one of the most popular opinions online is that he would be playing the role of Victor Sullivan “Sully,” the mentor of the young protagonist Nathan Drake. The information was shared online by ThatHashtagShow.com, based on their own sources.
This would be the first piece of news concerning the Uncharted movie since Sony Pictures announced this summer that the protagonist role would be played by Tom Holland, the star of the newest Spider-Man revision, and considered one of the most promising stars in Hollywood nowadays thanks to his involvement on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The fact that Sony is looking to create a long movie series in which the audience sees the protagonist grow into the role suggests that Cranston’s involvement would also be a long term deal if confirmed.
Uncharted is certainly not the only videogame to bring excitement to the big screen in the coming months, as only days ago we showed you the first trailer of the new Tomb Raider film starring Alicia Vikander, which is based on the 2013 reboot.
