A new rumor this weekend indicates Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are on the short list to play Sully, partner and mentor to treasure hunter Nathan Drake (Tom Holland), in the upcoming “Uncharted” film at Sony Pictures.
That Hashtag Show, who broke Holland’s casting news last year, reported the rumor saying these four are under consideration for the part with Hemsworth in the lead. Whoever wins will be paired with the twentysomething “Spider-Man” star as a much younger version of Drake than the one seen in the PlayStation video game series – as a result the Sully of the film will be cast decidedly younger too.
The site adds shooting could begin as early as this July. Hemsworth and Holland have co-starred in several films together from “In the Heart of the Sea” to the Marvel Studios “Avengers” films. In addition, Holland is Sony’s golden boy and Hemsworth has shot two films recently with the studio – “Ghostbusters” and “Men In Black: International”.
Dan Trachtenberg will helm the project.
