After a COVID-19 sabbatical, Tom Holland returned to the set of Uncharted in July 2020. Bringing 16 to 18 pounds of increased muscle to play a youthful Nathan “Nate” Drake. Since Holland’s version of Nate has yet to become the legendary treasure hunter from the Uncharted video game series. He learnt flair bartending as well.
Surprisingly, Ruben Fleischer’s picture takes a lot of inspiration from Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which Holland happened to be playing during his time off from Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Rothman, the president of Sony Pictures, eventually proposed that Holland portray Drake. Since the two sides wanted to continue on their hugely successful Spider-Man relationship.
What is there is store for Tom Holland
From July 2020 through late 2021, the two Sony properties were connected as Holland completed a demanding production schedule. That included back-to-back Uncharted and Spider-Man: No Way Home shoots, as well as extra photography for both projects.
Producer Amy Pascal noted Holland’s transition into Drake when he arrived on set for Spider-Man: No Way Home in October 2020.
Lot more changes to come in the characters
Holland tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I noticed the change more so coming back to Peter.” “After we wrapped Uncharted, I flew directly from Barcelona to Atlanta to begin filming [Spider-Man: No Way Home], and I recall [producer] Amy Pascal asking me why I was walking like a man. ‘You don’t look the same,’ she said. You’re not walking in the same manner as before. There’s just something about you that’s different.’ So Nathan Drake’s body is really different from Peter Parker’s, and it took a long time for me to mould that element of him.”
