"So if you played the games, you haven't seen what's going to happen in the film. And if you haven't played the games, you're going to enjoy the film because it's information that everyone else is getting at the same time," Holland told IGN in February. "But I'm super excited to make that movie and it's been a long time coming."

Uncharted is directed by Ruben Fleischer and co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas. Fleischer joined the project in January following the exits of six other directors since the film was first announced in 2011.

Uncharted was initially scheduled for release Dec. 18 but will now open in theaters in July 2021.

Holland is known for playing Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, in Spider-Man: Homecoming and other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He will reprise the role in his third Spider-Man film, set for release in November 2021.
