Mark Wahlberg no longer attached to Uncharted movie

The gears have been slow to turn for the long-in-development Uncharted film adaptation, with one particularly slow gear being the casting of leading man Nathan Drake. However, the list of potential actors who could step into Drake’s silver screen shoes has officially shrunk according to one of the actors themselves: Mark “Marky Mark” Wahlberg.

Wahlberg confirmed he is no longer in the running to play Drake with a short yet direct statement to We Got This Covered:

“As of now, no, I’m not attached.”

Wahlberg has apparently been one of several actors who were considered to play Nathan Drake in the Uncharted film adaptation. Fans also haven’t been shy about tossing out their own recommendations such as Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Nathan Fillion, and even voice actor Nolan North who voiced Drake in all of the Uncharted video games.
