Mark Wahlberg scares Uncharted fans by confirming the second movie’s script is ready

We wouldn’t blame you if you forgot that an Uncharted movie came out in 2022 and made around $400 million worldwide. We also wouldn’t blame you if you forgot Mark Wahlberg was supposed to play Sully in that same movie. Well, he’s now confirmed the second installment is almost ready to start shooting.

Naughty Dog’s last two video game franchises have found success on both the big and small screens, so it only makes sense that Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions would want to make Uncharted 2 sooner rather than later. Whether they’ll be able to start shooting this year remains to be seen.

Screen Rant recently talked to Wahlberg, who’s been staying busy recently with movies such as The Six Billion Dollar Man and The Union, and were able to extract a golden nugget of information from him regarding the status of Uncharted 2. In spite of all the radio silence from Sony, it seems like they could start shooting as early as this year. “Actually,” Wahlberg explained, “I just got a call today that they got the script in. I can’t grow a real beard and mustache, but they said, ‘Start growing your mustache. It’s gonna take a while.’ I’d be interested to see what the story’s like, and where that adventure takes us. But I’m excited; I know audiences really loved the first one, so we’ll see.”
