Tom HollandTom Holland will soon be juggling franchises: The star of "Spider-Man: Homecoming" is attached to star in the big-screen adaptation of the third-person-shooter video game "Uncharted."

Deadline reports that Holland will play a young version of treasure hunter Nathan Drake in the movie, with Shawn Levy ("Stranger Things," "Real Steel") directing.

Drake, supposedly a descendant of famous explorer Sir Frances Drake, searches for mythical treasures, much like Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. In the games, he has sought El Dorado and Marco Polo's lost fleet.

The movie will be based on Drake's first encounter with debt-ridden, cigar-chomping mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan, who has yet to be cast.

Early reaction is mixed, with some fans of the game saying they'd prefer Nathan Fillion or "Legion" star Dan Stevens for the role.
