"I really believe in the project. I believe in the work we've done. I'm very proud of how hard everyone worked," he began.

"We also made this film at the height of COVID. I know Tom Cruise loves to say that he brought the film industry back, but he forgot about this little film called Uncharted that was shooting four months before he was.

"So, I'm just very proud of what we've done. And if we were lucky enough to do it again, it would be really exciting. We've only scratched the surface of what Drake and Sully can do."

Speaking to Empire in summer 2021, Cruise reflected on getting Mission: Impossible 7 up and running again, saying: "I've produced 30 to 40 movies. I am responsible for thousands, if not tens of thousands, of jobs. All my friends in the industry, people that are in distribution, and my crew were like, 'What are we going to do? I could lose my house!'

"So I told the studio and I told the industry, 'We're going back. We're going to get everyone back to work. We're going to start shooting in the summer. And we're going to figure out how to do it safely.'"

In other news, Holland previously confessed that he was too conscious about appearing "cool" as Uncharted's young treasure hunter.

"As soon as you start worrying about 'Do I look good in this shot?' acting becomes something other than playing a character," he said.

"I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fell under that spell of being 'I want to look good now. I want this to be my cool moment.' I had to play this very tough, very stoic guy – basically be Mark Wahlberg. My character is supposed to be a f**king action hero in this moment!" he continued.

Uncharted is released in UK cinemas on February 11, 2022 and US cinemas on February 18, 2022.
