Sony’s Uncharted movie has had a notably troubled road so far. After numerous attempts to get the movie off the ground, several delays and a revolving door of eight directors, the project was finally set to begin filming next month in Berlin. However, due to ongoing coronavirus concerns, Sony has decided to delay production on the Uncharted movie.
According to Variety, Sony has paused filming on the Uncharted movie for six weeks after it was felt best for the safety of all involved to delay the shoot in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is currently unknown if Sony will stick to this six-week delay and if and how it will impact the planned 2021 release date.
While plot details are currently unknown, Nathan Drake star Tom Holland has previously stated that the Uncharted movie will be taking inspiration from the fourth instalment in the video game franchise, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Uncharted is set to be directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland: Double Tap) with a cast that includes Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg (Mile 22) as Sully as well as Antonio Banderas (Pain and Glory), Sophia Ali (Truth or Dare), and Tati Gabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) in undisclosed roles.
Uncharted is currently slated for a March 5th 2021 release.
