Sony’s Uncharted movie can’t seem to catch a break. After numerous attempts to get the film off the ground, several delays and a revolving door of eight directors, the project was finally set to begin filming this year.
Now, with Sony delaying production on the video game adaptation, star Tom Holland has revealed that he had arrived in Berlin with principal photography finally starting before the global health crisis halted all ongoing operations on the film and he was sent home.
“Yeah, we went to work Day 1,” Holland said on Instagram Live (via CinemaBlend). “I’m doing this movie called Uncharted, which is based on a video game. And we showed up for our first day of shooting and then they shut us down. I was in Berlin, so I had to come home and now I’m back in London.”
Additionally, Sony has delayed the majority of its upcoming release schedule due to the current situation, including the Uncharted movie which was originally set for 5th March 2021, but has now been pushed back to 8th October 2021.
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.
