Uncharted Movie Delayed Yet Again By Sony
Sony has been trying to get an Uncharted movie off the ground for as long as the series has been gracing PlayStation hardware, with the project spending well over a decade in the throes of development hell. Over the last year, the production had finally started making progress, with stars Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg attached, as well as an acclaimed director holding steady at the helm. However, recent months have seen the project take a few steps back, with Sony now announcing that the film has been delayed.
Reported by Deadline, the Uncharted movie is currently on track to release March 5th, 2021, with the film moving up three months from its original debut date of December 18th, 2020. While a specific reason wasn’t stated for the move, the movie’s recently-announced director vacancy may be the most likely culprit, as Bumblebee’s Travis Knight became the sixth director to exit the project across its past thirteen-year lifespan.

While it’ll be a bit longer wait before Nathan Drake’s live-action adventure begins, it appears Sony will continue with their all-but-produced Uncharted movie in the meantime. It was only last year when the film was considered in “advanced development,” with the film taking a more original approach in adapting the source material for the big screen. While the four-game adventure from Naughty Dog saw Drake’s story unfold as an adult, Sony’s Uncharted movie will follow a younger version of the character, with Spider-Man actor Tom Holland as Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his roguish mentor Sully.
