Uncharted Movie Release Date Set
Uncharted is a property almost too well-suited for a movie adaptation, the Naughty Dog titles themselves often drawing inspiration from epic cinematic blockbusters in portraying the treasure-hunting exploits of Nathan Drake. Though we have yet to see an Uncharted movie properly adapted in live-action (on the big screen anyways), Sony Pictures has been giving it their best try with the introduction of a solid director in Dan Trachtenberg and a charismatic star in Marvel actor Tom Holland.
Outside a small update here and there, progress on the project has always seemingly stopped short of production, leaving many to wonder when the adaptation might actually get made, if ever. However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has announced a release date for the upcoming adaptation, with Uncharted film slated to land December 18th, 2020. This announcement not only officially confirms Holland for the role of Drake, but also suggests production is expected to begin sometime soon.
As the end of next year promises to deliver the swashbuckling goods of Uncharted, fans will finally get to see the movie following several failed versions of the project. As evident by Tom Holland’s casting, this new iteration of Drake will be portrayed significantly younger than in previous games, instead exploring the character’s origins leading up to Naughty Dog’s 2007 title. THR notes that Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker are currently writing the screenplay, but it wasn’t said when production might actually begin.
