The Uncharted movie has been in the works for more than a decade, but unfortunately for fans, it’s not coming anytime soon. The wait just got even longer, as Sony has confirmed that the film starring Spider-Man actor Tom Holland as Nathan Drake will now be released in theatres on March 5, 2021, according to Deadline. Previously, the film was expected in theatres in December 2020, but that date was put into question when director Travis Knight left the project in December 2019.
Holland plays a young Drake in the Uncharted movie, while Mark Wahlberg is said to have been cast in the role of Victor “Sully” Sullivan. It was recently reported that Venom and Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is being eyed to direct the Uncharted movie.
Sony has officially hired six directors for the Uncharted movie, and all of them have quit. The previous six were David O. Russell, Seth Gordon, Neil Burger, Dan Trachtenberg, Shawn Levy, and Travis Knight
The Uncharted movie’s script has also been re-written numerous times. The most current draft that we know about was written by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway, the latter two of which wrote the original Iron Man movie.
As for the Uncharted video game series, 2017’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the most recent entry in the series, following Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in 2016. No new games have been announced, and developer Naughty Dog’s next release is The Last of Us: Part II, which is due for release in May. Even though Naughty Dog is finished with the Uncharted series and Nathan Drake’s story is over, the developer says a different studio could come in to make Uncharted 5.
