Uncharted Movie Delayed Again for Seemingly Billionth Time
The Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg-led Uncharted movie based on the hit game franchise has once again been delayed, this time only by three months.
Sony and PlayStation Productions announced Friday night that they have once again delayed the Tom Holland-led Uncharted movie, this time into 2021.
The movie, which co-stars Mark Wahlberg, is now set to hit theaters on March 5, 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film was originally set to hit theaters on December 18, 2020, meaning it was only delayed three months in total, a shorter amount of time compared to its other delays.
Currently, the film doesn’t have a director, although Venom and Zombieland: Double Tap director Ruben Fleischer has been eyed to helm the project. Back in December, Bumblebee director Travis Knight dropped out of the project after being attached to the film for three months.
Little to no news has been revealed about the movie’s reporter shoot date, but if it currently doesn’t have a director, it’s not hard to believe that the movie will probably be delayed again. And that’s giving Sony the benefit of the doubt that it’ll even be made at all considering its insanely long development period.
Remember, an Uncharted movie has been in the works in some way-shape-or-form since before the release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on PlayStation 3 in 2009. At this point, I’ll believe the movie is happening when I’m sitting down in the theaters to watch it.
Until March, or whenever the movie eventually hits theaters, there are a few things that’ll scratch your Uncharted itch. First and foremost, if you really want to check out an Uncharted film, might I suggest the fan-film created by filmmaker Allan Ungar. In my opinion, it’s a perfect representation of the franchise and proof that a film could work.
If the games are more your speed, The Nathan Drake Collection, which comes with the story modes for the first three Uncharted games, is available right now for free if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber.
