The Uncharted Movie Gets Another Delay, This Time Until 2022
The movie will now release on February 11, 2022.
Sony Pictures has confirmed that the Uncharted movie, which was scheduled for release in July this year, has been delayed until February 11, 2022. Uncharted joined Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Cinderella and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway in this recent batch of delays.
The movie has already had a troubled production cycle. Uncharted saw a number of director changes within the early stages of development and has already subsequently faced a handful of delays. This delay, caused by the COVID pandemic, is just another in a string that the movie has had thrust upon it. The movie was originally scheduled to release back in 2016.
The good news for excited fans is that filming on the movie has already wrapped. It was confirmed back in October, along with a tease of Mark Wahlberg’s Sully, that principal photography was complete and therefore the movie would be entering the next stage of production.
While we’ve not received an official trailer, or any footage of the movie as of yet, we have been treated to a few pictures. Released at the start of the year, the official Uncharted Twitter account showed off four new images which included a map and a range of other mysterious items.
Alongside the upcoming Uncharted movie, Sony has confirmed that a TV show, based on another Naughty Dog property, The Last of Us, is in production from HBO. The series, which is based on the original game, will be written and produced by Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin. It was also recently confirmed that directing the show would be Russian filmmaker Kantemir Balagov.
It looks like that won’t be the end of it either, as PlayStation head Jim Ryan recently said: “You’ll see this year the upcoming Tom Holland film Uncharted, based on our iconic adventure games. And The Last of Us, a gritty, emotional journey, will be coming to HBO. This is just the beginning of the expansion of our storytelling into new media and even wider audiences.”
