Uncharted Movie Has Recieved Yet Another New Release Date

It's still scheduled for a 2021 release.

It looks like there may be some - potentially - good news for those of us that have been waiting patiently for the Uncharted movie, ever since it was first mentioned back in 2008. The release date for the movie adaptation of Naughty Dog's popular game series has been moved to July 16, 2021.

The last date we had heard for the release was March 5, 2021 - but according to GamesRadar, Sony Pictures has moved the release date from October 8 next year to its new release date of July 2021. This means it's actually been pushed ahead of schedule - I mean, if you discount the last ten or so years, obviously.

While that seems like great news, I wouldn't get too excited quite yet. Just last week Tom Holland told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview that filming for the Uncharted movie was called off on day one, due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

It's an odd move from Sony, for sure. There's no word - as far as we know - on when filming will start up again. And considering that it's going to be largely down to how quickly the current pandemic calms down and restrictions are lifted, it's hard to imagine that Sony is completely confident that the new release date will pan out.

The Uncharted movie has had a lot of ups and downs since its inception. It's gone through a huge number of directors and has finally - hopefully! - settled on Ruben Fleischer (Venom and Zombieland: Double Tap) who joined the project in March of this year. He joins Tom Holland (Nathan Drake), Mark Wahlberg (Victor "Sully" Sullivan), and Antonio Banderas, whose role is currently unknown.

"I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don't is that it's an origin story to the games," Holland told IGN in an interview. "So if you played the games, you haven't seen what's going to happen in the film. And if you haven't played the games, you're going to enjoy the film because it's information that everyone else is getting at the same time. But I'm super excited to make that movie and it's been a long time coming."

Of course, we'll keep you updated as and when we hear more.
