The upcoming Uncharted movie has a release date. Sony has announced that the movie will hit cinemas on December 18th next year. As far as we know, that's just the US date. We're not yet sure when the movie will be in cinemas worldwide, but it probably won't be too far away from December 18th.
We don't yet know a whole lot about the movie. It'll star Spider-Man and Avengers actor Tom Holland as Nathan Drake. We also know that the movie will be directed by 10 Cloverfield Lane head honcho Dan Trachtenberg after the previous director Shawn Levy left the project back in January. Screenwriters Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker will write the latest draft of the Uncharted script. The picture will be battling Steven Spielberg's upcoming West Side Story remake, which will hit cinemas on the same day. Here's hoping Uncharted can still find an audience among those left cold by musicals.
Story-wise, we're not sure where Uncharted is headed, appropriately enough. It'd make sense for the filmmakers to adapt the first game's story. There's also a chance the movie will center on Uncharted: Golden Abyss since the PlayStation Vita game was a prequel. Of course, it's also possible the movie will just go for an entirely new story. Realistically, it only needs to be a big action spectacle with lots of explosions and setpieces and it'll be a pretty accurate adaptation. With no word on other cast members, filming locations, or even a title for the film, we'll just have to wait for more on this. At least fans now have a release date to get hyped about. The as-yet-untitled Uncharted film will hit theaters on December 18th, 2020.
