I was half way through writing this post before I noticed that the Uncharted movie had it’s release date move forward rather than back. Surely that can’t be right?
The video game movie has had a horrendously tortured limp to the big screen and was first written about on TSA over ten years ago. Since then it’s been delayed, re-written and re-cast more times than anyone can count, every time I write about the movie it’s because it has been delayed but these are strange times and it’s true, the Uncharted movie has been pushed forward.
The last time we talked about the movie, March 2020, it had been delayed until late 2021 because of the ever present coronavirus. Now Sony have had a bit of a rethink and the movie is now coming out in July 2021 instead. That gives them fifteen months to get it ready which seems ambitious considering the world is still in lockdown and even when that lifts there will probably be restrictions in place for a rest of the year.
Along with Uncharted a bunch of other Sony movies have been shifted around including the next Spider-Man movie and the animated Into The Spider-Verse sequel, here’s a full list of what has moved.

The Uncharted movie is set to film in Berlin with Tom Holland is taking the lead role of Nathan Drake. He will be playing a younger version of the character with some events inspired by Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End but will be a prequel to the video games. Mark Wahlberg is stepping into the shoes of Victor Sullivan with Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” actor Tati Gabrielle also joining the cast.
