Sony’s Uncharted movie starring Spider-Man actor Tom Holland finally has a release date. The film will hit theatres on December 18, 2020.
The movie has been in the works for more than half a decade already, but this is the first time Sony is committing to a release date. Holland joined the movie in 2017 when it was reported that the film will focus on a young Nathan Drake. Directing the film is Dan Trachtenberg, who took over for the previous director, Shawn Levy (Stranger Things, Night at the Museum).
Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker wrote the latest screenplay draft for the Uncharted movie, but there are no details on what the story will be or how it may be connected to the video games. Variety reports that the film will follow a young Drake who meets Victor Sullivan, or Sully as he’s known in the games, for the first time. As such, it’s not a story already told by any of the games.
Releasing on December 18, 2020 puts the Uncharted movie up directly against Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story remake.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End wrapped up Nathan Drake’s story and it was the final Uncharted game that Naughty Dog plans to make. However, the studio says Uncharted 5 could happen with a different studio.
