Uncharted Movie Gets a Release Date
Jonathan Anson / Jul 24th, 2014 No Comments
Sony Pictures officially established a release date for the upcoming movie adaptation of the Uncharted series.
The film will see a theatrical release on June 10, 2016. This date was originally assigned to the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 3 which is now being pushed back to 2018.
The Uncharted movie is currently being developed with the cooperation of established executive Avid Arad (The Amazing Spider-Man). He will be producing the movie along with Charles Roven (The Dark Knight) and Alex Gartner (28 Days Later). Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) will be directing the film whose current draft is written by David Guggenheim (Safe House).
[adsense250itp]Details are scarce about the actual movie so far. What’s certain is that it is based on the popular Playstation exclusive franchise by Naughty Dog. Seth Gordon revealed in an interview that the story will be faithful to the exploits of series protagonist and fortune hunter, Nathan Drake.
Filming on the movie will begin next year. In the meantime emphasis is being placed on finding a suitable person to play Drake. Sony is reportedly attempting to sign Mark Wahlberg for the role.
The Uncharted movie has had its ups and down ever since it was first announced in 2009. It’s been in something of a development hell until now. The firm establishment of a release date means there is still vested interest to see this film come to fruition. Even when it releases, it still remains to be seen if the Uncharted movie is good, as video game films rarely tend to be so.
