Tom Holland's 'UNCHARTED' movie set for December 2020
Naughty Dog and Sony Entertainment’s live-action video game adaptation will go up against Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ on December 18, 2020.
After what felt like a tumultuous rollercoaster ride, Sony has locked up the theatrical release date for Tom Holland’s UNCHARTED adaptation.
Holland stars as the game’s central protagonist, Nathan Drake, a rebellious treasure hunter who travels the globe to uncover earth’s historical mysteries.
Drake's Fortune, the first game in the series, was released for Playstation 3 in 2007. Shortly after Fortune’s success, Sony announced plans to develop a film adaptation under their film division in 2008 (shocker). However, for various reasons plans never materialized and everyone from David O. Russell, Seth Gordon, and Shawn Levy were attached to direct with scripts written by Russell, David Guggenheim, Mark Boal, and Joe Carnahan. And to top it all off Mark Wahlberg, who is seemingly attached to star in everything in development, headlined the short list of "Nathan Drake’s" along with Chris Pratt.
As is stands today, 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg will direct from the latest script written by Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker.
I can’t say Uncharted elicits a ton of excitement. But if I had to choose between this and Indiana Jones 5, I’d opt for the fresher IP, and that’s debatable.
How about you?
