Therefore, the post of Holland indicates that filming has finally begun on the long-awaited Uncharted movie after several delays that have happened over a decade, with a number of directors and actors joining the production and leaving it again during that time. That all happened since June 2009.
It was known that the adaptation of Uncharted movie for cinemas has a long history and full of production problems, with several changes of directors since 2010. More recently, the production of the film had to be delayed due to the effects of the pandemic of the COVID-19 coronavirus, but it appears that work has officially resumed.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom), the Uncharted movie stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor, Victor “Sully” Sullivan. Interestingly, Wahlberg was tipped to play Drake when the project was being played by director David O. Russell.
In another promising update, Sony announced that the release of the Uncharted movie was brought forward from October 8, 2021, to July 16, 2021, despite pre-production being delayed again due to the coronavirus outbreak.
