I can't believe I'm saying this... but after nearly a whole decade in development, multiple scripts and half a dozen directors, Sony's live-action Uncharted movie has finally wrapped up filming. While that doesn't mean the project is anywhere close to being done, that's one hell of a milestone for a film that I honestly didn't think was ever going to get made.
Sony confirmed the big news over on Twitter, proving to us once and for all that the cure that has lingered over Uncharted for so many years has finally been lifted. Thank the lord.
This news comes just days after Spider-Man actor Tom Holland shared a first look at himself in costume as a younger Nathan Drake. He'll be joined on his adventures by a slightly younger - but we hope no less sassy - Victor "Sully" Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg. If you needed some context as to how long Uncharted has been in development, by the way, Wahlberg was at one point in line to play Nathan Drake. He'll now be taking on the role of Drake's mentor, because that's how long this damn thing has taken to get going.
Uncharted is being directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Venom), and is currently expected in cinemas by July 2021. While there's doubtless plenty of work yet to be done, including any potential reshoots, this is such a positive step forward for the long-gestating movie that I can't help but believe in a brighter world for the first time in months.
Will Uncharted end up being any good? I have absolutely no idea - but I love Tom Holland, and I've got a soft-spot for the games. If nothing else, I'm just glad I'll never have to write another story about the damn film getting a new director. At least until the inevitable sequel is announced, I guess.
