Uncharted Movie Earns New Release Date
It's a long ways off but at least we have a new date.
After having been rumored to debut in 2016, the "Uncharted" movie ran into numerous snags and has since been delayed. But now, according to Variety, Sony says the anticipated action/adventure film will release on June 30, 2017.
This project has been in the works for about 6 years now (it was announced in 2009) and it has gone through multiple changes, including a bunch of different directors and writers. Right now, we have no idea who's playing the lead role of Nathan Drake, as Chris Pratt is one of several who has passed, and Seth Rogan and Evan Gold ("Superbad") have declined to handle the script. It's hard to believe we can have a date when nothing appears to be nailed down.
But maybe the specific details will start arriving in the coming months. And don't forget about the special Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection set to release this fall; Sony says there are "buckets more to come" concerning that package, too.
