Even though June 30th 2017 was supposed to be the release date of the Uncharted movie, it seems like Sony will postpone it after all. Not surprisingly, since a few directors were changed for the movie – David O’Rusell, Neil Burger, and Seth Gordon, namely – and still no one has been cast to play the role of Nathan Drake, the title role.
There’s still a lot to be done, and for the movie to be released next summer, filming would have to be well underway by now. Also, it’s unknown when the filming is actually going to start, and if it’s going to be any time soon.
Considering the announcement that Joe Carnahan, director of The A-Team and The Grey, will need to work on both the new script and directing the movie, and that Carnahan was also hired by Sony to work on Bad Boys 3, Uncharted won’t see the light of day for quite some time.
It’s no wonder, then, that Sony has removed the movie from their release schedules for the time being. Right now we can only guess when it’s going to be released – most likely summer 2018, or around that time.
