Oh, hey, look at this! Momentum! Uncharted is one of those video games that has been in works in Hollywood for roughly a century, with writers and filmmakers making their way through the projects like it’s Central Station. Video games, in particular, have had a rough time in the film industry, with their narratives being quite difficult to adapt to a standard story. However, if there is one property that embodies the spirit of Hollywood movies, it’s Uncharted.
The film has had Tom Holland attached to it for some time now, and earlier this year, Shawn Levy exited the project due to scheduling conflicts. Taking his place is Dan Trachtenberg, who is known for 10 Cloverfield Lane, and the latest script was drafted by Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker.

But we have another update for you, courtesy of Sony. The studio has announced a release date of December 18, 2020 — so, in roughly 1.5 years’ time, we’ll be able to see Nathan Drake on the big screen. What this means to me is that they are making some decent progress and that the script is at least approaching a place where they’re comfortable with it. If all goes well, they can get in front of cameras by the end of this year or early next year.
What do you think? Will THIS be the film to really break the video game curse? I know while Detective Pikachu was somewhat successful, it wasn’t the big hip many of us expected it would be.
