After more than 10 years of development, the Uncharted movie finally finished filming in 2020 and is now awaiting its release later this year. Ahead of that, the movie’s official Twitter account shared some brand-new images from the film that offer a glimpse and tease about what to expect.
The key and the map stills were released earlier by Uncharted video game actor Nolan North. The other two appear to be new–check them out below.
The Uncharted movie stars Spider-Man actor Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake, with Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg portraying Victor Sullivan AKA Sully. Also starring in the film is Best Actor nominee Antonio Banderas, while Tati Grabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Sophia Ali (Grey’s Anatomy) are playing major roles as well.
After multiple delays, the Uncharted film is due in theatres on July 16, 2021. It’s a prequel of sorts to the games, and it does not follow any of the storylines from Naughty Dog’s games. The movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Venom).
Uncharted is not the only Naughty Dog video game that is being adapted for the screen. HBO is working on a TV series based The Last of Us, and it’s apparently getting fast-tracked. HBO recently announced that the project, which is written by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl, The Hangover series) and game director Neil Druckmann, has been picked up for an entire season instead of just a pilot.
As for the Uncharted video game series, 2017’s Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the most recent entry in the franchise. Naughty Dog has said it will not make any more Uncharted games, but that doesn’t mean the series is finished; another studio could make Uncharted 5.
