The Uncharted Movie Has Finally Started Shooting

The Uncharted Movie Has Finally Started Shooting

The project finally emerges from development hell.

Several years later, and after more directors than I can count, the Uncharted movie has finally started shooting. Tom Holland dropped a teaser for the movie earlier today, which confirmed the movie adaptation has finally entered production.

The post from Holland comes from his official Instagram account. It's a really simple teaser that you can see for yourself just below, with the word "Nate" appearing in bold red letters emblazoned across fabric, on what's likely his chair on-set.

Speaking of Sully, the wizened character will be played by Mark Wahlberg in the adaptation. The rest of the cast surrounding Holland and Wahlberg were first announced earlier this year, and consist of Academy Award-nominee Antonio Banderas, Sophie Ali of Grey's Anatomy, and Tati Gabrielle of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

The Uncharted movie begins filming, of course, after losing six total directors over the course of an extended stay in development hell. After the project lost David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, Shawn Levy, Dan Trachtenberg, and Travis Knight, Venom director Rueben Fleischer was the latest to step up to the plate earlier this year, and as far as we're aware, he's the director currently attached to the project.

There's still a lot we ultimately don't know about the Uncharted movie. What we do know is that the story will follow a younger Nathan Drake, in a prequel of sorts to Naughty Dog's game (the studio has reportedly had no involvement with the film though). As of right now, the movie is still set to launch on July 16, 2021.
