The film version of Uncharted has a release date set in theatres on June 10, 2016, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The video-game adaptation by Sony Pictures Entertainment will replace the Amazing Spider-Man 3, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The movie is said to be directed by Seth Gordon, known for The King of Kong, Identity Thief, and later Horrible Bosses.
Meanwhile, the latest Spider-Man film had been pushed back by two years, for additional work, and to make room for the Sinister Six movie, which is slated for release in November 2016.
The Uncharted adaptation was previously directed by director David O. Russell to his leaving to direct the Oscar nominated American Hustle, back in 2011. Then, Neil Burger was later attached to the project before reportedly leaving in 2012.
Mark Wahlberg was originally slated to play Nathan Drake in the film, but Gordon stated that Wahlberg isn’t a part of the production, and the movie is looking for a new lead.
Likewise, a new draft of the movie script has been developed following an earlier version by the writers of Disney’s National Treasure franchise Marianne and Cormac Wibberley. The new screenplay is being written by David Guggenheim, and the film will be an Arad/Atlas Entertainment production, produced by Charles Roven, Arad and Alex Gartner.
