MOVIE NEWS – And they keep going: Sony might have already found the person who they believe could put together the Uncharted film adaptation, which is slowly becoming more pathetic than promising at this point…
The last time we wrote about Uncharted, it was because its director at the time, Travis Uncharted has left the position behind (and he’s not alone with it – the adaptation was announced more than a decade ago!), and Deadline believes Sony might have found the successor of Travis, as the project is running a race against time: Tom Holand, who would be Nathan Drake in the film, is going to be busy with the next Spider-Man film in the summer (as he is the protagonist in it).
Deadline thinks the new director could be Ruben Fleischer. Let’s see the films he’s directed for the big screen: Zombieland: Double Tap (2019), Venom (2018), Gangster Squad (2013 – he was also the executive producer), 30 Minutes or Less (2011), Zombieland (2009). He made more for television, but we’re not going into that here. The reason why Sony wants him to be the director is that he managed to put together two films for the company recently (namely Zombieland 2 and Venom – Venom’s sequel, which should launch this year, is directed by Andy Serkis).
The cinematic adaptation of Uncharted should be the first PlayStation Productions project (we’re not even sure at this point – we’ll believe it when we see it), making its heads, namely Asad Qizilbash and Carter swan the executive producers. This company is meant to bring several PlayStation IPs to cinemas and television alike. Aside from Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg will also star in the movie – he’ll be in the role of Victor „Sully” Sullivan, the friend and mentor of Nathan Drake.
Uncharted’s release date is unknown – it’s become the Duke Nukem Forever amongst films…
