Uncharted Movie Lands in Theaters in June 2016

Sony Pictures pushes back The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and slides the Uncharted film into its summer release slot.

The first-ever movie based on the Uncharted game series will make its debut in theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony Pictures announced today, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

This news coincides with Sony delaying the next Spider-Man film, The Amazing Spider-Man 3, until 2018. It was previously set to hit theaters on the same date that Uncharted will now occupy; another Spider-Man-themed movie, The Sinister Six (which features six of Spider-Man's adversaries) will launch later in 2016.

The Uncharted film's director, Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief), said recently that filming for the movie will get underway early next year. A leading actor has yet to be chosen; Mark Wahlberg was set to play Nathan Drake at one point, but that fell apart when a previous director, David O. Russell, dropped out of the project. Another director, Neil Burger, was subsequently attached to the film but also decided to drop out.

Gordon said last week that he "love[s] the complexity and frankly the sophistication of the storytelling in the game," but doesn't want to simply retell the story featured in the games. "I feel like the people who play the games and know them well don't want to just see the same story told," he said. "You want extra shades."

A new Uncharted game, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, is currently in development at Naughty Dog for PlayStation 4. It does not yet have a release date, and Sony has not indicated whether it plans to tie its release into that of the film.

Do you wish the games industry announced release dates as early as the film industry? Let us know in the comments.

Tyler Hoechlin for Drake. definitely. Eric Dane or J.K Simmons for Sully.

Walberg could pull it off acting wise. Combine his acting with someone who looks the part and it would not be a bad movie.

I just wanna know who's gonna play my dude Victor "GD" Sullivan? They better cast him right or it's not gonna be worth watching.

i just hope the creative team at naughty dog at least plays a small part in the writing or directing of the film otherwise it won't be as good as the games.

"Sony Pictures pushes back The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and slides the Uncharted film into its summer release slot" The last two Spidey movies haven't done bad at the box office and I really liked them both, so I don't see why Sony made this move. Although, the last two movies fared quite a bit worse than the previous Spidey movies and people haven't been all that enthusiastic about them (why does people never like what I like /rant), so perhaps that's why, but I think there are other reasons behind Sony's decision.

I may love your consoles, but as a Marvel fan who enjoys the new spider man films, I have to say... You suck Sony!

Danny O'Donoghue from 'The Script' looks exactly like Nathan Drake.

I think Chris Pratt would be a great Nathan Drake. He has the humor and since he's in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World I can see him doing the action.

Dylan McDermott!!!! Ever since I saw him in american horror story I thought of uncharted and on.how.much he looks like him in the game

You guys should use the.guy from american.horror story the show..he looks exactly like him!!!

I don't think Bradley Cooper would be a good choice. Maybe David Boreanaz or Jensen Ackles definitely!! They both have Drake's build, personality and look.

Wow, that's a big delay for Siper-Man.

You push back a well known money maker in Spiderman for a video game movie that is more likely to fail? Smart.

Mark Walhbuerg would have been great. I'm sure the movie will suck anyway.

I don't know what worries me more...the lack of any mention for Nathan Fillion or a director known more for documentaries than action/adventure films.

Wait a minute - this is actually going to happen, surely that can't be right.

I thought this movie was made a couple decades ago starring Harrison Ford.

Nathan Fillion sp? has been trying for this long before Mark Walberg was greenlighted but, now no one wants to be attached to this possible bombshell not sure he still wants to. the Malcom Reynolds was born to play this part, well created, well created for another show but would do really well in an uncharted movie. Also he pushed hard to play in the green lantern movie- it was a crying shame he did not get casted over whats his name from the movie 'Waiting'. 

I cannot believe he doesn't get more of the parts - Nathan Fillion is the common mans man superhero.

And if that doesn't work out then it's gotta be Fillion.

@demic1914 Although honestly, I wouldn't mind some of the voice actors from the game reprising their roles in the movie. They did it all through motion capture, so I'm reluctant to label them as just "voice actors". At least Emily Rose as Elena. She's got a lot of live-action cred, and she resembles her character quite a bit.

@Hurvl If  you think about it, Tobey's spiderman series and TASM series so far have had similar track records.  1 and 2 for both series were critically well received and did well at the box office.  Maybe they want to take their time and not rush the 3rd installment so it doesn't end up like Tobey's Spiderman 3.

@Hurvl The only good Toby Mcguire Spider Man film was the first, and that's only if you saw it when it came out. Now it's made out of cringe-worthy.

@edgewalker16 Nathan Fillion is perfect for nate his firefly character is basically the same, he would definitely do it justice

@omgmike23 I can see that... he has the humor/serious hybrid look that could pull it off.

@omgmike23 No you're not, ever since I saw him in The A-Team and the Hangover films I thought that =P


Would be spot on if he was Nathan Drake, sounds, looks and could act like him no problem with his cocky and barely giving a sh^t ways.
