Uncharted Movie Hasn't Started Filming Yet
The cast and crew are taking precautions to begin shooting soon.
The long-troubled Uncharted movie hasn't started production yet, Sony confirms. The cast and crew are preparing to start shooting soon and will take special precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speculation ran rampant after Spider-Man: Far From Home and future Nathan Drake actor Tom Holland posted a photo with the caption "Day one #uncharted" on Instagram although production hadn't actually begun yet. A Sony representative confirmed that production on Uncharted hasn't begun, but they're "hoping to start soon."
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the adventure movie is set to begin production on July 20, although the pandemic could push things back again. The movie will be unable to shoot large crowd scenes and will require crew that isn't on camera to wear masks. But with COVID-19 cases on the rise, productions across Hollywood could face more delays.
The Uncharted movie has been in development for over a decade, shuffling between several directors and screenwriters. Notable industry names-- including Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali, and Tati Gabrielle--have seemingly joined the Uncharted cast. The movie was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, jumping back from its March 5, 2021 date to a new October 8, 2021 release.
