UNCHARTED Faces Another Obstacle as Production Has Been Halted for Six Weeks Due to Coronavirus
Sony's Uncharted just can't catch a break, and after losing six directors and missing a couple of release dates, pre-production on the Ruben Fleischer–helmed flick has been halted for six weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic spreading across the globe.
According to Variety, the troubled movie based on Naughty Dog's game series was about to start shooting next month in Berlin, but Sony execs recently decided to delay the shoot in light of the COVID-19 crisis.
Considering that the film is supposed to debut on March 5, 2021, it's safe to say that the long-delayed Uncharted won't meet its release date, just like almost every other Hollywood movie that had been in the works before the outbreak, including Matrix 4, The Batman and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Tom Holland's Uncharted will serve as a prequel to the award-winning quadrology, putting the spotlight on Nathan Drake's youth and the origin of his friendship with Victor "Sully" Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg.
Antonio Banderas (The Mask of Zorro, Pain and Glory), Sophia Ali (Truth or Dare, Grey's Anatomy) and Tati Gabrielle (The 100, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) will also star in Uncharted, if it actually ever happens.
