Sony's ailing Uncharted movie has hit another stumbling block. The film, which has been in development for more than a decade and has had a total of six different directors at the helm, has seen its release date pushed back to next year.
According to Deadline, Sony confirmed that Uncharted will now release on March 5, 2021, around three months later than its previously-slated debut on December 18, 2020. The studio was reportedly working to ensure the film released ahead of young Nathan Drake actor Tom Holland's next Spider-Man film, which is due in summer 2021.
Uncharted's move is part of a suite of changes across Sony's upcoming film programme, but that does little to downplay the issues the film has already had to deal with. Despite an impressive cast and a beloved franchise behind it, the project has been plagued with issues, most clearly signposted by the sheer number of directors who have taken it on.
