After many production misfires, the cinematic adaptation of the best-selling video game franchise Uncharted loses its grip on its 2021 release due to COVID-19 caution.
One of Sony Pictures' tentpoles for 2021, Uncharted (2022) follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) and his exploits to retrieve his bounty. Booting the adaptation to February 11, 2022, from its previous summer release date, Sony is following the word of Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has confidence that the United States will see its rebound in the fall to come.
Studios were gunning for a return to pre-pandemic life in the spring and summer of 2021, but it seems that isn't the given case, and it's a smart call for the forefronts of film production to jump on a later release to keep them ahead of the game.
Uncharted, according to IMDb, is "a prequel to the games, starring Holland as a younger Drake, showing us details of how he came to meet and befriend Sully (Mark Wahlberg)."
The film hosts a history of rewrites, delays, and redirector changes, but at long last, it seems like it will see the light of day - eventually. It's almost appropriate that the famously fickle movie is delayed even more. Directed by Ruben Fleischer and starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, and Antonio Banderas, Uncharted is now to release on February 11, 2022.
