Sony halts production indefinitely on the Tom Holland led Uncharted film, which was in pre-production and scheduled to start shooting next month. Uncharted is an adaptation of the popular video game series of the same name. The story follows Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who travels the world to find historical artifacts.
The video game adaptation was about to start shooting next month in Berlin, but in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, execs felt it was best for the safety of all involved to delay the shoot indefinitely.
The current version of the script is written by Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, and Ruben Fleischer, known for directing Venom, is still attached to direct.
Alongside Holland, the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Tati Gabrielle, Sophia Ali, and Antonio Banderas. The plot is said to be inspired by the fourth game, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
It's currently unknown when the shoot will start up again and if it will impact the March 5, 2021, release date.
