Tom Holland To Star In Uncharted Movie Set For 2020 Release
It's finally arrived. After years of chatter about the Uncharted movie, it's finally been confirmed that it will be released next year.
Sony Pictures has announced that the film will hit cinemas in the US on 18 December 2020, and will be based around the Naughty Dog video game franchise.
Spider-Man actor Tom Holland will play treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who will no doubt be travelling all around the world, discovering ancient mysteries in the search for his next fortune.
Back in December is was confirmed that filmmaker Shawn Levy had stepped down from his role in the production of the film. It took them a while to find someone to step up to the helm after Levy bailed, and he wasn't the first to back out of the job.
Then in January, in big news for fans of the franchise, 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg confirmed that he would be the one to take on the task.
A few big names from the acting have also been linked with the much anticipated movie. It wasn't that long ago we were talking about Mark Wahlberg and Robert De Niro potentially starring in the adaptation, and while those names fell by the wayside, the film appeared to be making decent progress.
For the live-action adaptation, Trachtenberg will be taking on what is widely regarded as one of the greatest PlayStation series of recent generations.
But - in what can best be described as a surprise to everyone - things are about to change drastically for fans of Uncharted, and for many other titles from the developer.
Multiplayer servers for a number of Naughty Dog-made PlayStation 3 titles - namely The Last of Us, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - are still live, right now.
But, if you were about to dive in for the first time, a word of warning: don't get used to it. Because these servers are in their final days. After almost 10 years of constant activity, Naughty Dog is calling time on its previous-gen multiplayer fun.
On 3 September, Naughty Dog will be pulling the plug, and said servers will finally flatline - so make the most of it while you still have the chance, as you'll be twiddling your thumbs for three months while you patiently wait for the film to come out.
