Sony’s long-awaited Uncharted movie gets yet another release date, and a new star in Tom Holland.

Uncharted, of course, is a universally acclaimed and commercially successful action-adventure third-person shooting platform game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony. The movie adaptation was first revealed to be in the works at one of Sony’s divisions with the help of Columbia Pictures way back in 2008. After this, the directors, cast, and of course, the release date has been continuously changed.

The film has been picked up and dropped year after year. It was almost like a never-ending cycle. It has been scheduled for a release multiple times, the first one being June 10 of 2016, then it was moved to June 30 of 2017. After that, it was removed from Sony’s release calendar due to a lack of both cast and director.

Now, yet another release date came out from The Hollywood Reporter; if nothing goes wrong, we just might be able to finally see it on December 18 next year. The movie will be directed by 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg and written by Joe Carnahan. It is a prequel of the Uncharted series and Spider-Man’s Tom Holland was chosen to play the role of young Nathan Drake.

The role was previously dropped by Mark Wahlberg and rejected by Chris Pratt. What’s curious is someone seriously wanted that role and even campaigned to have it for years, but never got it: Nathan Fillion. He starred as Nathan Drake in the very well received 15-minute fan-made film of Uncharted that was directed by Allan Ungar. According to GWW’s report, Chris Hemsworth, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Pine and Woody Harrelson are in talks to play the role of Victor Sullivan, also known as Sully. The Uncharted film is expected to stand up against Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake from Fox which, will be released on the same day.

The game is about fortune and treasure hunter Nathan Drake’s adventures in the hopes to unveil the mystery of many mythical treasures and lost cities. During these adventures, he won’t be able to avoid getting into fights with other hunters and bands of thieves.

Let’s all hope to see this movie next year. For now, we’ll be on the look out for more info on the Uncharted film. What are your thoughts on this movie? Tell us more about it.
