2020 has just begun and there has already been a flurry of delays in the gaming sphere. Many of the anticipated video games like Cyberpunk 2077, Dying Light 2, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel's Avengers have been delayed to mid to late 2020. Joining this unfortunate streak is Sony Pictures' live-action Uncharted film. The news comes directly from Sony Pictures, confirming that the movie that has been on and off in development since 2008 has been pushed to a March 2021 release window.

According to Deadline, Uncharted's team has had a tough time keeping up with the December 18, 2020 release after losing yet another director.

The movie has lost its sixth director in a row since 2008. Director Travis Knight, who had been working on the film for 12 years, was forced to pull out from the project due to internal conflicts with Tom Holland's Spider-Man schedule. Replacing Travis Knight could be Venom and Zombieland director, Ruben Fleischer.

Other directors that worked on the anticipated Uncharted film include Stranger Things' Shawn Levy, and 10 Cloverfield Lane's Dan Trachtenberg. Travis Knight took over the directorial duties in September.

However, it isn't certain as to who is going to lead the project now, although Ruben Fleischer seems most likely. Whoever the new director for the project is, he or she will be the seventh person to take on the directorial role and lead the project.

To any Uncharted fans reading this, please be informed that the film's story will not be an adaptation of the original games. Therefore, it is best not getting attached to the cast, crew, or any floating story ideas, details, or rumors. From all the information we know about the film, Uncharted will revolve around a young Nathan Drake, played by Tom Holland, and Sully, played by Mark Wahlberg. The movie will be set in a timeline before the events of the first Uncharted game.
