Just when it seems like the Uncharted movie can finally start productions, after a more than rocky start, it looks like things are slowing down once again for the film.
Shooting for the Uncharted live-action adaption was scheduled to begin next month in Berlin, but Sony ultimately made the decision to put the production on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It is currently unclear when exactly filming will begin once again but the movie’s 5 March 2021 release date will most likely be affected.
The film stars Spider-Man actor Tom Holland as young Nathan Drake, with Mark Wahlberg playing Drake’s mentor Sully. They will be joined by fellow actors Antonio Banderas, Tati Gabrelle, and Sophia Ali. Sony has also secured Venom and Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer to help direct the movie.
Uncharted is not the first film to have its productions affected due to concerns surrounding the virus, with films like No Time to Die and Mission Impossible 7 putting a pause on their production. TV shows from Netflix and Disney+ have also been put on hold.
