UPDATE: Chung Hoon-Chung has joined the crew as cinematographer for the film. Chung is known for his previous work as cinematographer on ‘IT’, ‘Zombieland 2: Double Tap’, ‘Earthquake Bird’ and ‘Hotel Artemis’. He has recently wrapped as cinematographer on Edgar Wright’s next film ‘Last Night In Soho’.
We have learned that following the film’s release date push from December 2020 to March 2021, Tom Holland and Sony’s ‘Uncharted’ film is eyeing to begin filming in March in Berlin and Spain.
Sony Pictures has went through a number of directors during the preparation for ‘Uncharted’ including Joe Carnahan, Shawn Levy, Dan Trachtenberg and Travis Knight. It is has been reported that Sony has been eyeing Ruben Fleischer to direct. Fleischer has previously directed ‘Zombieland’, ‘Venom’ and ‘Zombieland 2: Double Tap’ for Sony Pictures. We have learned that Fleischer has finalised talks with Sony to direct the feature film adaption of ‘Uncharted’ for the studio.
Ruben Fleischer is boarding the project following the departure of Travis Knight regarding scheduling conflicts. The film currently stars ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ star Tom Holland as the main character of Nathan Drake, a charismatic yet obsessive treasure hunter who journeys across the world to uncover various historical mysteries and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor, Sully.
Sony Pictures are currently on the search for the female lead of the film, casting will likely be finalised for that role sometime in February. That is assuming that Fleischer doesn’t join one of many directors to leave the film.
