Sony Pictures has rescheduled the Uncharted movie to June 30, 2017

Sony Pictures has just revealed its movie release calendar for 2017, and it’s interesting to see that the Uncharted movie has been pushed all the way to June 30, 2017 by Sony Pictures. At present, there is no information on the director or the actor reprising the role the Uncharted series protagonist, Nathan Drake.

Back in June, it was revealed via a round of reports that the Uncharted movie had been in development hell for a long time. The former director, Seth Gordon, had quit the project according to The Wrap and Heroic Hollywood.

It was also revealed that Sony Pictures executive Tom Rothman had reportedly decided to take the movie in a “new creative direction”, with a smaller budget in mind.

The Uncharted movie was originally slated for a June 2016 release. However, given that not even the cast has been finalized at this point, pushing the movie a year further to June 2017 seems to be the only logical thing for Sony Pictures to do.

Uncharted’s film debut is set to take Nathan Drake on a journey to discover the whereabouts and secrets of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city.
