Sony’s long in development Uncharted, a film based on the popular Playstation series of the same name, finally looks set to begin filming this February. Not only is principal photography commencing at the start of the new year, but the studio will likely be shooting in Berlin, according to an exclusive from the folks over at Discussing Film.
The Uncharted adaptation has gone through a number of directors since its inception. Joe Carnahan, Shawn Levy, and Dan Trachtenberg were all once attached to the project, but each decided to part ways with Sony for one reason or another. Despite the shake-ups, Tom Holland has remained on board since 2017. The film will now be guided by Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight. Knight also helmed the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, which earned a warm reception from critics and fans last December.
Sony and Naughty Dog’s Uncharted games follow the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake as he travels the globe in search of long lost fortunes, cities, and historical artifacts. The series has earned rave reviews from the gaming community, with many outlets calling it one of the best action-adventure franchises in the industry.
With the film entering production relatively soon, more casting announcements can most likely be expected before the year is out. No release date for Uncharted is currently set.
