Now, this is a project that has been hanging out in development hell for several years. Ever since the first Uncharted game came out in 2007 there have been rumors of a movie. It wasn't until the most recent years that there has been any movement on it and Sony decided to cast Tom Holland in the role. Ever since then we haven't learned that much more about the project but it seems that Sony is confident the production will get off of the ground soon. According to The Hollywood Reporter Sony has given the Dan Trachtenberg directed movie a prime December 18, 2020 release date.
At the moment there isn't that much in that slate but December is becoming a prime spot for studios to release movies that would normally feel more at home in the summer. Aquaman and the Star Wars franchise basically claiming the entire month are fairly common now. Right now the Uncharted movie will have to compete with Coming 2 America and the latest adaptation of West Side Story. Several days later, on the 23rd, we have the live-action adaptation of Cruella from Disney and The Croods 2 to compete with. That isn't a lot right now but that month is going to fill in fast. To meet that release date Sony is going to have to start production on this movie sometime soon perhaps after Holland has finished PR work for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Sony also announced so more release dates and shifted a few things around. Kevin Hart and Paul Feig's Fatherhood got a April 3, 2020 release date and Kay Cannon's Cinderella will open on Feburary 5, 2021. They also moved Escape Room 2 from April 2020 to August 14, 2020.
