Box office shuffle: Uncharted to hit cinemas in 2016

While we still don’t know much about the Uncharted movie, we do know the date that it should be hitting cinemas. Sony has shuffled a few things around, so the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling PlayStation title is now eyeing off a big reveal on June 10, 2016.

That timeslot had previously been allocated to The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which has now been pushed back to 2018, while another Spider-Man movie, The Sinister Six (which focusses on villains, obviously) is due out November 11, 2016.

At this stage, the Uncharted film is a bit of an unknown quantity. While Mark Wahlberg was named as Nathan Drake, he left the project alongside original writer/director David O. Russell. Then, Limitless director Neil Burger was attached, but he left soon after.

Now, we have a new director – Seth Gordon, known for Horrible Bosses and video game documentary The King of Kong, partnering with David Guggenheim at the writing desk (Safe House, Bad Boys 3).

Doug Belgrad, president of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group explains:

June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It’s just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film.

While nothing’s confirmed just yet, that “right place” may well be in the middle of E3 week. Quite the coup for a video game adaptation, wouldn’t you say?
