Sony Pictures has shuffled around its release date slate, with the most notable change being a three-month delay of the long in the works film adaptation of the “Uncharted” game franchise.
The film, which hasn’t begun shooting as yet, will now open March 5th 2021. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg are slated to star as Nathan Drake and Sully, respectively, in the feature. The project lost filmmaker Travis Knight late last year and now has Ruben Fleischer (“Venom,” “Zombieland”) set to take over as director.
Sony had originally marked that date for its “Masters of the Universe” film adaptation but has now pulled the He-Man reboot not just off that date but entirely from its calendar.
Even longer in development than “Uncharted” (a new He-Man film has been in development on and off since 2007), the new ‘Masters’ still has Noah Centineo attached to star and more recently there were talks that the studio might sell the project to Netflix.
Sony also delayed “Happiest Season” and “Fatherhood” by a few days each.
