“It’s been going so well.”
In an Instagram Live broadcast by Tom Holland this morning, the actor revealed that filming for the beleaguered Uncharted movie is “going so well”.
Talking about his various upcoming projects – which includes confirmation that he’s currently sporting a big bruise in a “revealing area” courtesy of a recent stint recording the action movie – Holland touched briefly on progress on the Uncharted film.
“Filming is going so well,” Holland said (thanks, Comic Book). “The film is like, everything I dreamed it would be. I mean, I don’t know if you guys played the games, but I was such a huge fan of the game, and it’s been going so well.”
It’s been something of a rollercoaster journey for the Uncharted film ever since we first heard of it back in 2009. After losing six directors ahead of Sony’s planned release date of December 2020 (which was then delayed again due to COVID-19), things weren’t looking great for the project, and at one point it looked like filming would start without a director. But in March a seventh director appeared in the form of Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Venom).
In February, Holland said the film told the origin story of the games, and the script was “one of the best [he’s] ever read”. Perhaps there’s hope yet for this cursed production – and if all goes to plan, we may finally see it released in July 2021.
“I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games,” Holland said at the time. “So if you played the games, you haven’t seen what’s going to happen in the film,” he said. “And if you haven’t played the games, you’re going to enjoy the film because it’s information that everyone else is getting at the same time. But I’m super excited to make that movie and it’s been a long time coming.”
