Uncharted movie got delayed again, yes really

Uncharted and Last Of Us Multiplayer Shutting Down

Uncharted, from Columbia Pictures, was initially slated for March 5, 2021, but has now been delayed to October 8, 2021. The reasons behind the delay are pretty obvious. After suffering years of delays, rewrites and other logistical problems, the adventure flick has had to postpone filming due to COVID-19.

The film has gone through years of problems, with at least six directors having taken on the project before bowing out for various reasons. That was until Ruben Fleischer (ZombielandVenom) stepped in. The film finally looked to come back on track in 2020, but COVID-19 had other plans for the world.  The Uncharted movie was supposed to start shooting this month. Just for context, the Uncharted film was first announced in 2009.

This is just one example of the film industry, along with the rest of the global economy, taking a beating as a result of the spread of novel coronavirus in 2020. Since January when the pandemic first began, nearly 1 million people have contracted the COVID-19 disease, and the respiratory diseases has killed nearly 50,000 people.

And with many countries going on near-total lockdowns it was all but guaranteed that the films shooting in this Spring season were going to run into trouble. Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Morbius have also been forced to freeze shooting schedules as a result of the ongoing spread of the virus.
