Neil Druckmann, for obvious reasons, didn’t want to reveal more about the production so he wouldn’t spoiler.
Incidentally, Naughty Dog’s creative director isn’t the only filming location he needs to visit in the near future, as an adaptation of The Last of Us saga, filmed by Sony, PlayStation Productions and HBO under the direction of the maker of the Chernobyl series, is in the works.
The film Uncharted will hit theaters on July 16, 2021, and tells an origin story about young Nathan Drake. In addition to Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg (Victor Sullivan), Antonio Banderas and Sophia Ali also star in the film, directed by Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland: Kill and finish, etc.).
In the field of video games, the last part of the franchise was Uncharted 4: Thief’s End, which was a free PS Plus title in April.
