Another day, another hiccup in the saga of the Uncharted movie. You will remember we reported that Seth Gordon (of Horrible Bosses, etc) would be directing the movie, which would be released in June 2016? Well. He isn’t. Not anymore, anyway, according to Entertainment Weekly. Rumour had it that Gordon was irritated by budget cuts to the film (making it more akin to Resident Evil rather than Indiana Jones, allegedly). However, this has been denied by io9. Whatever. The film isn’t happening.
So we are back almost at square one. No director, no cast, and now, (barring a miracle), no release date.
Is it time to call time on the whole idea? Tomorrow marks six years since the film was first announced. Since then it has been nothing but directors leaving and appalling cast suggestions. Last year offered hope with an actual release date announcement, a shooting schedule, and the knowledge that the ever perfect Chris Pratt had been offered the part (although, alas, he turned it down).
Seriously, kill it already before it gets even more embarrassing.
