Antonio Banderas signs up for Sony's Uncharted movie


Seventh director is also confirmed

Against the odds, Sony continues to make positive strides toward the production of its Uncharted movie, a cinematic adaptation of the Naughty Dog adventure series. The latest news (broken by Variety) is the casting of legendary actor Antonio Banderas, along with confirmation of the movie's director, the seventh person to pick up the mantle to date.

Banderas, star of such movies as Desperado, Evita, Philadelphia, and The 13th Warrior, joins a cast which includes Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan. While Banderas' role is unconfirmed, it seems a snug fit that El Mariachi might be playing the villain of the piece.

Venom director Ruben Fleischer has agreed to take over behind the lens, following on from previous directors such as Dan Trachtenberg, Travis Knight, Shawn Levy, and Seth Gordon among others. Conflicting schedules have been the most regularly stated issue in getting Uncharted off of the ground, although Sony seems confident that the adaptation will hit the big screen early next year, having been pushed back from its initial Holiday 2020 release date.

Uncharted is scheduled to release in theatres on March 5, 2021.
