Masters Of The Universe Has Been Delayed Again, But That's Good News For Tom Holland's Uncharted

Masters Of The Universe Has Been Delayed Again, But That's Good News For Tom Holland's Uncharted

Sony has been trying to get two film adaptations off the ground for a long time: Masters of the Universe, which will star Noah Centineo as He-Man, and Uncharted, which would see Tom Holland taking on the role of Nathan Drake. Well, word’s come in that the former movie has been delayed yet again, but that will benefit the latter movie.

When we last checked, Sony had slotted Masters of the Universe for March 5, 2021, while Uncharted was supposed to drop on December 18, 2020. Well, according to Deadline, neither movie will make those release dates. Instead, Uncharted has been moved to that March 5 date, and Masters of the Universe has been taken off the calendar entirely.

So while Uncharted is now coming out three months later, Sony is still determined to deliver it to the masses. A delay seemed inevitable, as last month, Bumblebee’s Travis Knight, who was tapped to direct Uncharted back in September, exited the project due to scheduling conflicts. He was the latest in a long line of directors who have come and gone on Uncharted, which has been in development since 2008.

Tom Holland, who’s been a Sony mainstay for nearly half a decade now thanks to his time as Spider-Man, was announced to be playing Nathan Drake in Uncharted back in summer 2017. Then last November, Mark Wahlberg, who was attached as the same character long before Holland entered the picture, was reported to be in talks to play Nathan’s mentor, Sully. As for who will replace Travis Knight as director, supposedly Ruben Fleischer, who already has a relationship with Sony thanks to Venom and the Zombieland movies, is being considered for the job.
