Tom Holland has offered an update on the adaptation of Uncharted, which he insists will finally solve the curse of the video game movie.
The year in film for 2019 is nearly over — pending Star Wars, Cats, and Jumanji of course — with the movie industry delivering dozens of memorable films, whether for good or bad reasons.But now it’s time to put the movies of 2019 to one side and take a look at the year to come. It’s a year without the Star Wars mega-franchise and with the Marvel Cinematic Universe undergoing a period of reinvention as the dust settles in the wake of the biggest movie ever made.There are plenty of blockbusters to look forward to in the coming 12 months, but there’s also an entire Oscar season to work through and a whole host of interesting, smaller movies that will make a big impression when they land in cinemas.Here are just 50 of the best films to keep an eye out for next year.Read more:Look back at the most anticipated films for 2019Most incredible actor transformations of 2019Notable Hollywood deaths in 2019
It sounds as though Uncharted is setting the bar pretty high, and wants to be a new generation's 'Indiana Jones'.
Nathan Fillion’s long been rumoured for the project but that’s unlikely to happen. Marky Mark may not have the acting dexterity (sorry Mark) but what arguably he lacks in ability he certainly makes up with in dedication and physical attributes. Perhaps not the obvious or even the most popular choice, Duhamel earns his place having had a recurring role in the ‘Transformers’ movies where he plays Lt. Colonel William Lennox, so has the escaping-huge-killer-nasties-and-spraying-machine-gun-bullets thing down to a tee.
Sony Pictures has had high hopes for its big screen adaptation of hit video game ‘Uncharted’ for some time, and last week hired Shawn Levy to finally get it off the ground. Joe Carnahan, the project’s previous director and current writer, has been discussing the film’s potential - describing the action-adventure as the “anti-'Indiana Jones’”. 'Uncharted’ is a PlayStation series starring charming adventurer and roguish type Nathan Drake, whose love of history and thirst for treasure often leads him to trouble.
Earlier this year ‘Warcraft’ joined ‘Need For Speed’, ‘Hitman’, ‘Max Payne’ and ‘Prince Of Persia’ as further failures in the attempt to buck this trend. Over the last few years the likes of David O. Russell, Seth Gordon, and Neil Burger were working with Sony to try and bring it to the big-screen, while Joe Carnahan was hired at the start of the year to write a new script. With less than a year until its planned release date, and with production having not even started and Joe Carnahan put on to ‘Bad Boys 3′ by Sony, it was inevitable that ‘Uncharted’ would be sacrificed.
