Uncharted The Movie bumps Spider-Man 3
A movie adaptation of Naughty Dogs hit series, Uncharted, has been pencilled in for release on June 10, 2016, a date formerly occupied by The Amazing Spider-Man 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sony Pictures originally had the next Marc Webb-directed Spider-Man film set for that date, but it has been pushed back to 2018 to make space for The Sinister Six, a villain-focused spin-off that's due for release in November 2016.
The Uncharted film, being directed by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), was then moved into the June 10, 2016 spot.
"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted," said Doug Belgrad, president of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group.
"It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."
Uncharted is currently in pre-production, with the latest draft of the screenplay being written by David Guggenheim (Safe House, Stolen.) The cast is yet to be revealed, but filming is due to begin early next year.
