A movie about 'Uncharted' has been in development for an amazing 13 years, but now we're finally starting to see the project come to life with the leakage a new trailer (or parts of it), showing how an iconic moment in the game franchise starring Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) will be on the big screen of cinema.

In the 40-second clip that is going viral on social media, the adventurous protagonist is seen regaining consciousness – not unlike the disaster that marks the opening scene on the train in 'Uncharted 2: Among Thieves', it should be noted – and hanging precariously on a cargo plane.

However, as much as the sequel alludes to what is considered the best game in the series, the scene in question is a clear reference to Stowaway's chapter in 'Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception' – something we've always suspected would look great in cinema, even without the desert.

The trailer has been taken down and reposted on social media such as Twitter and TikTok throughout the night of Wednesday (20) and Thursday morning (21), as Sony Pictures tries to contain the leaks as they occurred. with 'Spider-Man: No Return Home'.

The live action project was initially supposed to be released on December 18, 2020, before being pushed back to March 5, 2021, when director Travis Knight left the project. The Covid-19 pandemic then postponed the launch to October 8, 2021, before being brought forward to July 16, 2021 and finally resting on a release date in February 18rd, 2022 (Ufa…).

Technically, an 'Uncharted' feature has been under construction in one form or another since 2008, and the current (final?) version of the project shows Ruben Fleischer, from 'Venom' and 'Zumbiland 2', in charge – the seventh director to be linked to the project,
