After Sony Pictures announced earlier today that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was being pushed to 2018, the studio gave Uncharted the superhero sequel's old release date on June 10, 2016. Uncharted currently has the date to itself, falling between another Sony project, the animated comedy Sausage Party on June 3 and Disney-Pixar's Finding Dory on June 17.
Here's what Sony Pictures President Doug Belgrad had to say about Uncharted's new release date.
"June 10 is a great date for Uncharted. It's just the right place for this exciting action-adventure film."
Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief) revealed last week that production on Uncharted will begin in early 2015. This action-adventure is based on the successful video game series that follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who goes on a quest to find the lost city of El Dorado. Mark Wahlberg was once attached to play Drake, but he is no longer involved. »
The future timeline of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise and the planned spin-offs has been uncertain since the second film in the franchise didn't do quite as well as Sony Pictures hoped. Originally, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was dated for June 10th, 2016, and the studio was figuring when they wanted to throw the spin-offs into theaters after that. But now Sony has decided to mix things up by setting The Sinister Six for release on November 11th, 2016 and then following it up with the third film in the primary franchise (likely summer) in 2018. But the vacated summer 2016 date won't be empty. Read on! Sony has decided to fill the June 10th, 2016 with their video game adventure adaptation of Uncharted, directed by King of Kong and Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon and written by David Guggenheim (Safe House). Of course, the studio is still trying to figure out who will play the main character of Nathan Drake. »

Looking to broaden its Spider-Man franchise, Sony has dated spin-off “Sinister Six” for Nov. 11, 2016 as the next tentpole in its key property — while moving back “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ two years to 2018.
After modest box office results for “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” the studio thinks “Sinister Six” will expand the Spider-Man universe by bringing in villains, making Sony a stronger competitor against the likes of Disney/Marvel’s “Avengers” and WB’s Justice League superheroes in the coming years.
The studio has also slated “Uncharted” for June 10, 2016 — which had previously been the release schedule previously held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3.”
Sony made the announcements Wednesday on the opening day of Comic-Con. The studio first revealed the “Sinister Six” and “Venom” spinoff projects in December, »

After being stuck in development for several years, the video game adaptation Uncharted is finally moving in the right direction, with Seth Gordon coming on board to direct back in February. While the production still hasn't found the right actor to play Nathan Drake yet, the filmmaker revealed that production will start in early 2015.
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."
The director added that they, "just got the script to a really good place," while adding that the movie will be "very international" with settings "all over the world." David Guggenheim (Safe House) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.
The project is adapted from the hit Naughty Dog video game that follows treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, who sets off on a quest to find the famed city of El Dorado, »
"He's working on an outline right now. Hopefully we'll get him started on a screenplay shortly," he said.
Bruckheimer added that he is hoping to convince Bay to reunite with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on the project: "We'd love to get Michael Bay [but] he's very busy right now. Hopefully we can twist his arm and get him in there."
"It's been in the works for 35 years!" he said of the former. "We really want to make it, Tom is engaged and so is Paramount, so we »

Not much is known about the story, although the title refers to the illegal, submersible crafts that drug cartels use to smuggle their products, particularly between Colombia and Mexico. These underwater ships are so small they are able to sneak past radar systems undetected.
We first reported on the project back in November 2011, when late filmmaker Tony Scott was attached to direct. Joe Carnahan was rumored to be circling the project in February 2013, and we reported in October that Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) was in early talks to direct, although it doesn't seem that a deal was ever reached.
Following the death of Top Gun director Tony Scott, several projects were left in limbo. One such film was the crime thriller Narco Sub, set in the always-dangerous world of drug smuggling. The title refers to custom-made ocean-going self-propelled submersible vessel built by drug traffickers to smuggle drugs, usually from Colombia to Mexico. Following Scott's death in 2011, the project laid dormant until last fall when Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity director was in early talks to be at the helm. Now Deadline reports 20th Century Fox and Scott Free have set Antoine Fuqua to take over the project now. Fuqua is just coming off The Equalizer with Denzel Washington (watch the first trailer) and has the boxing drama Southpaw with Jake Gyllenhaal coming up next. The script comes from David Guggenheim (who wrote Safe House) and has Simon Kinberg producing the film as well as revising the script with Anthony Peckham. »

With "The Equalizer" coming this fall (check out the first trailer), and the boxing pic "Southpaw" starring Jake Gyllenhaal brewing, it looks like director Antoine Fuqua is putting another project on his plate. Deadline reports that Fuqua will take the helm of "Narco Sub," a movie formerly attached to the late Tony Scott, and one that once had Doug Liman taking a look at it. With a script from David Guggenheim ("Safe House"), with revisions by Simon Kinberg ("X-Men: Days Of Future Past") and Anthony Peckham ("Sherlock Holmes") the story will center around the submersible vehicles South American drug cartels use to smuggle cocaine into the United States. No word yet on if/when this might roll, and Fuqua is apparently also considering "The Magnificent Seven" remake at MGM (yep, it's still happening) so here's hoping "Narco Sub" is compelling enough to keep him away from that bad idea. And also catching Fuqua's eye? »

The long-gestating thriller Narco Sub has a new director. Tony Scott was initially developing the film as his next directorial effort before his unfortunate passing, then Doug Liman entered talks to take the helm last year. Liman subsequently moved on to a number of other projects, and now Deadline reports that Training Day and Olympus Has Fallen director Antoine Fuqua has become attached to direct the pic. Penned by Safe House scribe David Guggenheim, the Ridley Scott-produced 20th Century Fox film takes place in the drug world and revolves around the semi-submersible crafts that South American cartels use to smuggle cocaine into the U.S. Fuqua most recently directed The Equalizer, and based on early buzz for that Denzel Washington-fronted pic, Sony is already prepping a potential sequel. Fuqua is next set to direct the boxing film Southpaw and is apparently mulling over The Magnificent Seven remake at MGM, »

Exclusive: Fox has attached The Equalizer helmer Antoine Fuqua to direct Narco Sub, the David Guggenheim-scripted thriller that has long been a priority project at the studio. It’s set in the dangerous world of drug smuggling, and the title refers to the semi-submersible crafts that South American drug cartels have been using to ship cocaine into the U.S. without having to deal with land-based authorities.

The sheer number of projects that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has at any given time is baffling, and frankly, it’s surprising that the man gets anything done. He oversees several long-running film franchises and TV shows, most of which have sequels in the works. Last week, he offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, and now we have news about two more: Bad Boys 3 and National Treasure 3.
The fact that a third Bad Boys film hasn’t happened yet is pretty surprising, considering that the first one grossed $141 million in 1995, and its follow up in 2003 brought home $273 million. It’s not like director Michael Bay is against sequels, and he certainly likes to make money, so why haven’t we seen a third film now that we’re 11 years past the last installment?
According to Bruckheimer, all of »

Last week, producer Jerry Bruckheimer offered updates on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Beverly Hills Cop 4, but those are just two of his highly-anticipated projects that are currently in development. During a new interview with Collider, the producer offered updates on a pair of sequels, National Treasure 3 and Bad Boys 3.
Both projects have been in development for several years, even though their predecessors, 2007's National Treasure: Book of Secrets ($457 million worldwide) and 2003's Bad Boys II ($273 million worldwide) fared quite well at the box office. However, it still may be quite some time before we see either of these sequels in theaters.
Bad Boys 3 has been in the works for over 10 years, with Sony recently hiring screenwriter David Guggenheim (Safe House) to work on the script back in December. Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that the project's real problem has to deal with the timing being off, »
Is the world ready for another dose of "Inconvenient Truth"s? According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers are talking a sequel to the 2006 Oscar-winning film that documented Al Gore's campaign to open eyes to the consequences of global warming. Producers Lawrence Bender and Scott Z. Burns are open to the idea: Despite the desire, a sequel is far from a sure thing, and producer Scott Z. Burns says he "would only support doing a follow-up if we have a really, really amazing way of attacking the issue and reinvigorating it." "God, do we need one," environmental activist Laurie David told THR about the possibility of a sequel. "We have extreme weather events every other week. The update has to be incredible and shocking." A sequel isn't a bad idea, as Paramount and Participant's film grossed $50 million worldwide, and won two Academy Awards -- Best Documentary for director David Guggenheim, and »
