Columbia Pictures, a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, has announced plans to release the Uncharted film on June 10, 2016.

As reported by zap2it earlier this week, shooting for the film, which is based on Sony's Uncharted video game franchise for PlayStation, will begin in early 2015. According to director Seth Gordon, the script is in "a really good place," but the studio has yet to find its lead actor to play Nathan Drake.

“I want it to be a great actor,” Gordon said. “That’s number one, and then if it’s someone who has an actual jaw, that’s even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There’s no way we’d do the inverse of that where it’s somebody famous who can’t [act].”

Gordon also said the script will “honor the mythology of the game [through the] most interesting stuff from the first one and build from there,” adding the movie will contain “some stuff that isn’t in the game.”

The studio also announced today that The Sinister Six will hit theaters on November 11, 2016. As a result, The Amazing Spider-Man 3 was pushed back two years to 2018.
