PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has revealed that the forthcoming Uncharted movie and The Last of Us TV show are ‘just the beginning’ of Sony’s efforts to expand its storytelling to new media and reaching new audiences.
The Uncharted movie will star Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake and will be joined by Mark Wahlberg as Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan in an origins story. The film is currently slated for release on July 16 if all goes well.
Meanwhile, HBO’s The Last of Us series will follow the events of the original game and feature Joel and Ellie as they journey across a post-apocalyptic US. The series has yet to attract a concrete release date.
Here’s what Ryan had to say during Sony’s CES 2021 briefing:
This is just the beginning of the expansion of our storytelling into new media and even wider audiences. Sony is a creative entertainment company and entertainment has never been more important.
Who knows what else Sony has up its sleeves in regards to new media pushes, but we’re definitely going to be keeping an eye on things.
