So apparently IMDB has added Toby Gard as a character writer. Not sure if I buy this. Also not sure if it’s a good thing if true.

Yes, he was added several days ago. I don't think he's being hired as a character writer (necessarily), I think he's just being credited as one, as the original creator of Lara. Although, I don't think he was credited on the 2018 film. However, anyone with an account can edit IMDB, so I wouldn't take it too seriously.

I agree. It is strange to credit him at all though. He has no legal rights to the character or franchise that I know of.

Alexandre Willaume was Conrad Roth in IMBD for 5 months or more. IMBD is not reliable!

It was already discussed, but even if that Toby Gard credit remains on IMDB even after the movie's released it will be just a "based on the character by" credit, he most definitely won't be involved in the project.

It's like Rhianna Pratchett being credited on the IMDB page of the 2018 movie because that movie was based on the game she wrote the script for.

Sony has mover the Uncharted movie to be in direct competition with, TR2 I expected they'd pull this ****. Hopefully it gets delayed again.

Seriously? That can do damage to the TR movie. Two treasure hunter movies in the same month

The best strategy imho is to make trailers with vague ‘Coming This Fall’ or ‘Coming This Spring’ kind-of info without giving any actual date. Then they could delay it a month or two after Uncharted premieres...

If Uncharted ever premieres.

I don't expect it to be a critical success to be honest given its rocky production history.

Truth be told, I wouldn't mind if Tomb Raider was also postponed a bit to have more post-production time.

Still, quite honestly I will only believe that is actually Uncharted's release date when that movie actually keeps a director and starts shooting.
