Tom Holland's Uncharted Movie Gets A New Director
The director of Bumblebee steps up for Uncharted.
The Uncharted movie from Sony Pictures has a new director--again. Deadline reports that Travis Knight, the director of Bumblebee and Kubo and the Two Strings, will now helm the film. This follows news that the movie's most recent director, Dan Trachtenberg, would be leaving the project, again calling into question whether it will ever actually be made.
Trachtenberg departed the movie last month, citing creative differences. He followed a long line of director changes, including Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum), Seth Gordon (King of Kong), Neil Burger (Limitless), and David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook). A number of screenwriter and script changes have occurred as well.
The movie will star Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) as a younger Nathan Drake. This is the second piece of major news surrounding Holland to break in quick succession, as earlier today Sony and Disney announced that the third Spider-Man movie will be co-produced after all. Holland will also appear in an additional MCU film outside of this upcoming third standalone entry, which is slated for 2021.
The long and sometimes tumultuous development hasn't prevented Sony Pictures from putting a date on the project. Uncharted is slated for December 18, 2020. Of course, that could always be delayed depending on a variety of factors, including the possibility that Knight has a new vision for the movie.
