For the fourth time, Sony’s Uncharted film is searching for a brand new director. Director Dan Trachtenberg, who was introduced in on January 2019 after director Shawn Levy stepped down, has left the undertaking.
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is already searching for Trachtenberg’s alternative and plans on bringing in a brand new filmmaker by the top of September. Tom Holland remains to be connected to star as Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake–albeit a youthful, much less skilled model of the online game character. Production on the Uncharted film is scheduled to start early 2020.
This is the second time in as many days that points have arisen in a significant Sony undertaking related to Holland. Disney and Sony have come to an impasse regarding the Spider-Man film franchise, leading to Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige being faraway from future Spidey movies. Whether Holland’s Spider-Man stays within the MCU stays to be seen, although the language used to explain the tear in Disney and Sony’s partnership appears to suggest that won’t be the case. Given how Spider-Man: Far From Home ended, it is going to be fascinating to see how the MCU could also be restructured if Holland’s removing does really occur.

Russell have additionally been on the helm of Uncharted at one level. Like the director’s chair, the pen behind the script has switched hands a few times too.
