Dan Trachtenberg, who was attached to direct the Uncharted movie, has now exited the film according to Deadline which also reports that Sony is moving quickly to find a replacement and that the film will still go ahead.
Tom Holland is still attached to Uncharted – he might have a bit more free time now after the news that Sony and Disney have parted ways on the MCU partnership.
More as we have it.
Dan Trachtenberg has stepped up to be the latest director of Sony’s Uncharted movie, which has been struggling to get off the ground for a few years now. He replaces Real Steel and Stranger Things director Shawn Levy, who left the project just before Christmas to helm Ryan Reynolds action-comedy, Free Guy. Levy had been the latest man attached, with David O. Russell also in the running at one point – that could have been quite the ride, eh!
Trachtenberg, who had an unlikely smash hit with 10 Cloverfield Lane, has mainly been pottering around with TV episode projects like Black Mirror‘s ‘Playtest’ and a pilot for Amazon’s The Boys since that film’s success, but he’s now set to take on the big screen story of young Nathan Drake, as imagined by Sony and starring their co-parented Spider-Man, Tom Holland.
There may be a potential script rewrite in the air before this really gets moving, but we’ll keep you updated.
