The Uncharted from Sony Pictures has a new director. Deadline reports that Travis Knight, the director of Bumblebee and Kubo and the Two Strings, will now helm the film, following the recent departure of Dan Trachtenberg.
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.
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.
