Director Dan Trachtenberg Exits the Uncharted Movie Adaptation
The movie adaptation of Uncharted can never catch a break.
Following Deadline’s report of Spider-Man leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s now being reported that director Dan Trachtenberg has exited the movie adaptation of Uncharted.
Despite Trachtenberg’s exit, Tom Holland is still set to star as a younger Nathan Drake. Additionally, Deadline says that Sony is already underway of finding a replacement and production is set to start early next year.
The film adaptation is being written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Rafe Jenkins. Additionally, the film is being produced by Chuck Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Garner, and Ari Arad. This Uncharted adaptation is also set to be produced by PlayStation Productions, which was formed by Asad Quilbash and Carter Swan.
This isn’t the first time a director has exited the Uncharted adaptation. Back in December, director Shawn Levy excited the project and David O. Russell was attached to the film at one point. The closest we’ve gotten to an Uncharted short film by actor Nathan Fillion. With the success of a video game film like Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, it’s possible for a good video game film to release. If there’s one video game that deserves the film treatment, it’s Uncharted. The film is set to be released by Sony Pictures.
While there’s no official release date for the film, we’ll be sure to let you know when it gets one. In the meantime, the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy are available now for PlayStation 4.
