Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann Gives His Opinion on Uncharted Film’s New Director

Naughty Dog's vice president Neil Druckmann took to Twitter in admiration for Uncharted's newest director Dan Trachtenberg stating that he is "excited to see what he does with Nathan Dake"

Recently, we reported on The Uncharted film which will be produced by Sony, found another director after Shawn Levy stepped down and Dan Trachtenberg taking his place. Neil Druckmann has now aired his opinion on what he thinks of the replacement via Twitter.

Mr.Druckmann, who directed and wrote Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End along with Bruce Straley and Josh Scherr, has given praise to the movie adaptation’s new director Dan Trachtenberg. In the Tweet, Neil stated that he was a big fan of Dan’s where he was excited to see in what direction he would take Drake on.

Previously, Neil wasn’t that keen and offered little support for the Uncharted movie. The screenwriter at the time Joe Carnahan made a claim that Naughty Dog had the films backing, but Druckmann fired back, obviously displeased, stating that the studio didn’t even know the film was happening nor that Naughty Dog gave it their blessing.

Thankfully, his mood has changed a lot more now and he seems to be onboard with the adaptation. Although there is no word at this time on when the film will kick off production officially other than claims that Sony is hoping to begin production for Uncharted by the end of 2019, but Spider-Man’s Tom Holland is still set to star as the lead role with some people holding out hope it would have been Nathan Fillion who starred in the 15 minute long fan-made film we witnessed last year. It seems as though Tom is here to stay!

I’m personally excited to see where director Dan Trachtenberg will take us with Uncharted being a huge fan of the title for many years, but as always DualShockers will keep you up to date on any reports regarding the process of the Uncharted film, so keep your eyes peeled.
