Dan Trachtenberg No Longer Attached as Director of Sony’s ‘Uncharted’ Movie

Sony’s live-action video game adaptation of Uncharted has officially lost its director.

According to DeadlineDirector Dan Trachtenberg has exited the film and the studio is moving quickly to try and find a replacement. Tom Holland is still attached to star, and a new director is expected to be found by the end of summer, with meetings already beginning. Production is expected to begin early next year.

The film is being written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway, writers behind Iron Man, Transformers: The Last Knight, and Men in Black: International, and Rafe Judkins, who has written episodes for the Marvel series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Chuck. The Uncharted film will follow Nathan Drake as a young man and will depict his evolution into the cocky yet effective treasure hunter that he’s so well known for.

The video game series was created by Naughty Dog as a PlayStation exclusive and has sold over 41 million copies to date. The series began with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and followed with four more titles: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Trachtenberg directed the 2016 Cloverfield sequel, 10 Cloverfield Lane, as well as one episode for the hit Netflix horror series Black Mirror and the pilot episode for Amazon’s newest superhero series, The Boys.
