Uncharted movie loses another director, Tom Holland remains

Dan Trachtenberg

No reason was provided for why for why Dan Trachtenberg is no longer working on Uncharted, but according to Deadline, Sony is moving quickly to find his replacement for the adaptation of the same-named video game property by summer's end. Deadline's sources say Sony is on the move to lock in another director by the end of the United States summer (our winter). The report didn't include any names, but it wouldn't shock me to see Sony turn to either Travis Knight or Rupert Wyatt, both of whom were finalists for the Venom 2 job that ultimately went to Andy Serkis. Sony said Thursday that Trachtenberg remains a "valued" director at the studio, where he recently just directed the pilot for "The Boys".

The Uncharted movie is in a bit of trouble, again. Meanwhile, PlayStation Productions - a new studio set up at Sony a year ago - will produce the Uncharted film, which will be its first production. Headed by Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan, PlayStation Productions has come on to produce alongside Chuck Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad.


Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins have penned the script. Trachtenberg boarded the project in January this year after Shawn Levy exited it over scheduling issues. In case you missed it, Sony broke up with Marvel Studios after the latter's parent company, Disney, reportedly asked for a bigger chunk of the Spider-Man franchise.
