We’ve been writing about the Uncharted movie for a decade now, but the project has just lost – by our count – its fifth director. According to Deadline, former Totally Rad Show host Dan Trachtenberg has parted ways with the film, although Spider-Man star Tom Holland is still signed on to play the part of Nathan Drake.
The newly established PlayStation Productions – a sub-division of Sony Interactive Entertainment, designed to adapt the organisation’s copious array of intellectual property to film and television – will now front the flick, which has been stuck in development hell for what feels like an eternity.
The Japanese giant is forging ahead regardless, and it hopes to have a new director in place by the end of the summer. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2020, but don’t be surprised if that date gets pushed back. At this point, we just can’t see the film ever coming out; are any of you optimistic about this project at all?
