Tom Holland’s Uncharted Movie Loses Sixth Director
It’s been one rollercoaster of a ride for the upcoming Uncharted movie based on Naughty Dog’s titular video game franchise. Starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, the live-action film is expected to premiere December 18th, 2020, but a recent report sheds light on another mishap – it’s losing its sixth director since the movie’s public reveal.
Despite how bewildering it is to hear that the Uncharted movie is losing yet another director, Deadline reveals that Holland’s commitment to the next Spider-Man movie placed schedule constraints on shooting. Since the respective Marvel film begins production in Summer 2020, Travis Knight has left the set and the team is on the look-out once again. This will most likely end up with the film being delayed, but that doesn’t necessarily spell trouble for Uncharted altogether. In other words, it may not hit theaters until 2021.
However, sources told Deadline that filming and production will continue strong with Holland as Nathan Drake and Wahlberg as Sully. Behind the Uncharted movie are producers Alex Gartner and Charloes Roven from Atlas Entertainment, Avi Arad and Ari Arad from Arad Productions, as well as Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions. It sounds like a full house of talent, so here’s to hoping it hits theaters without too many more bumps in the road.
