Tom Holland’s Uncharted has lost director Travis Knight due to the British star’s busy Spider-Man schedule.
One of the busiest stars in Hollywood right now, Tom Holland has been set to star as a young Nathan Drake in the live-action adaption of Uncharted for quite some while now. The Uncharted video game series may be one of the most critically and commercially acclaimed in history, but the journey to bring the franchise to big screen has been disastrous. The Uncharted film has lost over four directors in the past decade and its latest victim is Bumblebee helmer Travis Knight. Some of the directors who will join Travis Knight in the Hall of Fame of not directing Uncharted are David O. Russel, Neil Burger and most recently, Dan Trachtenberg.
This time, however, it has nothing to do with differences between the director and the studio or a shoddy script. Rather, Deadline reports that Tom Holland’s insane schedule and adherence to film the third solo Spider-Man film has resulted in director Travis Knight bowing out of his Uncharted directorial duties. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg (who was actually attached to star as Nathan Drake back in 2008) will still remain on Uncharted, with the current screenwriters staying on as well.
Sony is leading the production on what was supposed to be Travis Knight’s Uncharted. With Sony prioritizing Tom Holland’s third Spider-Man film, there’s no indication as to when the Uncharted film will begin rolling cameras. Working on a big, star-driven film like Uncharted was the perfect next step for Travis Knight following the success of Bumblebee, but now that his schedule has opened up, perhaps we’ll see him return to Laika so we can get more brilliant animation films?
As for the third Spider-Man film, director Jon Watts is set to return alongside star Tom Holland. Spider-Man’s role in the MCU was briefly questionable during the summer as Sony and Disney could not reach an adequate deal to accommodate the character. As time went on and fans got restless, Tom Holland managed to be a key-figure in reuniting both studios together to bring Spider-Man back to the MCU.
