Looks Like Uncharted Is Hitting More Setbacks Due To Tom Holland’s Spider
While he’s unquestionably best known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, naturally Tom Holland has his hands in various other cinematic endeavors, such as the now-released Spies in Disguise and upcoming movies like Dolittle, Onward and Cherry. Holland has also been attached for several years to star as Nathan Drake in the frequently-delayed Uncharted movie, and now it’s looking like we’ll have to wait even longer for this video game adaptation due to Holland’s commitments as the current live action Web-Slinger.
Because Tom Holland is lined up to shoot the Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel next, this means that Uncharted’s principal photography will need to be delayed. As a result, Deadline reports that only will Uncharted by pushed further back on Sony Pictures’ calendar (i.e. December 18, 2020 is off the table), but director Travis Knight is also expected to depart.
Known for his work at the stop-motion animated studio Laika and for helming the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, Travis Knight was announced to be directing Uncharted back in September. Alas, he now joins the ranks of other directors who’ve left Uncharted, like Shawn Levy and Dan Trachtenberg, since it first entered into development more than a decade ago.
