Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Black Mirror) will direct Tom Holland in Sony Pictures‘ Uncharted movie, according to Variety. Shawn Levy dropped out of the director’s chair for the video game adaptation in December and will take on Free Guy instead.
Based on the Naughty Dog video games for PlayStation consoles, the film is said to take its basis from the sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in which the young Nathan “Nate” Drake (Holland) encounters his partner Victor Sullivan for the first time.
There have been four Uncharted games from Naughty Dog and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment, including Uncharted (2007), Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (2009), Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (2011), and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (2016). A standalone game, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, was also released in 2017 and featured the characters Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross.
The movie will be a co-production between Arad and Atlas Entertainment Production, and will be produced by Charles Roven, Alex Gartner, and Ari and Avi Arad. Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker wrote the script.
