Travis Knight in Talks to Direct Tom Holland in the Uncharted

-

Sony Pictures is negotiating with Travis Knight (BumblebeeKubo and the Two Strings) to direct the Uncharted movie, according to Deadline. Spider-Man star Tom Holland remains attached to play Nathan “Nate” Drake in the film, which is expected to begin production early next year.

Previous directors who have been attached to the video game adaptation include Dan Trachtenberg, David O. Russell, Seth Gordon and Shawn Levy.

The project will become the first feature production of Sony PlayStation Productions, which was set up on the Sony lot last year. Headed by Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan, PlayStation Productions has come on to produce alongside Chuck Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad.

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.

The movie, written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins, has been set for a December 18, 2020 release.

There have been four games in the franchise 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.
