The film adaptation of one of video games most successful of the last decade, has gone through all the ups and downs possible during pre-production and has now returned to remain without a director, according to reports from The Hollywood Reporter.
Travis Knight was chosen for the study after having directed the latest film of the franchise ‘Transformers’ (‘Bumblebee’), but the problems of agenda would have caused the film-maker has abandoned the project. In addition, it is expected that Tom Holland return as Spider-Man in a new tape that will be released on July 16, 2021, something that could delay the release of ‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ if it is not fast as a replacement for Knight.
The other actor attached to the film is Mark Wahlberg, playing Sully, the friend and mentor of Drake (Holland). Wahlberg was initially the first choice to play the protagonist of the video game before the studio decided to tell the teenage years of Drake, in place of his adulthood.

Five directors of different have passed by the tape before Knight (Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, Shawn Levy, David O. Russell, Dan Trachtenberg) and the script is written by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins, and it is expected that shooting to begin in early 2020, so it is expected that the film reaches the big screen on December 18, 2020.
