Deadline reports that Tom Holland’s Spider-Man schedule is crunching Uncharted’s timeline and sources said that will cost the picture Travis Knight, the Laika animation wiz who made his live action directing debut on the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee. It looks like the movie will get pushed, but Holland and Mark Wahlberg remained attached.
Sony still reportedly intends to move forward with the film with a new director and a new release date on Uncharted, an action-adventure based on the top selling PlayStation video game series created by Naughty Dog and published by PlayStation. The current draft of the screenplay is by Rafe Judkins and the Iron Man team of Art Marcum & Matt Holloway.
Uncharted extends Holland’s relationship with the studio. It remains a priority project for the studio, which has seen several directors come and go. The actor will next shoot the third Spider-Man installment in the summer.
