Travis Knight Will Try and Make The Uncharted Movie Happen

The sixth time’s the charm, or at least that’s what Sony is hoping for, as they’ve tapped Bumblebee helmer, Travis Knight, to direct the Uncharted film. 

Just a little over a month ago, word came out that Dan Trachtenberg had dropped out of the long-gestating Uncharted movie adaptation. Keen to keep their release date and production start time, the studio has moved quickly to find a replacement.

Travis Knight, who made a great Transformers movie in Bumblebee, along with the impressive Kubo and the Two Strings, has signed on to direct the film. The film will still star Tom Holland (who’s already having a great day) as Nathan Drake and production is slated to start early next year.

If all goes well, this time, Uncharted will finally hit theaters on December 18, 2020. What do you think of this new director choice?
