The Uncharted film has been on one heck of a roller coaster to bring the film adaptation to reality since being revealed back in 2009. Most recently the film lost Shawn Levy (Real Steel) as the director and left fans hopeless of what fate holds for the prolonged PlayStation film. Now the next contender to bring the Nathan Drake motion picture to the silver screen has been revealed to be Dan Trachtenberg.
Well-known from his more recent film 10 Cloverfield Lane, he also directed 2012’s More Than You Can Chew and the ‘Playtest’ episode for Netflix’s Black Mirror. Despite the reassuring news for the film, no information has been released regarding when fans can see the videogame movie on the big screen.
With the film’s protagonist given the role to Spider-Man Homecoming’s Tom Holland to play Nathan Drake, expectations on when the film might be arriving is a long way from now as the sequel to Holland’s 2017 film has yet to kick off the press tour for the upcoming Spider-Man flick.
This seems to be a pattern for Naughty Dog film adaptations as the Last of Us film is currently in development hell as well. With the film being announced to start production back in 2014, fans have been patient for the film of 2013’s Game of the Year winner to debut at some point in the future. Last year Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann despite his original intentions feel a film adaptation would devalue the original game’s characters, but is still currently in development.
If this gives you any hope for the film’s future with the newest director: Trachtenberg previously directed the fan film Portal: No Escape which stands over 21 million views since last year.
