Tom Holland’s Spider-Man schedule could cause Uncharted movie to lose its director and get a new release date

It looks like the web has been tangled for Tom Holland’s Uncharted movie as his schedule for Spider-Man is causing issues for the video game adaptation.

Holland is due to star as treasure hunter Nathan Drake in the upcoming movie, with Transformers Mark Wahlberg also attached to star as Sully.

However, according to Deadline, Holland’s Marvel schedule is crunching Uncharted‘s timeline, which looks set to cost it director Travis Knight (Bumblebee).

It also seems the movie could be pushed back as well, though as things stand Holland and Wahlberg are still attached, and studio Sony still intends to move forward with a new director and release date.

This isn’t the first time Uncharted would have lost a director, with Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) first attached before leaving in August.

Trachtenberg previously revealed that the movie would focus on Drake’s life before the events of the video game.

    How TSA bomb-sniffing dogs are trained
    The Transportation Security Administration — or TSA — employs more than 1,000 explosives detection canine teams at any given time. But before they’re deployed to one of the many mass-transit sites across the United States, they must graduate from the TSA National Explosives Detection Canine Program. Insider spent a day with the program at the TSA Canine Training Center, located at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to see how the TSA trains both dogs and handlers. The dogs receive 24 to 32 weeks of training and work in a variety of environments, including mock aircraft and airport terminals. Trainers use classical conditioning to teach the dogs to search for odors from explosive materials. After six to eight weeks of training, the dogs are paired with a handler, whom they’ll finish the course and graduate with. Roughly 90% of all canine teams graduate from the course.

    How realistic animatronics are made for movies and TV
    Spectral Motion has been making animatronic puppets for movies and TV shows since 2002. Even if they don’t fully end up in the final shot, they can make for great references for both visual effects artists and the actors in front of the camera. Spectral Motion’s head of animatronics, Mark Setrakian, takes the characters sculpted and painted by the company’s artists and gives them the most realistic movements possible. This has included making giant troll hands compress and handle objects for “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” manipulating robotic bits and foam skin to make a wolflike snarl for “Lady in the Water,” and making the Demogorgon’s face petals move on the first season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” Advancements in technology allowed Spectral Motion to push the kinds of terrifying movements it gave to the animatronic White Spike puppet who would be acting alongside Chris Pratt and Yvonne Strahovski in “The Tomorrow War.” Follow Spectral Motion: https://www.instagram.com/spectralmotion/ https://www.youtube.com/user/spectralmotioncom https://www.facebook.com/SpectralMotion/ http://www.spectralmotion.com/ Follow Mark Setrakian, Mark Viniello, and Kevin McTurk: https://www.instagram.com/mark_setrakian/ https://www.instagram.com/vin1fx/ https://www.instagram.com/thespiritcabinet/

“I have been approached with different versions of this tale and have always been not that interested in it because I didn’t really want to trace the game,” he said.

“I didn’t really feel like it was at all worthy of making a video game adaptation, if we’re just gonna copy what the game is and just serve people a lesser experience than what they’ve experienced in such an incredible way.

“If Naughty Dog so chose to make another Uncharted game featuring Nate and Sully… this movie’s story is probably the story that they would want to tell.”

Uncharted is currently slated to be released in cinemas on December 18, 2020.
