The Uncharted movie might be just as cursed as the treasures Nathan Drake keeps coming across.

Dan Trachtenberg has exited the director's chair for Sony's "Uncharted" movie starring Tom Holland, with the studio taking meetings with top filmmakers and production starting early next year. Several directors and writers have left the project over the years, including David O. Russell, Neil Burger (Limitless), Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), writer Joe Carnahan (Bad Boys III), and Shawn Levy (A Night at the Museum, Stranger Things).

Deadline reports that Sony is already closing in on a replacement and that Holland remains attached to star despite all the Spider-Man drama that has unfolded over the past 48 hours.

The script comes from screenwriting duo Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man 2008) and Rafe Judkins.

Sony previously announced that Uncharted would come out on December 18, 2020.

Holland, who made a name for himself with his version of superhero Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is now looking at uncertainty over his future as the web-slinger after a break up between Sony and Disney-owned Marvel Studios. Sony said Hell No, and wrenched Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps, the crew can do it again next time around - without any Marvel clout.
