10 Cloverfield Lane’s Dan Trachtenberg has been attached to the Uncharted video game adaptation for quite some time, and I was eager to see what a filmmaker who has mostly dabbled in science-fiction would be able to do with a more Indiana Jones-esque adventure film. Given his chops and star Tom Holland’s current hot streak, I think it could help elevate him to the next stage of his career.

Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be, and according to Deadline, Trachtenberg has officially stepped down as helmer of the film. However, the studio isn’t waiting on this one, and interviews are already underway to find a replacement.

There is no word on why Trachtenberg left the project, but considering Trachtenberg only just directed for Sony with The Boys, I can only imagine this was an amicable departure, though that’s just speculation on my part.

But there’s another interesting piece of news that has to do with PlayStation Productions, the new studio that was set up last year by Sony. Now, Uncharted will be seen as the first feature of the new banner, which will really put pressure on it to set the tone for things going forward.
