The adaptation of Uncharted to the cinema lost another director. According to Deadline, Travis Knight will no longer be responsible for directing the film, which was delayed in production, creating a scheduling conflict for the director.
Sony is prioritizing production of the third Spider-Man feature, which will feature Tom Holland as the protagonist. In Uncharted, Holland will play Nathan Drake, the main character of the games, so the film's production date had to be postponed. Sony has not commented on the director's departure.
With this, Knight becomes the sixth director to abandon the project. Still in 2019, Dan Tractenberg (10 Cloverfield Street) left the direction of the film. In 2018, it was Shawn Levy's turn (Stranger things). Production also had Seth Gordon (Baywatch: S.O.S. Malibu), Neil Burger (Divergent), and David O. Russell (Joy: The Name of Success) moving away from production in 2015, 2012 and 2011, respectively.
According to Deadline, the project will not be abandoned by Sony. The studio is set to pursue a new director in the coming weeks and announce a new movie release date sometime in 2020. This will be the first partnership between PlayStation Productions and Sony Pictures.

Meanwhile, Sony will give preference to Holland's third Spider-Man movie to hit theaters in 2021. The film is part of a new deal with Marvel Studios to keep the character in the MCU. Spider-Man: Far from Home, opened in July 2019 and became Sony's biggest box office, which justifies the studio's interest in prioritizing the Neighborhood Friend.
