In spite of losing a director, hiring a temporary director and rewriting the script, the Uncharted movie is still steaming along towards its planned December 18, 2020 release date. Current director Dan Trachtenburg is looking to do Naughty Dog’s popular game series justice without retelling the game storyline. Trachtenburg talked with Gamespot about the movie, saying he wants the story to be different from the games. He feels that simply copying what has already been done in the games is not a good way to introduce Nathan Drake to the big screen. While adamant against rehashing what has been established in the games, Trachtenburg is confident that the work on the movie will be the story of Nate and Sully that Naughty Dog would want told.

Sony announced in May 2017 that Tom Holland, the current Spider-Man, will take on the role of a young Nathan Drake when he first meets Sully prior to the events of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

A Last of Us movie is also in the works.
