Uncharted movie had a rocky start

The film adaptation of Sony’s biggest franchise went through a series of changes during the production process. The film has so far replaced six directors due to various reasons, also hindering the production process. Further, Tom Holland’s commitment to the third movie of the ‘Spiderman’ franchise has also led to the film being pushed to a yet another date.

The issues of clashing dates saw Travis Knight, director of ‘Bumblebee’, exit the franchise. But despite the changes, lead actors in Mark Wahlberg, Tom Holland, Sophia Taylor will continue to be a part of the movie.
