Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, The Boys, Black Mirror) has replaced Shawn Levy to helm Sony Pictures’ Uncharted adaptation, Variety has confirmed.

Uncharted will be a prequel to the game series, starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) and taking its basis from the sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception wherein the young thief first encounters his partner Victor Sullivan and in essence sets up the events of the entire game franchise.

Despite previous drafts by the likes of Mark Boal (The Hurt LockerZero Dark Thirty), Oscar nominee David O. Russell, Doctor Strange‘s Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, Safe House‘s David Guggenheim, and Joe Carnahan, this new version of the film will bring on a new writer to rework the new-found premise. The most recent draft was written by Jonathan Rosenberg and Mark Walker.

Based on the action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive, the story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is escalated when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets.

Uncharted is an Arad/Atlas Entertainment Production, with Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, and Ari Arad producing. Jonathan Kadin is overseeing the film for Columbia.
