Tom Holland is probably not having the best week in the world.

With the Sony-Disney deal that allows Spider-Man to be part of the MCU falling through, it’s already been a little rough. Now, another one of his films has lost its director.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane) has exited the director seat for Uncharted. The film, slated for a 2020 release, is based on the popular video game series of the same name. Holland is set to star as the character of Nathan Drake, a professional treasure hunter with a mysterious past who is highly self-educated on a number of subjects.

Holland is, at this time, the only cast member announced for the project. He is also still attached to the project. Sony, who released the game and is making the film, is currently looking for a new director. Production is slated to start in early 2020 with a December 2020 release date.

This is all predicated on if they can find a director by then.

Uncharted has been in development for years now. Trachtenberg originally replaced Shawn Levy as the director for a script written by Art Marcum & Matt Holloway and Rafe Judkins.

THR did not provide a reason for Trachtenberg’s exit in the article.

Uncharted is still slated for release on Dec. 18, 2020.
