According to Deadline , Sony decided to shift the shooting of the picture in favor of the next film about Spider-Man, in which Tom Holland will also play the main role.
Due to schedule conflicts, Travis Knight (Bumblebee, Kubo) will be forced to leave the project.
At the same time, Sony still intends to bring the film about the young Nathan Drake to the screen, and Mark Wahlberg is still assigned to the role of Sally. Moreover, the studio is looking for actors for a leading female role and the role of a villain.
The film was announced back in 2014, and it was due to be released in 2016. Previously, they wanted to put Dan Trachtenberg (Cloverfield 10) and Sean Levy (Very Strange Things).
Moreover, this is not the first iteration of the project. In another version of the picture, which was done by David O. Russell, Drake must be an adult, and Wahlberg should also play it.
