Travis Knight recently signed on to shoot the adventure adaptation following the departure of previous director Dan Trachtenberg, but scheduling issues have reportedly forced the "Bumblebee" filmmaker to step down from the gig, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"10 Cloverfield Lane"'s Trachtenberg had previously boarded the project as a replacement for Shawn Levy, who had originally agreed to take charge of the movie in October, 2016. He departed in December, 2018 after a delay in production.
A new director has yet to be announced, but the news is likely to force producers to push back its currently scheduled release date of December, 2020.
Holland is still attached to play treasure hunter Nathan Drake in the film, based on the popular PlayStation video game franchise, while Mark Wahlberg also remains involved as close friend Sully.
