The Uncharted movie has bounced around quite a bit, and now it has yet another director, Shawn Levy of Netflix’s Stranger Things.
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures has gotten Shawn Levy to direct the upcoming Uncharted film. Levy’s most recent success was with Netflix’s Stranger Things, where he was Executive Producer and directed a few episodes. He is also known for Big Fat Liar, Cheaper by the Dozen, and the Night at the Museum franchise.
The most recent script for the film had been penned by Joe Carnahan, and he was most likely going to direct, but he has instead moved on to work on Bad Boys For Life with Martin Lawrence and Will Smith.
Hopefully Sony can get something set in stone. With the final Uncharted game having been out for a while now, the hype train is leaving the station, and if they want to hitch a ride, they’ve got to act fast.
