The Uncharted movie adaptation has gone through quite a bit of development hell, with the project seemingly getting canceled and revived time and time again. However, it looks like things really are happening. Just a couple months ago, it was reported that Joe Carnahan would write the script for the movie. And today, Deadline reports that Shawn Levy has signed on to direct the movie.
‘Levy has been busy executive producing and directing episodes of the Netflix breakout series Stranger Things, and he’ll direct several more episodes in Season 2 while casting up a film that has long been seen as a big global franchise play for the studio. Levy also produced the upcoming Denis Villenueve-directed Arrival, which stars Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner.’
Well, I don’t exactly have high expectations for this movie adaptation, but it should be fun to see who Sony Pictures ends up casting for Nate and crew.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is now available on the PS4.
