How many directors were attached to the Uncharted movie over the years?


The Uncharted movie project seems to have returned to some form of pre-production again, as Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures has tapped Shawn Levy to direct.

Shawn Levy most recently served as an executive producer and director of a couple of episodes in the first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, and is due to direct more in the next. His other credits include producing the sci-fi movie Arrival, with Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner, and directing the Hugh Jackman robo-boxing movie Real Steel.

Perhaps more interestingly, Levy was among the original creators of the Night at the Museum franchise, which says he at least knows a thing or two about movies of that nature.

Levy will replace Joe Carnahan, who wrote the most recent script draft and was previously eyed for the job.
