Sony’s live-action adaption of Uncharted has been boiling for quite some time. At one point, David O. Russell and Mark Wahlberg were attached to give the film a go, but now all will be transferred into the hands of Real Steel‘s Shawn Levy.
Levy is a decent-enough director, but one that I don’t really have a strong opinion of either way. What I am looking forward to is Joe Carnahan‘s script. Carnahan directed Smokin’ Aces and The Grey with an incredible amount of style and energy and unfortunately he’ll only be writing Uncharted, because Sony has him tied up with their long-gestating Bad Boys sequel.
Will Levy stick to the film or will Uncharted find itself director-less yet again?
We’ll find out soon enough.
