Shawn Levy to Direct ‘Uncharted’ Video Game Adaptation for Sony

Shawn Levy is on board to direct an adaptation of the popular video game “Uncharted” for Sony, sources confirmed.

Variety first reported in July that Joe Carnahan had been brought on to write the latest draft of the script, but was unable to direct as well due to his time commitment to Sony’s “Bad Boys 3.” The studio has acted quickly and set Levy as its helmer as Carnahan puts finishing touches on the script.

Uncharted” is an action-adventure film based on the critically-acclaimed and top-selling PlayStation video game series, which follows the adventures of treasure hunter Nathan Drake.

The movie will be a co-production between Arad and Atlas Entertainment Production, and will be produced by Charles Roven, Alex Gartner, and Ari and Avi Arad. Sony creative exec Jonathan Kadin is overseeing the project.

The video game series was developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America.

Levy executive produced and directed two episodes of the first season of “Stranger Things.” He’s expected to helm several episodes of Season 2 before moving on to “Uncharted.”

Levy is repped by WME. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
