Report: Shawn Levy is No Longer Directing the Uncharted Feature Film
Shawn Levy is not directing the Uncharted feature-length film starring Tom Holland anymore, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Uncharted feature film has had a bit of a rocky life the past eight years or so. Actors come and go, scripts change, and the project never really seems to get off the ground. It seems like that cycle isn’t stopping anytime soon as Shawn Levy, the most recent director signed up for the project, has reportedly left the movie based on the hit video game.
According to a new report by The Hollywood Reporter, Levy’s new project, Free Guy, has just been greenlit by 20th Century Fox, meaning he’s no longer going to be involved with Uncharted. Of course, this doesn’t mean much of anything as the film has really never even made it past the script stage. As of the time of this writing, the only other person to stay attached to the project is Spider-Man: Homecoming’s Tom Holland. He’s been attached for just about as long as Levy was.
According to the report, Sony is currently looking for another director to helm the project but no names have been announced, obviously.
Until the Uncharted movie gets produced, however, you can check out a short film based on the games directed Allan Ungar and starring Nathan Fillion, as well as an editorial about how that short film proves an Uncharted movie could work.
