Uncharted will attempt to break new ground in late 2017, early 2018 as the first not-bad film adaptation of a video game, but the road there is long and the production has only just embarked. They’ve got director Shawn Levy (esteemed cineaste behind such films as Date Night, The Internship, and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), but now Levy has to find himself a leading man for the role of box-jawed hero Nathan Drake. As is so frequently the case with fan-cherished entertainment in recent years, the hordes of devotees decided to take matters into their own hands and ply the director with plenty of suggestions for casting.

Sony’s Uncharted movie was in danger of becoming another one of those cautionary quixotic Hollywood legends of films that never got out of pre-production — a slew of directors joined the project, before smelling delays on the wind and moving on to more promising prospects, and a couple months ago the film’s release date was removed entirely, hinting that the whole thing was doomed. But today Sony announced that Shawn Levy was taking the director’s chair, and that Uncharted is now on the fast track.

Sony has been trying to get an Uncharted movie made for years now, but despite the revolving door of directing and writing talent, the studio has been unable to get the video game adaptation off the ground. When Zero Dark Thirty scribe Mark Boal was hired back in 2014, it seemed like Sony was on the right track, but it looks like they’ve gone back to the ol’ drawing board (again), tapping Bad Boys 3 director Joe Carnahan to deliver a new screenplay.

Sony has been putting in some serious effort to ensure that their big screen adaptation of the 'Uncharted' video game is actually good. Over the years the project has attracted names like David O. Russell, Joshua Oppenheimer, and David Guggenheim, and Mark Wahlberg was attached to star at one point. The latest name to board the project is screenwriter Mark Boal, writer of 'Zero Dark Thirty' and 'The Hurt Locker,' and as a bonus, Boal is a fan of the video game on which the film is based.
