With an Uncharted movie having been in development for a while now, the film has suffered a blow as director Shawn Levy has departed the big-screen take on the beloved video game franchise.
Via io9, Levy has left the picture in order to focus on the Ryan Reynolds-starring Free Guy. This comes as a bit of a surprise, especially as Levy has so often talked so enthusiastically about Uncharted – not to mention he’s already brought in Tom Holland to play the younger version of Nathan Drake.
Drake, of course, is the hero at the centre of the Uncharted game series. At this stage, it’s believed that the movie will be a prequel to the video game series, pulling inspiration from the Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception sequence in which young Drake first meets his treasure-hunting partner-in-crime Victor Sullivan.
As ever, expect more on this as Uncharted continues to develop.
