'Stranger Things' director will helm the 'Uncharted' movie

Shawn Levy will still direct several episodes of the second series of theNetflix hit.

Sony Pictures has announced that Shawn Levy will be directing the live-action movie version of Uncharted. If the name sounds familiar, Levy was the executive producer and director of Netflix hit Stranger Things, and while he'll still be involved in the show's second season, he'll now also be in charge of Nathan Drake's big-screen debut -- one of the PlayStation's most cinematic franchises.

The project has already bounding through script writer changes and general whispers of development hell. And yeah, still no more on that Last of Us movie -- or whether the Uncharted movie will still manage to hit theaters next summer. (It probably won't.)
