Nathan Drake movie nabs Stranger Things director

October 29th, 2016 by Marc Comments


It’s not that long ago we reported (here) that Joe Carnaghan would be writing the script for the Nathan Lane movie and at the time it was announced that, while many hoped he’d also direct it, the Narc  and The Grey director would instead be looking after the third Bad Boys movie.

And now we have a director for the movie in the shape of Night At The Museum, Real Steel and Stranger Things’ Shawn Levy.

I have to be honest, I thought initially that Levy wouldn’t be an ideal choice but then I remembered that he also worked on Stranger Things and was a bit more confident about the choice.

What do you all think? Is he the man for the gig? Let us know…

Based on the action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive, the story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is escalated when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
