The Last of Us: Upcoming Movie!

Posted by Unknown Saturday, March 8, 2014
I can assure you that your eyes did not deceive you, this is genuinely happening, The Last of Us is coming to the big screen! It was only a matter of time before the brilliant story got picked up, and there's actually a chance of it being a thoroughly good film, with the creative director for the game Neil Druckmann writing the script for the movie adaptation and Screen Gems distributing it. Naughty Dog's co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra will be producing the action-packed movie, with Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann coming in for the creative side of things.

Here's Screen Gem's president Clint Culpepper on why he trusts Neil Druckmann to pen the movie:
"Screen Gems' Brian Dukes and Eric Ling brought this game to my attention, insisting we go after it. When I saw the quality of the storytelling, I knew the audience for this project was far greater than just the gaming community and that Neil Druckmann must write the screenplay. I am thrilled that Sony Computer Entertainment America's Riley Russell was able to get me in front of Neil and Evan Wells to plead my case. And Sam and his team at Ghost House round out the perfect team to help realize Neil's vision."
The Last of Us is an action-adventure survival horror game. It follows the story of two survivors, Joel and Ellie, as they try and make their way through a postapocalyptic world. They must fight to survive in a world infected by the horrific cordeyceps virus, which has turned people into zombie-like beings. Those aren't the only threat; players also encounter hostile humans, bandits, and cannibals.
