Sony has announced that they have reached a deal with Screen Gems and Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures to bring Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us to the big screen.
Raimi will be one of the producers and the script will be written by the game’s creative director Neil Druckmann.
This gives me mixed feelings. The Last of Us was my Game of the Year last year because it was such an emotional journey watching Joel and Ellie’s relationship develop. It was perfect as it was and I don’t know if a movie can match the impact of the game. Of course, I am not saying it can not be made into a worthy film with good casting, direction and Druckmann writing the script.
What do you think about The Last of Us being brought to theaters?
