The Last of Us Movie In The Works

Were you one of the millions of people that thought that The Last of Us was a cinematic masterpiece? Would you like to see it again, only this time without the gameplay elements? Well, you’re in luck. Naughty Dog’s Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra have recruited Sam Raimi to direct a film adaptation of The Last of Us, with Neil Druckmann — creative director and writer for The Last of Us — penning the script. Sam Raimi has directed such films as Army of Darkness, Drag me to Hell, and the Spider-Man series. 

Film logline:

Hardened survivor Joel teams with young and capable companion Ellie to journey through a radically transformed world some 20 years after an infectious pandemic ravages humanity.

While The Last of Us was our game of the year in 2013, a lot of things can go wrong with a film adaptation — even with a big, marketable star at the forefront. Remember Max Payne? Yeah.
