The Last of Us Movie Based on Video Game – Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann
Still working out how to “make it fit into a film.”
The Last of Us will be getting a movie adaptation and writer/director Neil Druckmann has confirmed that it will be adapt the story of the video game.
“It’s an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us. As far as where we go and how we make it fit into a film, how it takes into account the unique properties of film…We’re not sure yet. We’re only just scratching the surface,” said Druckmann to IGN at the recent BAFTA Awards, where The Last of Us won five awards.
It will at least stay faithful to the game, which is always a good thing. Most developers attempt to have their franchise adapted in a way that suits the masses and it’s still not working very well.
Regardless, would you be keen to see Ellie and Joel on the big screen in what is essentially a live-action retelling of the video game? Let us know in the comments.
