[The Verge] 'The Last of Us' is Becoming a Live-Action Movie

Sony subsidiary Screen Gems will be releasing a film adaptation of PlayStation 3 game The Last of Us, Deadline reports. Game creative director Neil Druckmann will reportedly be writing the script, with participation from other members of studio Naughty Dog. Sam Raimi's Ghost House Pictures production company, which worked on the 2013 remake of Evil Dead, will collaborate with them to make the film. "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," said Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper. The move was rumored last year, when Sony filed trademarks related to the film.

Haha!

Personally I wish they weren't going this route. The game's presentation was so perfect it set the bar impossibly high. I can't imagine a 2 hr Hollywood flick meeting expectations.

That and with no troy baker as joel or ashley johnson as ellie will definitely make me steer away from this. I feel that video games that turn to movies should stick to only CG movies. For example resident evil damnation and final fantasy advent children were great. Live action for games just doesn't seem right unless it's something like Halo.
