I doubt that means there will be one anytime soon, if at all. But I actually don't hate the idea, even though there's probably no way a movie would be anywhere near as good as the game.

True, i don't think movies are as good as games when they are based off them. But we just have to wait and see.

I wouldn't expect a lot out of this at the moment. Movies based on games get tossed around all the time, but many of them never leave the concept phases. Off the top of my head, I can name at least four different game-based movies that were "confirmed" to be happening but didn't get any further than that.

And honestly, I never did understand the big push for movies based on certain gaming franchises. A lot of games already try to emulate the feel of a blockbuster movie. Making actual movies off franchises like that would just be redundant, IMO.

Well thats abit redundant isn't it.....

@The_Last_Ride: I think it'll be great if they allow Naughty Dog to write the project, and create a new story within the same universe.

That would be interesting indeed

Well TLOU has one of the best stories in gaming, I think they could make a decent movie of it, although this has never happened before.

Of course Hollywood being what it is, they'll screw it up. Joel will be played by some younger actor because they'll want the movie to be regarded as "sexier". So rather than Troy Baker's affecting performance, we'll get Joel as played by Chris Pine or Channing Tatum. And Ellie will probably be the same age so they can have a sex scene. And it'll probably be Miley Cyrus.

Ellie, stop twerking the cordyceps!

This fills me with more dread than excitement. :(

You do realise that description applies more to video games than it does to anything else, let alone movies.

I can count more quality games based on movies than I can quality movies based on games.

I suppose I really have to play this game. Not keen on movie after game idea though. Past experiences speak for themselves.

Those are some pretty thin branches they are basing those rumours on.

But all the power to them if they decide to make a movie, hopefully it wont suck like 99.9999% of games to movies usually does.

Stuff has come true with less facts

True but still its pretty thin to base movies rumors on.

Anyways i wouldn´t mind a movie, it was a interesting setting but then again not so much different than whats already out there. But nevertheless it would probably be a movie i would watch when its out on bluray.

Yeah, all those games with sex scenes in them. I mean I just couldn't handle all the hot steamy action in Tetris. That straight line brick was almost pornographic. It's a wonder it didn't get an AO rating. And don't even get me started on the homoerotic subtext of PONG.

I hope not.

NO! NO! NO! Video game movies ALWAYS suck. The Last of Us doesn't deserve that. Admittedly, I've never played it. But I've heard it's quite good and good games need to be treated with respect, not sold out to movie companies to be butchered.

But there already is, it's called The Road. :P

In movies its never as out of place as it is in Video Games.

#23 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (9943 posts) -

You know if you axe the gameplay The Last Of Us is already a 6 hour movie.

I don't know if it could be done atm, because Last of Us is only known to core gamers. If they made a sequel to it, it would perhaps be more compelling
