The Last of Us movie, at least on paper, is sure sounding like it could break through the history of mediocrity that has plagued recent big-screen video game adaptations. We already know creative director Neil Druckmann is writing the movie's script, and now the designer has revealed that the movie will be a re-telling of the game's story, not a new extension to the series.
"It's an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us," Druckmann told IGN in a new interview. The Last of Us has won numerous awards (include Best Game last night at the BAFTAs), with many critics praising the game's character-driven nature and specifically the writing for central characters like Joel and Ellie.
As for how specifically The Last of Us will make the jump to the big screen, Druckmann said these decisions have not been made yet. The movie was only just announced last week.
"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."
Spider-Man director Sam Raimi will produce the Last of Us movie, but casting details have not been announced, nor has a director for the project been named.
Druckmann also commented on the possibility of Naughty Dog creating a full sequel to The Last of Us, making clear (again) that no decisions have been made yet.
"We don't know yet," Druckmann said. "We're still trying to figure it out. We're brainstorming some stuff, so we'll see where that goes."
