Sony making a Last of Us movie -- Who would you cast as Joel and Ellie?
Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann to write the script; Spider-Man director Sam Raimi attached to the project in some capacity.
The Last of Us was praised for its strong story and now the PlayStation 3 action game is getting a movie adaptation. Before you shrug your shoulders or roll your eyes, consider the talent behind the project.
Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann will write the script for the film, according to Deadline's exclusive story. And Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, as well as game director Bruce Straley, are also involved. Veteran Naughty Dog writer Amy Hennig recently left the company, though it's unknown if she'll contribute to the film.
The movie will be distributed by Sony's own Screen Gems production company. Deadline also notes that Spider-Man director Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures company are attached to the project. Raimi's involvement with the project is unclear.
"Since our game released last June, we've talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn't have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards," Wells said about Screen Gems and Ghost House Pictures.
No other details about casting or plot for the Last Us movie were announced, so we have to ask: who would you cast as Joel and Ellie?
