Last year Sony registered a domain for “thelastofusmovie.net”. That made it look like Sony was interested in turning the game into a movie, which we would all love. And now a report from Deadline Hollywood has revealed that a movie will indeed be happening.
Sony Picture’s Screen Gems has signed a deal with Naughty Dog and Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director for the game, will pen the script for the movie. Aside from that it was said that additional “creative architects” will be Naughty Dog’s co-presidents, Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, as well as Game Director Bruce Straley.
Naughty Dog’s co-president, Evan Wells says, “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.”
Sam Raimi will be in charge of producing the movie for Sony. It is too early to know when Sony plans on releasing the film, but we are just happy to know it is on the way. My only request is that it star Ellen Page. That is a must.
