The Last of Us movie has not been worked on for a year and a half0 Comments
Remember that movie, based on that game that we were all wholly obsessed with back in 2013, and then re-obsessed with the following year when it was re-released? Oh right, The Last of Us, still possibly the best game on both my PlayStation 3 and 4 consoles. According to Neil Druckman, the creative director over at Naughty Dog, the movie adaptation of the game has been stuck in place for some time now.
In an interview with IGN, Druckman spoke about where the movie was sitting currently. "I know I said in an interview a while back we had a table read, got the script to a good place and it kind of entered development hell like these things tend to do. There hasn't been any work done on it in over a year and a half."
Well, that's certainly a poor outlook on prospects for seeing anything concrete in the near future, but my fingers are crossed that we will still get a The Last of Us movie, even if it takes several years to come to fruition. Druckman was responsible for writing the script for the movie, which is one of the reasons many people had been so excited about it. Developers are not often given a lot of creative freedom when it comes to their movie adaptations, and hopefully we'll get to see what the Naughty Dog team had in mind for Joel and Ellie on the big screen.
