The Last of Us is coming to a theater near you… eventually! The popular game focuses on a couple of humans, Joel and Ellie, trudging across a wrecked world filled with Clickers, Bloaters, and all manner of nasty creatures. We don’t know how it will adapted for the big screen, but the creative director for the game, Neil Druckmann, is penning it. That’s promising. Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures is set to produce, and Screen Gems will distribute.
We’ve seen plenty of post-apocalyptic worlds portrayed in films, but that’s also true for video games. It stands to reason that if The Last of Us can make waves in gaming, they can bring a fresh approach to the movies too. Just imagine how awesomely terrifying the Clickers will look! Someone will have to tell me because I’m too much of a wimp to check it out.
