In a surprise move, this year's Screen Gems Comic-Con panel turned most of its attentions and energies to a film without a cast, a director, or a script in place: the long-teased 'The Last of Us' feature film. The film was officially announced back in March, and producer Sam Raimi and video game creator Neil Druckmann (who is now officially on board to write the script for the film) popped up at this afternoon's panel to talk about the feature film as part of Screen Gems' future-leaning panel.
The Last of Us
'The Last of Us' was one of the most critically and financially successful video games released in 2013, with many gamers declaring it to be one of the best games ever released in lifespan of the PlayStation 3. So it's not surprising that a movie version is officially in the works. (That sound you just heard is gamers all over the world collectively wincing because Hollywood has a habit of screwing up even the most surefire video game adaptations.)
Add 'The Last of the Us' to the pile of projects ready to capitalize on the popularity of zombies in pop culture ... maybe. It looks like Sony has registered some highly suspect domain names, leading us to believe that the corporation is preparing for a film adaptation of its incredibly popular video game 'The Last of Us.' It is the day after Thanksgiving, so there's no better way to celebrate than by capitalizing on a sure thing.
It's been a troubling few years for game and console sales, but June provided a slight glimmer of hope as sales finally increased after months of diminishing returns.
In a game littered with, well, litter, Naughty Dog probably never expected fans to dig through the trash and flyers in The Last of Us to discover potential secrets. This being the internet age, that's exactly what happened, only the secret wasn't supposed to be there, and it's kind of dirty.
