Naughty Dog, Sony, and Screen Gems—the company behind the production of Resident Evil: Afterlife—just signed an agreement. Neil Druckmann, the creative director for The Last of Us, will be writing the script, and he’ll also oversee the process alongside Naught Dog presidents Evan Wells and Cristophe Balestra, and game director Bruce Straley.
Ghost House Productions will also be involved.
Video game movies are notoriously bad, but at least this one has some of Naughty Dog’s core people involved with it. With Druckmann in charge of the writing, maybe this is one that can escape the stigma of video game movies. We certainly hope so.
While we wait for more information, tell us who you would cast in a film of The Last of Us if it were your choice.
