At their San Diego Comic-Con panel, Screen Gems revealed new details about the live-action film adaptation of The Last of Us, including that Neil Druckmann, the original game’s writer and co-director, will be writing the script.

The story is too old to be commented.

Jesus, this guy really thinks he's an anime character. He's been everywhere on N4G as of late.

This isn't going to end well, writing for a game is nowhere near the same thing as writing a screenplay.

Maybe this is made for non-video gamers first and foremost then video gamers second?
Maybe its high time video game ideas really transcend the video game medium BIG TIME towards others like movies, tv shows, like comics transcended the print medium?

Druckman and Straley specifically stated they drew inspiration from movies, novels to make TLOU so there is quite a connection that makes sense to give back.

I hope the movie is successful but at the same time I hope Neil doesnt decide to leave ND and pursue a movie making career.

I'm not sure it matters. If they got a horrible team for Uncharted, they'll probably get a horrible team for The Last of Us. I love Raimi, but he's only producing. God knows what moron they'll get to direct.
