Screen Gems Takes On Sony PlayStation Vidgame Adaptation ‘The Last Of Us’
‘The Last of Us’ is an infectious disease-related PlayStation video game that has had rave reviews from the gaming world. The plot: hardened survivor Joel teams with young and capable companion Ellie to journey through a radically transformed world some 20 years after an infectious pandemic ravages humanity.
The game has won numerous awards and has been a big seller since its release last summer.
Screen Gems has signed on to distribute The Last Of Us, a live-action adaptation of the PlayStation 3 vidgame from Naughty Dog. Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director for the game, will write the script. The creative architects will be Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, as well as Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley. They’ll team with Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures banner.
