Recommended Posts

Following the BAFTA Game Awards where The Last of Us took home five accolades, The Last of Us' creative director, Neil Druckmann, talked a bit about the upcoming film based on that IP which he is slated to screen-write.


Speaking with IGN, Druckmann confirmed that it will be a straight adaptation of the video game's storyline, squashing speculation that it could be telling a different story set within the apocalyptic landscape of The Last of Us.


"It’s an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us," Druckmann stated, "As far as where we go and how we make it fit into a film, how it takes into account the unique properties of film... We’re not sure yet. We’re only just scratching the surface."


As for a potential sequel to the game that recently surpassed 6 million units in sales, Druckmann isn't quite sure. "We don’t know yet, we're still trying to figure it out. We’re brainstorming some stuff, so we’ll see where that goes."


Is a direct video game adaptation something that you're interested in seeing? Do you feel better knowing one of the creative leads on the game is working on the film?
