Screen Gems, a Sony Pictures subsidiary is developing a live action film based on the acclaimed PlayStation 3 exclusive videogame The Last of Us.

Ghost House Pictures, the production company founded by decorated filmmaker Sam Raimi, is attached to the project with Raimi to produce along with game developer Naughty Dog's co-preisdents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra and game director Bruce Straley, but perhaps even more promising is that Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann, the game's creative director has been signed on to pen the movie's script (via Polygon):
"Screen Gems' Brian Dukes and Eric Ling brought this game to my attention insisting we go after it, and when I saw the quality of the storytelling, I knew the audience for this project was far greater than just the gaming community and that Neil Druckmann must write the screenplay," Screen Gems President Clint Culpepper said in a release. "I am thrilled that SCEA's Riley Russell was able to get me in front of Neil and Evan Wells to plead my case. Sam and his team at Ghost House round out the perfect team to help realize Neil's vision."

"Our partnership with Sam Raimi, Ghost House Pictures, and Screen Gems to develop a film based on The Last of Us universe is a perfect fit," said Evan Wells, Naughty Dog co-president. "Since our game released last June, we've talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn't have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards. We look forward to collaborating with Sam, his team, and Screen Gems, to make a movie that will thrill fans of The Last of Us and general audiences worldwide."
This just might work!

Easily my favourite PS3 game. Got into this story more than any game ever. Would be keen to see a movie take on it.

I guess this means the uncharted movie has been shelved.

I'm not sure what to think. I sort of want to see a movie, but a part of me also doesn't want them to do it.

Almost want to get a PS3 just for this game. Sucks that PC gamers have to miss out on what is supposed to be an amazing game...

I bought a PS3 purely for Last of Us and if I didn't play another PS3 game on it, it still would have been worth it. Quite easily in my top 3 games of last gen, most likely favourite.

This game deserves a proper film treatment but it'll end up getting the Resident Evil treatment. Enjoyable films but absolutely nothing like the original game.

Only if you install the proprietary Sony(R) DRM activation software and allow it to upload the entire contents of your hard drive in order to ensure a feature rich experience.

neil druckmann was the writer and director for the game. hopefully the story wont get butchered since he's writing the screenplay.

also, if anyone is interested, the making of the last of us doco was uploaded to youtube.

I ordered a cheap copy last week from ozgameshop, my version is one that was apart of a bundle. Link http://www.ozgameshop.com/ps3-games/the-last-of-us-game-bundle-copy-ps3

It was one of the cheapest ones I could find and I don't mind waiting. It should be here this week sometime.

Sam Raimi is a pretty good director, of Evil Dead trilogy and Drag me to Hell fame.

And with the game's creative writer/director writing the screenplay plus having creative input, I'm cautiously optimistic this will turn out good.

so cast. im thinking gerard butler (Gamer, 300 etc) and Ellen Page (Juno, Inception etc).

thats basically who i pictured while playing the game.

Haha, I immediately thought they should cast Ellen Page, and thought she'd been involved in the game just based off the likeness.

she looks closer to ashley johnson than ellen page after the redesign.
