The Last Of Us Film Script Coming Along "Really Well"

Just because they had to make changes doesn't mean the movie will be bad...right?

In a recent Game Informer interview, writer and Naughty Dog boss Neil Druckmann says the upcoming film based on "The Last Of Us" is "pretty faithful to the game."

He added that "there are some big changes, but the tone and what the story's trying to say is pretty faithful," so that's good news. Druckmann believes the script is coming along "really well" and he's already finished a second draft. We still don't know which actors and actresses are lined up for the parts, but it's widely rumored that "Game of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams is scheduled to play the critical role of Ellie.

There's no director for the project yet, either, although we do know that "Spider-Man" vet Sam Raimi will be producing it. What are your expectations for this movie? Can it hope to equal the mastery of the game?

yeah, I hear the Uncharted, God of War, Assassin's Creed, Shadow of the Colossus, and Heavy Rain movies are moving along smoothly as well.

Heard this before... However this is much easier to work on than an Uncharted movie. Instantly it will be compared to Indiana Jones and that's never good.

Not particularly interested in seeing this as a movie. The difference between Book to Movie adaptations and Game to Movie adaptations is that with Games you have set visuals, choreography, while with books you mind creates the visuals, so with games the content feels more set in stone. The only game adaptation I have enjoyed is the first Silent Hill movie, different to the games story but it was still very good and atmospheric.
