Sam Raimi producing ‘The Last of Us’ movie

LastofUs

The video game smash hit of 2013, The Last Of Us, is getting turned into a feature film with Sam Raimi’s Ghost House Pictures producing, Deadline reports.

Considering the enormous market video games have nowadays, it’s actually a surprise more recent hits haven’t crossed over into cinematic territory, but The Last Of Us seems perfectly on trend to lead the way with its post-apocalyptic, zombie scenario.

Most interesting is seeing the game’s creative director, Neil Druckmann, shift mediums and set himself up to write the screenplay.

No names have been mooted for the key role of director at this stage and it’s unlikely that Raimi himself has the time to helm it himself, but we can only excitedly dream of the potential fun a filmmaker like Raimi could have with a kinetic story such as this.
