It is been over a year since we heard anything about THE LAST OF US movie, with creator/screenwriter Neil Druckmann saying of the film adaptation of the popular video game: « Just finished the second draft and we did a table read using a lot of actors and that’s where we are at…. » Sounded supporting, particularly considering it looked for all of the universe that they had their lead in the form of Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams. But no motion on the endeavor in the past 13 months is cause for anxiety, yes? Yes.
In fact, there is barely any news to report
I understand I said in a interview some time back we had a table got the script to your good place and it entered development hell like these things tend to do.
Sam Raimi was on board to make THE LAST OF US movie and as far as we know, that is still the case. But this hopes for this one getting off the ground shortly have only taken a big hit; we likely will not be receiving a film charting the adventures of Ellie and Joel for a while.
Strategies to make movie adaptations of Naughty Dog’s franchises Uncharted and The Last of Us are still in the works, though neither will soon be reaching the big screen in the forseeable future.
Within a press event showcasing gameplay for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, IGN had a chance to speak with game manager Neil Druckmann (who also wrote The Last of Us’ movie script) and request updates on the two projects. According to him, Naughty Dog has simply been « somewhat involved » in the development of the Uncharted movie, which Sony now has slated for a June 30, 2017 release date.
« Every once in a while they will come in and they will present to us: here’s the script, here’s that which we are thinking. We are going to tell them what we think works, that which we think doesn’t work, » Druckman said, adding, « That Is where we’re at.
In accordance with Druckmann, to making a Uncharted movie work, the first step would be to ensure the center relationship between Nate, Elena and Sully is not as bad as it might be.
« Our approach is just to direct them back to those relationships, » he explained. I do not believe the film’s going to function should you not get that right. If you get that center right, there’s a chance it could work. »
