Sam Raimi to produce film adaptation of the video game The Last of Us.

I personally have never played the video game The Last of Us. All my friends play it and i’ve only heard GREAT things. It was announced that Sam Raimi and his Ghost House Pictures will be turning the game into a live-action movie. It will be released by Screen Gems. Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper had this to say:

“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. 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.”
