The Last of Us movie will be an adaption of the game

Neil Druckmann, creator of The Last of Us has confirmed that the upcoming movie will be an adaption of the game, rather than a spin off.

Whilst talking to IGN at last night’s BAFTA awards (which The Last of Us won five), Druckmann revealed that the movie will indeed be an adaption of the game which means that Joel and Ellie might well be on the big screen sometime soon.

“It’s an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us,” he said. “As far as where we go and how we make it fit into a film, how it takes into account the unique properties of film… We’re not sure yet. We’re only just scratching the surface.”
