Naughty Dogs co-president Even Wells shared his excitement on the announcement of workin with Screen Gems, ““a perfect fit. Since our game released last June, we’ve talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn’t have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards.

This is great news, The Last Of Us was hands down one of my favorite games of the last generation, In fact, my only complaint when I finished the game was that it wasn’t a movie instead of a game. It was that good. Hopefully a live action film will based the critically acclaimed game won’t suffer from the “video game to live action movie” curse that has occured so often over the years.
