The Last of Us getting a movie?

The last of us2

Wow, The Last of Us had everything you could want from a game. Intriguing story, realistic characters, varied game play (for the most part) and impressive graphics. It has been called game of the console by many, and now it appears that it might get a movie adaptation.

Sony has registered the movie domain: thelastofusmovie.net. Now, this could just be a defensive purchase – we know how often big corporates get taken by a ride by opportunistic domain squatters. So, this might not be a sign that we should look out for news over on The Movies about casting calls anytime soon.

That said, Sony is working on capitalizing on their entertainment side of things – The Last of Us was a huge success for their gaming division, maybe it will be a golden goose for their movie division, too. I’m just waiting for the horrors of the internet to spawn things like The Lust of Us – I saw what all those deviant art people did! It’s only a matter of time until someone makes a movie featuring the (statutory?) rape of Ellie. The internet is filled with far too many sick, sick people.

I wonder if they’ll get Ellen Page to star in it considering so many people thought Ellie was based on her. Or maybe they’ll actually prove how awesome Ashley Johnson was by letting her play the character she brought to life. Either way, I would like to see them bring this movie to the silver screen for all of the master race gamers who missed out on this one.

          If her name was washed off, just tattoo it on your hand this time.

          Thing is, if you could buy Mila Kunis for 3 – 4 grand, and you opt not to, then you sir are an idiot! πŸ™‚

      Indeed! BUUUUUUUUUUURN! Love how the PC master race get together when a real burn happens, and pretend they don’t care. How about them GTAV too? BWAHAHAH!

    The game is basically a movie already.

      Exactly, the idea is insulting but it would be a good lessen to prove that The Last of Us is a master piece in interactive story telling and show just how primitive linear story telling is.

    I bet the movie is another PG 8 fail of an 18+ game.

    If they do make a movie about it, then they should make an Origin movie. On how everything happened and from a different view point

      Yeah, I agree. I’d like a “The first of them” story!

        They can actually make an epic movie about how it all got started, not like how they did the resident evil movies

    Shows the lack of imagination and ideas these days, the minute something is a hit, they rape the hell out of it, movies, series, action figures, books etc. Not keen.

    Ashley Johnson is too old to play Ellie. Ironically, a few years ago Ellen Page would have been perfect for the role.

    Its unfortunate that Video game movies are not working. But I keep thinking to myself, If they can turn a Disney ride into a Successful film Franchise, Why cant they do the same with Video game adaptations. What put me off them completely was the Doom movie. Change the story, Hire the Rock and make it look cheap. The key to Doom is to make it scary as hell and forget the kids, Make it a R18 movie. Use the concept art from the original game and use the same monsters, The Mancubus, The Hell Knight and all the original scary as hell monsters from Doom 3 .Set it on Mars and Use the Portal into Hell theme. As a Doom fan, The movie was a washed out paint by numbers affair that destroyed the Franchise credibility. And for fucks sakes, Don’t name the Characters after the Developers and forget the Fps Cam, Unless done Neil Blompkamp style. And it needs to be a 2 and a half hour long movie. The mainstream have never really experienced a game like Doom or Fear from a gamers perspective.
