Neil Druckmann, writer and director of The Last of Us (which is probably my favorite game ever) recently talked about the movie adaptation of the video game. We have good news for all the fans of the video game who are afraid of a live action adaptation of this glorious material. It will be faithful to the game, but Neil said it will have some changes. Here’s what he said in an interview with GameInformer:
Pretty faithful to the game. There are some big changes, but the tone and what the story’s trying to say is pretty faithful to the game.
This is really obvious, and people who played this game and video games in general have to understand that you will not have the same thing in the big screen. A video game is like a six hour experience that you live in a different way than some people. I’m glad this movie which is produced by Sam Raimi is moving forward. Druckmann said the second draft is done, and the fact that this will feel like the game makes me happy.
