Apparently, when it comes to news about video game adaptations, it never rains but it pours. Soon after we learned about the ill-conceived Resident Evil TV show, Naughty Dog has released more info regarding The Last of Us' silver screen conversion. Specifically, the original game's writer Neil Druckmann has stated that several cuts have had to be made in order to properly condense the story into a movie.
"It’s been really difficult to cut certain things out, but what I’m starting to get is this really focused narrative that’s about these two characters," he said. "Some parts will be similar to the game and some parts will be quite different, but it’s kind of interesting in helping me understand this other medium and its strengths compared to video games.”
While there's absolutely no reason that this movie has to be terrible, we're still not completely convinced that the story makes sense in a filmic context. With that said, the original writer is at the helm, so it's certainly in the right hands. Will you be taking a trip to the theatre to see The Last of Us, or was the remastered version more than enough? Head to the candy bar in the comments section below.
