The story will be similar...
In an interview with IGN, The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann confirmed that the movie version will be a direct adaptation of the game. The game won five awards at the 2014 BAFTA Game Awards.
Druckmann said: "It's an adaptation of the story of The Last of Us. 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."
He added that there will be more DLC coming soon, the third as part of the Season Pass. When asked about a potential sequel, he said Naughty Dog had no plans to rush.
He continued: "We don't know yet. We're still trying to figure it out. We're brainstorming some stuff, so we'll see where that goes."
Troy Baker, who voiced Joel in the game, said last week he would be interested in reprising the role for a movie or a game sequel. He told fans to trust in Druckmann on the film version.
