Another week, another video game movie is announced! Deadline has revealed that the grizzly survival horror game The Last of Us is to be adapted for the big screen.

The multiple award winning game from developer Naughty Dog depicts the story of Joel, a struggling survivor of a pandemic that ruined civilization, turning infected humans into wild monsters. Joel’s hired to escort the 14 year-old Ellie out of an oppressive military quarantine zone. If the rumours are true, Ellie is the key to ending the outbreak.

Released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 back in June 2013, Sony Pictures subsidiary company Screen Gems is set to distribute the live-action adaptation. Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann is set to pen the script with help from co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra and game director Bruce Straley.

They’ll be working alongside The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi as he’s set to produce the film under his Ghost House Pictures banner.

So the big question is, who would you cast as Joel and Ellie? Leave us a comment below!
