Hopefully this turns out good. Though even if it does, I can't imagine it measuring up to the game. There just isn't enough time in a 2 hour movie to tell this 14 hour story as effectively.

Anyway, here's hoping Josh Brolin plays Joel.

My personal vote for the Infected goes to either Dynamite or RabidChinaGirl. I'm sure they'd do fabulous jobs.

So it seems like Sony is going to make a film out of every IP they own...
*Sly Cooper
*Ratchet and Clank
*Gran Turismo
*Heavenly Sword
*The Last of Us

ACTUALLY, when I used to volunteer with the Red Cross, I would participate in the Halloween haunted mansion attraction -- as one of the residents of the mansion.

How many of these movies they've annouced, aside from GT, have at least one scene written on real paper?

When I heard about this, I didn't think it would be about Joel and Ellie specifically. The fact that they said, "...a film based on The Last of Us universe," makes me even more confident that's the case.

Packing Joel and Ellie's journey into a couple hours just wouldn't work, imo, and if it's some side story, I'd rather it be another game or DLC.

Wouldn't mind seeing some things that happened to Joel after the prologue in TLOU, but again, I'd rather it be another game or DLC.

Hopefully it would be about something else in the universe, compressing such a lengthy story to 2-3 hours would be awful and you can't release a movie about stuff that happens after the prologue because then you're losing all the potential viewers who never played the game.

Maybe it will focus on the outbreak itself or follow the conflict between the fireflies & military.

if they follow the games story line properly and got the right actors then this movie could be pretty damn incredible tbh

lol, she fits the part by the looks, maybe not by voice, though.

Haha. She does look like Ellie, but she is almost twice her age. Too old. They need to get an actual teenager or it won't be as impactful
