If you've played The Last of Us, the idea of a movie alone is probably enough to get you excited, but video game adaptations don't have a great track record. However, it might help that the game's developers will be directly involved, along with Sam Raimi and Ghost House Pictures.

According to Deadline, Screen Gems will distribute the live-action version of The Last of Us and Neil Druckmann, the Creative Director at Naughty Dog, will write the script. It has also been said that Sam Raimi, Ghost House Pictures and Naughty Dog's Evan Wells, Christophe Balestra, and Bruce Straley will be involved creatively.

For those that haven't played the game, here's the logline and the trailer: "Hardened survivor Joel teams with young and capable companion Ellie to journey through a radically transformed world some 20 years after an infectious pandemic ravages humanity."
