The Last of Us Movie Has “Kind of Entered Development Hell,” Naughty Dog Talks Uncharted Film
In addition to talking about Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End with IGN, Creative Director Neil Druckmann also offered an update on The Last of Us movie, revealing that nothing’s happened since the table read:
I know I said in an interview a while back we had a table read, got the script to a good place and it kind of entered development hell like these things tend to do. There hasn’t been any work done on it in over a year and a half.
The Uncharted movie, meanwhile, is scheduled for June 30, 2017. However, it could be delayed again. “Last I heard is they got a new screenwriter,” Druckmann said, “but we haven’t seen anything in a while.”
According to Druckmann, the relationship between Nathan, Sully, and Elena will be the most important thing for an Uncharted film. “If you don’t get that right, I don’t think the film’s going to work,” he added. “If you get that core right, there’s a chance it could work.”
Do you think we’ll see The Last of Us or Uncharted movie before 2018?
