Sam Raimi‘s The Last of Us feature film/movie adaptation is apparently stuck in development hell as revealed by Naughty Dog‘s The Last of Us game director and writer of the film’s script, Neil Druckmann. No work is done on it in over a year and a half according to Druckmann, ouch. We will let you know if things pick back up again.
Naughty Dog game director and writer of the film’s script, Neil Druckmann, said:
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.
