While we wait and wait for the announcement of The Last Of Us 2, a film version of the game has quietly been in the works for some time now. However, it looks like progress on the project has not been going well, with Naughty Dog saying the film is currently in “development hell.”
Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann recently spoke with IGN regarding The Last Of Us movie, revealing that “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.”
Things don’t seem to be going much better for the Uncharted movie, with Druckmann revealing that they “Haven’t seen anything in a while. The most important part to get right is Nathan Drake, Nathan Drake’s relationship with Elena and Nathan Drake’s relationship with Sullivan. If you don’t get that right, I don’t think the film’s going to work.”
Despite Naughty Dog having problems with seeing their video games turned into films, the release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will finally happen next month for PlayStation 4 on May 10th.
