Is a ‘The Last of Us’ Movie Being Made?


Although no official announcement has been made, the internet speculation seems to be positing the idea that Sony is getting their ducks in a row to make an adaptation of the hit Playstation 3 game, The Last of Us. According to a website that tracks these things, the entertainment conglomerate has snatched up a couple of domain names that it would need if Sony is indeed planning on a movie based on the post-apocalyptic game of the same name.

Domain Tools says that the internet addresses and were both registered by Sony’s brand protection agent MarkMonitor on November 25. It could be Sony looking to guard its options, or it could be a provisional first step in the company getting its eggs together to make a movie version of The Last of Us. A movie based on the game would be a smart idea since it was one of the best-selling video games to ever be released on the Playstation 3.

The plot of The Last of Us follows a lone wolf named Joel as he escorts a 14-year-old orphan named Ellie across post-apocalyptic America. Ellie’s blood may contain the cure to a fungal plague that’s turned much of the world’s population on zombie-like monsters, and a resistance group called the Firflies think they can save the world with her, but Joel has to guide Ellie across a brutal landscape of monsters, mercenaries and cannibals in order to get her there.

Obviously, a The Last of Us movie would a pretty big deal. We’ll keep you posted with any updates.
