The Last of Us Movie
Screen Gems will distribute The Last of Us, a live-action adaptation of the popular PlayStation 3 video game developed by Naughty Dog. The post-apocalyptic action adventure centers on Joel, a ruthless survivor, who is asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a teenaged girl with courage beyond her years. What starts out as a simple job to deliver Ellie to another Quarantine Zone, soon transforms into a profound journey that will forever change Joel and Ellie.
20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization, infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons – whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.
