Neil Druckmann, Naughty Dog Creative Director, spoke recently about movie adaptions for The Last of Us, and Uncharted, and how he is no longer looking forward to them. Here is what he had to say:
"We used to just be excited – 'Oh my god, movies are looking at us' – but then as more time passes on we're not excited about a direct adaptation because we've already told that story very well cinematically."
He went on to talk about more issues with the movies, specifically regarding the characters being recast:
“For me and a lot of our fans Nolan North is Nathan Drake. Ashley Johnson is Ellie. Troy Baker is Joel. It would be very disorienting to see someone else in that role.”
