Big news coming out of the Sony Screen Gems panel from Sam Raimi. The legendary director and producers announced he will be bringing the hit survival horror game THE LAST OF US to the big screen.

“Set in a post-apocalyptic U.S. after the bulk of the population has been wiped out by an infection, THE LAST OF US follows Joel, who’s “asked by a dying friend to look after Ellie, a fourteen-year-old 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. As they trek across the country, Joel and Ellie will encounter different factions of survivors that have each found a unique way of dealing with the infected humans, the lack of supplies, and the threat of other survivors.”

But the news didn’t stop there. He then revealed plans to produced an EVIL DEAD tv series that Bruce Campbell WILL be involved with! I personally loved the EVIL DEAD remake and am very intrigued by how they could pull off a tv series. However with the rise in the quality of TV shows we have seen over the years and a dip at the box office it’s possible it could become a juggernaut…or it could become the Friday the 13th tv series. Time will tell. More on this as it develops.
