Sony Announced at SDCC that a movie based on the hit pseudo-zombie/survival game is in the works. Sam Raimi, producer of awesome shit like Xena: Warrior Princess and director of awesome until the third installment stuff like the Tobey McGuire Spider-Man movies, is attached to add producing this bad boy to his roster. Alongside him will be Naughty Dog’s own Creative Director, Neil Druckmann, also acting as a producer. The film will be distributed by Screen Gems and Raimi’s own company, Ghost House, so don’t be surprised by a possible Bruce Campbell cameo.
Also from game developer Naughty Dog, co-Presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, writer Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley will be acting as “Creative Architects” for the movie, keeping it as close to the source material as possible.
