Sony is Doubling Down on Video Game Adaptations, Teaming Up Its Gaming and Film Divisions

Video game movies have a spotty track record in Hollywood.

But expect dozens more shows and movies based on your favorite games in the future, because Hollywood is doubling down on video game adaptations. And Sony, naturally, is leading the charge. Per a report from The New York Times, Sony is doubling down on video game ada...

The Planned ‘The Last of Us’ Movie Fell Apart Because the Studio Kept Demanding Bigger Action Scenes

Back in 2014, Hollywood had set its eyes on The Last of Us, the critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic video game which earned raves for its cinematic ambition. So an adaptation to the screen should have been no problem, right? Wrong. After two years of development under Screen Gems and Sony, with game director Neil Druckmann penning the script and Sam Raimi producing, the Last of Us movie ground to a halt. It languished in development hell until HBO swept in last year to pick up the pieces and ...
