They better not mess this up.

The Last Of Us won just about every award possible and now, it seems the developers behind this masterpiece want to bring it to the big screen. No, not that 60-inch screen in your living room; the big screen in movie theaters.

Yep, according to a Deadline report , a film based on Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed game is in the works. The good news is that creative director Neil Druckmann will pen the script, and studio co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, along with game director Bruce Straley, will be involved in the production. The movie will be distributed by Sony's Screen Gems production company, and it's interesting to note that Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is somehow involved as well.

Said Wells about the endeavor:

"Since our game released last June, we've talked with many companies about making a film, but we couldn't have found better partners who share our creative vision and high standards."

Okay, so who ya got for Joel and Ellie?
