A few days ago, a short film entitled “The Last of Us: Ellie’s Revenge“. A respectable cinematographic product that, although it is amateur, boasts a respectable budget: thetotal investment was around $ 10,000 with a cast of as many as 20 people.
It was directed by film-maker Tommy Jackson and the vision of the movie includes important spoilers on the plot of the second chapter of the game produced by the Californian Naughty Dog. Over time, many fans of the series have produced fan-made films of various kinds, but this short film is absolutely incredible and we link it to you below:
Right now, the short has garnered nearly 500,000 views on YouTube.
Just in these days, we have returned to talk about the project, then canceled, of the film on the first chapter of The Last of Us. This was done by Naughty Dog’s Co-President himself, Neil Druckmann, during a Script Apart podcast, explaining that the reason for the failure of the project was mainly due to the too much attention paid to the action scenes that did not do justice to the game’s story, the more intimate one that explores the dramas of the characters involved in the events narrated. This project was then reformulated into the production of a TV series by HBO Max since the transition to its new incarnation as a television series helped a lot in capturing the original intentions with which the game was born.
