SAN DIEGO (AP) — “The Last of Us” video game is becoming a film.

Filmmaker Sam Raimi and the game’s author, Neil Druckmann, announced the planned adaptation Friday at Comic-Con.

The 2013 action-adventure horror game follows a young woman, Ellie, as she navigates a post-apocalyptic United States plagued by sickness and zombie-like cannibals.

Raimi will produce the film and Druckmann is writing the script. The director and cast have not yet been announced.
