Some news about The Last of Us movie was made known at the Screen Gems panel at the San Diego Comic Con. Most notably, it was announced that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is in talks to play Ellie. This is a casting choice that makes total sense; she’s the right age and she already plays a nomad-type of character on Game.
Also, Sam Raimi is set to produce The Last of Us film, which is still in the early stages of development. Neil Druckmann, Naughty Dog’s creativeand writer, will write the film’s script, which will obviously have some story changes since this is a film adaptation of a game. However, while Druckmann originally wanted the film’s ending to differ from that of the game’s, Raimi persuaded him otherwise. Nonetheless, Druckmann has final approval on the story and casting, so where the movie goes is still anyone’s guess.
What do you think of the casting news? And should the film have a different ending than the game?
