If you weren’t already foaming at the mouth for Sony’s film adaptation of developer Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, this news ought to change that. With Sam Raimi producing and Naughty Dog writer and director Neil Druckman penning the script, it’s clear they’re taking the source material seriously. But with the roles of Joel and Ellie still left unfilled, there’s a fair amount of pressure that they get the casting right.
At a secret Comic-Con panel, Raimi and Druckman showed they’re at least looking in the right direction. While it’s not set in stone, actress Maisie Williams, better known as Arya Stark to Game of Thrones geeks like myself, is currently in talks to star as Ellie.
This needs to happen.
In related news, Sony Pictures just tweeted a picture of a limited edition poster for the upcoming film, which you can see below.
