The Last of Us is a video game about a post apocalyptic world where humans are the minority and zombies the majority. Now, I've talked about video games being made into movies already but this one is kind of special. The project is being spearheaded by no other than Sam Raimi, father of the Evil Dead franchise.
According to the film’s writer, Neil Druckmann, Maisie Williams has been approached to play the lead role of Ellie in the film. Williams is best known for her role as Arya Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones. There has been no official word on Williams attachment to the project as of yet.
What do you think, have you seen enough zombies? Would a film trump TV for you? Have you played the game?
I haven't played the game yet, and I would likely have watched the movie regardless, but if Maisie Williams plays the lead, I can guarantee you I will be watching this one. I love her role in Game of Thrones, and I would really enjoy seeing her as a lead in a movie.
