The Screen Gems panel at San Diego Comic Con has revealed some very interesting news! It would seem that Maisie Williams, best known for her role as Arya Stark on HBOs ‘Game of Thrones‘ series is being considered for the part of Ellie in the film based on Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed game, ‘The Last of Us‘.
The film based on the game is still in the early stages of development, and there’s been no direct confirmation that Williams has accepted the role. Neil Druckmann the creative director and writer at Naughty Dog is handling the script for the film and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi is producing the film.
In a very interesting and (totally sane) move Naughty Dog have retained final approval on the casting and direction of the film.
