According to a report by Cinema Blend, Evil Dead and Spider-Man films director Sam Raimi was at SDCC to give an update on the film adaptation to TLOU, in which he confirmed that he and writer Neil Druckmann were having conversations with English actress Maisie Williams to play a part in the film. While the role hasn't been confirmed, her age and look is perfect for the character Ellie, who is one of the main characters of the game is herself as rebellious as Maisie's GOT character, Arya Stark.
That wouldn't fall far from the tree either, as Williams' castmates Kit Harrington and Sean Bean, who play her character Arya's half-brother Jon Snow and father Ned Stark respectively, both starred in a survival horror game film adaptation themselves with the 2012 film Silent Hill Revelation.
No release date has been given for The Last of Us film yet, but a remastered edition coming out for the PS4 is due on July 29!
UPDATE: Sony released this teaser poster, as seen in Kotaku.
