Things could be moving ahead with The Last of Us movie and 17-year-old Game of Thrones actress Maisy williams is looking set to play the role of ellie.
The young actress who plays Arya Stark, has been rumoured attached to the role ever since SDCC but now she’s talking about just how close she is.
She tells IGN: “I had a meeting with [producer] Sam Raimi and [game director] Neil Druckmann.
“They said they’d love ‘if you would moderate the panel at Comic-Con, but you’d need to watch the walk-through and know your s*** because there are massive fans of this and we wouldn’t want it to go wrong.’ I was doing so much work for ‘Thrones’ that I didn’t want to half-arse do it, so I said I’m not going to [moderate]. They said fine, but they’re gonna announce they had talks. So the way it was left is they want me to do it, and I want to do it. But there’s no script, no director, and no anything else. So at this moment, it’s looking like, ‘Yes,’ but it’s still such early days. If they make it in 30 years, they can’t have a 40-year-old Ellie. So at the moment, it’s looking good , and I’d love to do it. Hell yeah.”
In the game Ellie and Joel (above) live 20 years after a deadly infection killed most of the population and horribly mutated other. They may hold the answer to saving the human race.
The movie is being penned by Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann, so we know it’ll be faithful if nothing else…
