Sam Raimi has teamed up with Naughty Dog and Screen Gems to develop a film adaption of The Last of Us, and Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director at Naughty Dog, has confirmed that they’ve met with Maisie Williams from Game Of Thrones to play Ellie.

From what I can tell, they’re definitely looking to focus more on the relationship between Joel and Ellie and, while the Infected will be a part of the movie, Slashfilm notes that “They are ‘laser-focued on the story of Joel and Ellie,’ and could pull some elements from the Left Behind expansion into the story.”

It’s still early in development and there’s no word yet on a director (Rami is producting), but Maisie Williams would be a great choice, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how this develops.
