According to Buzzfeed's senior film reporter Adam Vary on Twitter, Game Of Thrones actor Maisie Williams "had a meeting"c with the makers of The Last Of Us movie crew "for [the] lead role of Ellie.". This would be the 17-year-old's 6th film if talks are successful.What this story also tells us is that the The Last Of Us film is happening, and that, in another tweet by Vary, "Naughty Dog will have the final say on casting." Could this mean that we could finally have a true video game film that isn't Uwe Boll-ocks?
It could be, but it's way too early to tell. All we currently know for sure is that Naughty Dog are helping to create the film, but we don't know who's casting, starring, directing or producing it, so I'm going to wave my speculative wand and decide who should play Joel!
Personally, I think that Hugh Jackman should take on the role of Joel. First of all, he looks a helluva lot like him, and secondly I think that, because he plays mostly serious roles in films, and has played grizzled and serious characters in the past.
What do you guys think? Would Williams make a good fit for Ellie? And how wrong is my pick for Jackman as Joel? Tell us in the comments below!
