Well, I didn’t find this a surprise at all that they were going to make a movie for, “The Last of Us”, which is one of the best games released of 2013. After I finished the game, my first immediate thought was, “They’re gonna make this into a live-action movie”. Look like my prediction was right! Sam Raimi’s, Ghost House Pictures, is producing and they already have a writer who is, Neil Druckmann. No director have been found yet. “The Last Of Us” is an action-adventure zombie game mixed w/ a little science-fiction as well. The game is mostly storyline but there are tons of gameplay in it.
More on the story here:
Will they get Ellen Page to play Ellie? The girl pictured above? I don’t know. Ellen Page complained about the game using her likeness so she might not do it but ya never know, though. These guys may try to ask Ellen ’cause I know they won’t resist it. The Ellie character looks a lot like Ellen. Ellen didn’t voice the character, though, they just made the character look like her.
I hate most movies adapted from video games but as long as Sam Raimi is involved for this one, I’m all for it. Will Sam Raimi direct as well? Who knows. We’ll have to wait and see.
Who will play Joel, the man pictured above? Looking at that photo, I can easily think of a few actors who would be perfect for that character: Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Ethan Hawke, and Ben Affleck maybe???
Since this is a Sam Raimi movie, Bruce Campbell would probably get a small role.
Looking forward to seeing where they’re going with this. Hope they make it right.
