When it comes to adapting video games for the big screen, we have seen a lot of unsuccessful attempts over the years but this has not stopped people from continuing to try to find the right formula. One of the next video games that we can expect to see on the big screen is the movie adaptation of the hit video game The Last of Us, which is currently in the casting process.
There have been plenty of rumours about which stars we will see cast in the lead roles of Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us movie, with many people suggesting that Gerard Butler is the clear favourite to land the role of Joel, while there seems to be a bit of a battle between two actress to win the female lead role as Ellie in The Last of Us film.
Since Ellen Page has lent her likeness and her voice to past video games such as Beyond Two Souls, and looks a lot like the character, many people feel that it makes perfect sense for her to take on the role of Ellie for the movie. However, there are now suggestions that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams in also in the running to play Ellie in The Last of Us movie.
While no official casting has yet been confirmed, as well as there yet being a director brought on board, what we do already know is that Neil Druckmann is working on adapting the screenplay of the movie for the big screen. We will keep you posted with any updates we have on The Last of Us movie when we get them.
