Naughty Dog’s emotionally-charged post-apocalyptic action game The Last of Us felt a lot like playing through a movie – or at the very least an HBO DVD box set – and so it’s perhaps no surprise that The Last of Us is getting a movie adaptation, with game director Neil Druckmann penning the script.
"It's an adaptation of the story of [The Last of Us](movie:1190382)," says Druckmann. "As far as where we go and how we make it fit into a film, how it takes into account the unique properties of film... We're not sure yet. We're only just scratching the surface."
According to KpopStarz, Hugh Jackman and Chloë Grace Moretz are the frontrunners to play the two leads, an older, grizzled warrior and a younger woman forced to depend on each other in a fungus-based apocalypse.
I believe Kick Ass's 17 year-old actress Chloë Grace Moretz is the best choice to portray the role of Ellie in The Last of Us Movie. She has proven herself time and time again in a number of excellent films. That said, Moretz’s star is rising so quickly, she may have little interest in a video game film, given the stigma still attached to the genre. Another excellent suggestion many fans have mentioned is Ellen Page. Furthermore, Chloë Moretz and Ellen Page are both highly suggested by Naughty Dog's The Last of Us fans.
