“There was a whole thing that went on Twitter [of fans suggesting me for the role]," she explained. I didn’t know a lot about [the game]. I Googled it. Ashley Johnson — who did Ellie’s voice — [fans] asked her what she thought of me and she said, ‘That’s pretty much my dream.’ I don’t follow her but I was silently stalking her wondering what she thought of all this.
Earlier this year, Druckmann described the film as an "adaptation" of the game's story. "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," he said at the time. "We're only just scratching the surface."
"So the way it was left is they want me to do it, and I want to do it," she said. "But there's no script, no director, and no anything else. So at this moment, it's looking like, 'Yes,' but it’s still such early days. If they make it in 30 years, they can't have a 40-year-old Ellie. So at the moment, it's looking good, and I'd love to do it. Hell yeah."
With the sun setting on the casting period it now seems that Maisse Williams is 'game' to play Ellie in the new movie. Questions still remain unanswered for who will be cast in the role of Joel. We were thinking maybe someone along the lines of Gerard Butler, Liam Neeson or maybe Hugh Jackman??
