Hot off the announcement of an Uncharted film adaptation, Naughty Dog‘s The Last of Us was officially confirmed to be making its way to the big screen as well.

During today’s Screen Gems panel at the San Diego Comic Con, it was announced that The Last of Us film adaptation will be written by its own director, Neil Druckmann, and produced by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Spider-Man). Horror fans can rejoice as well, as Evil Dead/Army of Darkness cult icon Bruce Campbell is set to play the lead role of Joel, while Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams will suit up as Ellie.

What do you think of the casting call so far?

    1. Sweet indeed! Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell together? I’m instantly sold, even if I somewhat feel Bruce Campbell doesn’t fit Joel all that well.

      1. Yeah, not my first pick (not that I have one), but he might do this very well. Toned down and angry. I think it’ll be grrrreat!

  1. I’m hoping Bruce just gets shredded and delivers the performance of his career, launching him back into the spotlight as a major actor.

    1. Yeah, I love Bruce almost as much as I love Tony Todd, but the last time I saw him he didn’t look like he’d be ready to take on the role of Joel.
