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?
