Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams approached to star as Ellie in The Last of Us movie

The Last of Us movie scriptwriter Neil Druckmann has approached Maisie Williams (famous for her role as Arya Stark on the hit HBO show Game of Thrones) for the lead female role of Ellie.

The possible actress choice was revealed during the Screen Gems panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. However, no casting for the movie is set in stone at this time and still in talks, especially with its release being a few years down the road.

The Last of Us movie will be written by the original game’s writer and co-director Neil Druckmann while being produced by Sam Raimi, director of the original Spider-Man trilogy and Evil Dead. Their intention is to create a faithful theatrical adaptation of Naughty Dog’s gaming masterpiece.
