Chloë Grace Moretz To Play Ellie in The Last of Us Movie?

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 already been confirmed as some girl from game of thrones.

BitbyDeath1194d ago

Maisie isn't 100% confirmed yet, but is very likely getting the role.

Ripsta7th1194d ago

They should put this girl instead of the one from game of thrones , the other one is uglier

DeadIIIRed1193d ago

They really should use Chloe. I watched Should I Stay recently and while the movie was crap, I did think at one point she would make a great Ellie

DeadRabbits1193d ago

I called this months ago! Hope it happens!

Lord_Sloth1193d ago

Personally I'm pulling for Williams to get the role over Moretz. Nothing against the latter, I just think Williams is a better actress. Moretz comes off as smug. Don't get me wrong, she was perfect for Hit Girl, but I don't really think she'd be a good Ellie.

GameSpawn1193d ago

I'm fine with either as long as they can act the part. They both are already close enough in look. The only question is can they deliver a good performance worthy of the one portrayed in the game?

UltraNova1193d ago

Hugh Jackman and Chloë Grace Moretz would be the perfect twin to play Joel and Ellie IMO...they're both top notch actors and with Neil behind the wheel I have no doubt the movie adaptation can succeed.

The girl from Gilmore Girls could be Ellie, but I think she may be to old now. Don't ask me why I know any of this....

slinky1234561194d ago

Then why are you saying this!? HUH!?!?!?!?!

Letthewookiewin1191d ago

Haha its Alexis Bledel. I think is her name. Perfect though.

Good god I hope not, she would just end up coming off as Hit Girl, not Ellie.

I'd rather have Maisie Williams, she has the build for it in my opinion and looks younger then she is unlike Chole. Plus she is a fantastic actress

"According to KpopStarz, Hugh Jackman"

Least they got one casting right

Malphite1194d ago

This will probably get canceled anyway like 95 percent of all video game movies. I never understood why we need them anyway.

A game like TLOU that already has very memorable characters is even harder to turn into a movie because you won't get the same actors that worked on the game. That's enough to ruin it for me.

Geekman1194d ago

I have yet to read a positive comment from you.

-Foxtrot1194d ago

Then you aren't looking very far

Just yesterday....keep trying though :)

kingdomtriggers1194d ago

He does come across as a negative Nancy doesn't he? lol

Pogmathoin1194d ago

You turned your own positive comment into a negative with the AC reference. Apart from the other negative comments, being ugly and so on, this role should go to an unknown, so it will be about Ellie, and not the actress playing her. But are Hollywood producers afraid of doing that?

WombBat1194d ago

Not sure either should play ellie honestly

chaldo1194d ago

I am with you on that.

LOGICWINS1194d ago

I agree with Foxtrot. Didn't like her in the Equalizer.

boodi1194d ago

classic hooker role there .. problem is she's way taller , and older than ellie so i can't figure out how could she play ellie

I want Nicholas Cage to pay Ellie.

I have a theory that he can play ANY ROLE with a passing level of competence. The "swiss army knife" of actors.

Nicholas Cage is a....National treasure

Ezz20131194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

Nicolas Cage as Ellie and Bruce willis as Joel
with Lady Gaga as Tess

let's do it

LightDiego1194d ago (Edited 1194d ago )

Or Adam Sandler could be Joel and Ellie, at the same time.
I thought that Maisie Williams would be Ellie, i prefer her for the role.

Harold_Finch1194d ago

Adam Sandler is actually my choice for Joel, not sarcasm, he actually is.

He is a fantastic actor and one who would win an Oscar, if he wanted to.

Tedakin1194d ago

I like her but isn't she a good bit older than Ellie?

Clown_Syndr0me1194d ago

I hope this movie doesn't suck, like Tomb Raider, Max Payne, Resident Evil, Blood Rayne, Tekken movie, Far Cry, Hitman, Doom and ofcourse Mortal Kombat.

Only movie-games I liked were a couple of the Resi Evils, Need For Speed and Silent Hill..

Catdawgg1194d ago

The tekken movies were gr8 tho

CernaML1194d ago

The first Mortal Kombat was great! Fight scene after fight scene with awesome cheesy 90s techno in the background. :P
