Sony Pictures has today announced that Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed title The Last of Us will not only be seeing a remastered version on PlayStation 4, but will also be seeing a silver screen release in the not-to-distant future.

Details are still to come on just what the movie will entail, with knowledge on what the movie's storyline will entail. Producer Sam Raimi, who is very well known for his work on the Evil Dead series, has apparently been contracted to work on the film. Sony hasn't confirmed who will be playing Joel and Ellie of the game, however according to some fans at the booth Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) has been name dropped for Joel while Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams who plays Arya Stark has apparently been contacted to play as Ellie.

Hopefully we'll be hearing more on the movie soon enough, but until then you can stare at the first-ever poster release below. What are your thoughts on video games to movie adaptations? Was Super Mario the best movie ever made? Let us know in the comments!

Whilst I'm sure Maise Williams will be fantastic for this role, I just wouldn't help myself seeing her as Ayra Stark especially if she were to run around with a bow & arrow, it would just be weird.

I still think Ellen Page should play Ellie

Bruce Campbell as Joel, absolutely not don't F*** with this film already with that nonsense...we need a quality actor to play as Joel, maybe Hugh Jackman...

Bruce Campbell is way too old and fat, Ellen Page is also too old.

Gerard Butler could work or Josh Brolin, Wolverine would also fit.

Man Sony is riding the train with this game. Honestly, the game felt somewhat more movie than game. All you'd need to do is practically film some of the gameplay action sequences for film and you'd pretty much be done.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the story, but when will games find their own innovative way for story telling rather than trying to copy Hollywood so as to appear legit to the world or something.

Hugh Jackman has similar roles under his belt - could see it easily.

Prisoners comes to mind.

could imagine Sam Worthington as a good casting for Joel, maybe Jude Law?

Kate would be a good choice still, probably

I think Viggo Mortensen would make for a great Joel, I thought Viggo was fantastic in The Road.

Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler and Brad Pitt would also be great actors for Joel. I don't know if Bruce Campbell make for a good Joel.

Maise Williams on the other hand seems like an excellent choice for Ellie in my opinion.

Christian Bale as whoever, and that Kick Ass chick for the chick.

Bruce would be ok, die his hair, and getting into shape etc is something actors do all the time, infact sometimes they must get super fat or super thin for rolls. So being FAT isn't a show stopper.

He looks the part there, the question is, his style of acting may not suit the character, however his latest movies do seem to show his more serious side. But Joel does have a comical side of him, so you don't want to have a robot playing the part.

Yeah for Joel I see:

1. Gerard Butler
2. Hugh Jackman
3. Viggo Mortensen
4. Christian Bale

They are all A list dudes though, would be hard to get them for a pic like this I imagine. Gerard did that Gamers movie and does slightly more indie films, so he might be up for it.

Defo Ellen Page for Ellie, it's basically her.

I'm hopeful this will be good.

I think that they should make a some what unknown cast to film this movie. I've seen a girl named Emily Browning in a few movies (Sucker Punch, The Uninvited). Which she is older like Ellen Page, but c'mon now... Ellen Page already joined up with a game around the same time The Last Of Us came out. If you're a true gamer you would know Beyond Two Souls. If that game made a movie then obviously their main character would be Ellen. My opinion: Masie Williams doesn't even look like Ellie's character.

Yeah I'm aware of that game, but come on.. Elle looks exactly like Ellen Page!
