Is a Movie Based on The Last of Us in the Works?

ON

Could we be seeing Joel and Ellie on the big screen soon? IGN reports that Sony has registered the domain names TheLastofUs-movie.com and TheLastofUsmovie.net on November 25 via the online brand protection agency MarkMonitor. You can check out the listings by clicking the domain names above.

As the site points out, Sony might just be protecting its brand, but it’s fun to speculate. If a movie was coming, who do you think should play Joel and Ellie?

Developed by Naughty Dog (the “Uncharted” games), the PlayStation 3 exclusive was released on June 14. In the story, the population is decimated by a modern plague. Joel, a brutal survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together if they hope to survive their journey across the US.
