Still not much is confirmed about this Sam Raimi production. Fans all over the globe are clamouring for information and with none forthcoming any little titbit is devoured instantaneously. So with that in mind grab your proverbial knife and fork and get a load of this:
Neil Druckmann, writer of the game and responsible for scripting duties in its film iteration, had this to say “I just finished the second draft and we did a table read with a bunch of actors. It’s pretty faithful to the game. There are some big changes, but the tone and what the story’s trying to say is pretty faithful.”
No word on who the actors are, no word on what the big changes are, no word on anything really. Game of Thrones star, Maisie Williams has been in talks for the role of Ellie but as of yet no contracts have been signed.
Hopefully one of the big changes will be the end, not that there is anything fundamentally wrong with the finale. Indeed Naughty Dog’s wonder has a quite heartbreaking conclusion but having seen it once the revelation would lack something the second time around.
