The Last of Us actress Ashley Johnson who played the role of Ellie in the game has some specific request to the actress who will play Ellie in the movie and Troy Baker who played Joel in the game, well he just wants to be a clicker.
“Selfishly, the only requirement I would want is just that they love it as much as I do, which clearly is not going to happen, Johnson told IGN at Comic Con.
But to at least have played the game so they know what it was, but who knows if that’s going to happen. I know somebody could do an amazing job with it and I think they will.”
Meanwhile, Troy Baker says, “I want to be a clicker so bad. The beauty of what we do, with the game specifically, is that the face isn’t what you see, you see Joel.
I like some of that anonymity. For this specifically, what we have done with the characters lives within the game and is perfect for it.
It’s just as if someone goes out and does a different version of a play, I mean Billy Shakespeare is rolling over in his grave with how many people have done Macbeth, Hamlet and Richard III.
It’s the same play, but different actors have acted it, different directors have interpreted it with different sets and props, and even visions of what it is.”
He adds, “For it to exist in a different form is fantastic and I’m excited to see a different actor’s interpretation of these characters, as long as they get it.
I just want them to get it. But I hope they reveal something new about the character that I didn’t think of before as long as it’s true to the story and true to Joel. But yeah, I want to be a clicker. Head. Blown. OFF.”
The Last of Us Movie will be written by Neil Druckmann and produced by Sam Raimi.
