We've known for a while now that Naughty Dog's The Last of Us is going to be made into a movie. We've even seen the logline:

Hardened survivor Joel teams with young and capable companion Ellie to journey through a radically transformed world some 20 years after an infectious pandemic ravages humanity. The game has won numerous awards and has been a big seller since its release last summer.

But today, Sam Raimi surprised San Diego Comic-Con attendees by announcing he will not be directing the feature film adaptation. However, he did also say that as producer he has met with Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams for the lead role of Ellie. Meanwhile, we've also known that Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann, the game's creative director is also writing the script for the film.

What's more, we also got our first look at the special SDCC limtied edition poster for The Last of Us movie.
