Petition to cast Ellen Page in the "The Last of Us" live-action movie
And four other ways for Hollywood not to destroy the video game.
No, I can’t sign on this petition to cast Ellen Page as Ellie in the Last of Us film because, and you guys can hate me for this, I want to see an actual 14-year old play a 14-year old character actually in a film. Something never seemed right about having adults play teens in television and film projects. I mean, yeah, she played a teen in Juno and X-Men: The Last Stand, but she was actually closer to the ages of the characters she played in real life, and if they cast her as Ellie, she’d be twice the heroine’s age.
And besides, I really doubt she’d want to be associated with a film based on a game that she feels ripped off her likeness.
Fans shouldn’t be trusted to cast films.
