The first trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger post-apocalyptic drama Maggie has been released, and it certainly gives off a Last of Us vibe. In it, we see a bearded and flannel-wearing Schwarzenegger play the role of a father trying to protect his daughter (Abigail Breslin) during a zombie outbreak. Sound familiar?

That's roughly the same story of Naughty Dog's 2013 game The Last of Us. There are differences of course, but the general tone appears to be similar.

The similarities between Maggie and The Last of Us could be explained by the fact that Maggie director Henry Hobson also worked on The Last of Us as the director for the game's title sequence.

Maggie hits theaters in May.

Meanwhile, Sony and Naughty Dog are currently producing a movie based on The Last of Us. Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams is reportedly the front-runner to play Ellie, though no other casting details have been revealed. No release date for the project has been announced.

The Last of Us was originally released for PlayStation 3 in June 2013, while a Remastered version of the game later arrived for PlayStation 4. The game tells a post-apocalyptic story of a man (Joel) and a young women (Ellie) who are fighting to survive against humans and other deadly creatures.
