The game is being developed by Naughty Dog, the team best known for their work on the Uncharted franchise.

A girl that "sounds like Haley Joel," according to Garnett and "looks like Ellen Paige" according to Xav appears to be the game's main protagonist. See for yourself:

The PlayStation.Blog has been updated with the game's premise:

The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven tale about a modern plague decimating mankind. Nature encroaches upon civilization, forcing remaining survivors to kill for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave young teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
