On the 777 the control wheels and thrust levers move to replicate what the autopilot/authrottle is doing is doing...as for your specific example of an engine failure the 777 also has a clever little feature ("TAC") which will in most cases apply rudder to at least partially compensate for an engine failure. In that case the rudder pedals do indeed move to reflect what TAC is demanding.
