After several months of development, the series The Last of Us inspired by the video game from the studio Naughty Boy is officially commissioned by HBO! Here is the first information to know.
Get ready to see the adventures of Joel and Ellie on the big screen! If several months ago, it was rumored that HBO was preparing a series based on the video game The Last of Us , this information is now official. The American channel has just announced the news on Twitter, specifying that Neil Druckmann, the creator of the game and Craig Mazin, behind the powerful mini-series Chernobyl will be the writers and executive producers of The Last of Us version series . They can also count on the support of Carolyn Strauss, who also worked on Game of Thrones . Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President of HBO Programming is totally convinced by her choice, describing “Craig and Neil as visionaries in a league of their own.” If three big names will therefore be responsible for transcribing and reproducing as well as possible the plot of the video game The Last of Us , fans hope not to be disappointed by the end result, as is often the case with adaptations of this genre. .
If HBO does not yet have a number of episodes or a release date to give us, the channel still reveals some details on the plot of the series. 20 years after the destruction of modern civilization, Joel, a man with a rather peculiar way of managing his survival, is tasked with rescuing a 14-year-old girl named Ellie from an “oppressive” quarantine zone. “What starts off as a small job will soon turn into a brutal and heart-wrenching journey, as the two have to cross the United States and lean on each other to survive,” the synopsis for The Last of Us states . It remains to be seen which actors will be chosen to play the two main heroes of the series , but while waiting to learn more, check out the first glimpse of Tom Holland as Nathan Drake in Uncharted , another video game-inspired film.
