‘The Last of Us’ – what do we know about the game adaptation?
The Last of Us is based on the hugely popular video game from Naughty Dog. The series takes place 20 years after the fall of civilization due to a deadly fungus. Joel (played by Pedro Pascal) is assigned to extract 14-year-old Ellie (Bella Ramsey) from the quarantine area and bring her to an organization looking for a cure. The arrangement seems simple. However, it soon turns out otherwise, and Joel and Ellie will have to learn to rely on each other if they are to survive their travels across a devastated United States.
Chernobyl director Craig Mazin and The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann are in charge of the project. The pilot episode will be directed by Kantemir Bakaju, author of the award-winning film “Tall Girl”. The directing list will also include Yasmila Zabanish (“Aida”) and Ali Abbasi (“Borders,” “holly spider”).
The cast also includes Merle Dandridge, Nick Offerman, Nico Parker, Gabriel Luna, Anna Torv, Storm Reid, Jeffrey Pierce, and Murray Bartlett.
