The Last of Us Series Begins Production
HBO’s much-awaited The Last of Us live-action series has finally begun production. The show’s star Gabriel Luna has shared an image from the set.
The set photo shows Luna as Tommy, Pedro Pascal as Joel, and Nico Parker as Sarah. According to Entertainment Weekly, the image may be hinting at the story of The Last of Us. The picture could be from the beginning of the story, where Joel, Sarah, and Tommy try to escape the fungus as it starts infecting people in their hometown. The series also stars Game of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey as Ellie and Merle Dandridge, voice actor of Marlene in the game, who reprises her role.
The first season of The Last of Us series is written by Craig Mazin. Mazin also serves as the executive producer alongside the game’s creator Neil Druckmann as well as Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Azad Qizilbash, and Carter Swan. The pilot will be directed by Kantemir Balagov.
The Last of Us series follows the story of the original game, which takes place 20 years after a fungal plague transforms infected people into zombies. Mazin has previously said that the HBO series will enhance the original game and it will feature a new storyline. The writer and executive producer said that Druckmann had talked about a jaw-dropping storyline that wasn’t included in the game. Mazin said, “There was one thing we were talking about for a while, and then he told me what it was, and I was like… jaw drop… OK… that’s going in. For sure, we have to do that. You will have to shoot me to stop me from doing that.”
