The Last of Us series is one of the most promising game adaptations and it has finally won its major performers. In addition, it will have one of the best production teams ever, meaning the scenario is literally done.
Meanwhile, Deadline has announced that Pedro Pascal will be playing Joel on HBO’s The Last of Us. The actor has garnered a lot of attention for his roles in The Mandalorian, Wonder Woman 1984 and Game of Thrones. This announcement came shortly after the confirmation of Bella Ramsey, Game of Thrones strong Lyanna Mormont, as Ellie. So we finally have our two protagonists of the plot.
Durckmann celebrates Pedro Pascal’s announcement:
According to Deadline itself, Pedro Pascal struggled to compete in the series due to his schedule. However, as soon as there was a breach, the contract was closed, completing the protagonist duo Joel and Ellie, who are the focus of the storyline.
Technical quality of The Last of Us
Something that draws a lot of attention to the series is its production team. Craig Mazin, who was also responsible for the Chernobyl series, will write and direct the new series. Recall that Chernobyl won the Emmy for Best Miniseries of 2019, in addition to several other awards related to scripting and production. As if that wasn’t enough, alongside Craig, Neil Drukmann, the game’s creator and screenwriter himself, will also be part of the team, showing that the soul of the games will be there.
We also have Executive Producer Carolyn Strauss, President of Naughty Dog, one of the best game studios today, and who worked on The Sopranos and Evan Wells.
“Craig and Neil are visionaries themselves,” said Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO Programming. “With them at the helm alongside the incomparable Carolyn Strauss, this series is sure to resonate with both fans of The Last of Us games and newcomers to the saga. We are excited to be collaborating with Naughty Dog, Word Games, Sony and PlayStation to adapt this epic and powerfully immersive story.”
There’s still no date for the premiere of the series and no deadline for the start of production, so we remain excited.
