The Last of Us is almost in our eyeballs. The new HBO series just wrapped production today and in order to celebrate, they shared an image from the series.
The series stars Pedro Pascal, Bella Ramsey and Gabriel Luna. It is a direct adaptation of the 2013 Naughty Dog game by the same name.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us has always been very cinematic on its own and pitted you between fungi based zombies with the worst of civilization in the post apocalyptic world. It will be interesting to see how much more cinematic the actual series can be when compared to the game.
The synopsis for The Last of Us went like this:
Set in the post-apocalyptic United States, the game tells the story of survivors Joel and Ellie as they work together to survive their westward journey across what remains of the country to find a possible cure for the modern fungal plague that has nearly decimated the entire human race.
Writer from the game, Neil Druckman has returned to bring the HBO series to life and to tell the story to a whole new audience who hasn’t played the games.
It will be interesting to see if the series has anything new to offer gamers who have already played through the experience or if it will be a complete clone of the game.
