The last of us is coming, HBO. The last of his game, director Neil Druckman, will team up with Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin on a television adaptation of The Last of US for HBO. According to The Hollywood REPORTER, Druckman will be involved in the creation of the HBO series. That’s a rarity for video game adaptations, and probably the best fit for this one is reticular, as the game creators aren’t usually directly involved with the process. Druckman and MASN will write and produce the show, which IGN has learned will apparently replace the movie that was long in development. So long I forgot it was happening by Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions, which co-produced the series. PlayStation Productions is a new film and TV division that was established last year. It’s also developing that uncharted movie with Tom Holland and another TV series based on Twisted Metal. Greg Mazin is best known for creating Two Thousand 19s award winning series Chernobyl about the nuclear disaster in Ukraine. MASN is reportedly a fan of video games overall and has called Druckman, quote, without question the finest storyteller working in the video game medium. Take that couldsee math and the last of us is his magnum opus. He continues on by saying Getting a chance to adapt this breathtaking work of art has been a dream of mine for years, and I’m so honored to do it in partnership with Neil. I think Chernobyl won a demure award. That’s true. Druckman also commented on the project, saying with Snowbowl, Craig and HBO created a tense, harrowing, emotional masterpiece. I couldn’t think of better partners to bring the story of the last of us to life as a television show. And on Twitter, Druckman said, quote, Alien Joel are heading to HBO. But first, we got a little game to finish. Indeed, the last of us, Part 2 is out May twenty ninth. For more on the game and the show, stay tuned. IGN. Challenge it.
