HBO has greenlit the new television adaptation of The Last of Us.
Hollywood Reporter confirms the project is progressing under the watch of Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin and the game’s writer Neil Druckmann, alongside PlayStation Productions, Word Games, and, of course, Naughty Dog.
“Craig and Neil are visionaries in a league of their own,” said HBO Programming executive VP Francesca Orsi. “With them at the helm alongside the incomparable Carolyn Strauss, this series is sure to resonate with both die-hard fans of The Last of Us games and newcomers to this genre-defining saga. We’re delighted to partner with Naughty Dog, Word Games, Sony and PlayStation to adapt this epic, powerfully immersive story.”
