One of the best video games is about to become an HBO series… we hope to see Ellen Page as the star. PlayStation Productions is teaming up with World Games, Naughty Dog, and HBO, and Sony Pictures TV to bring the video game franchise The Last of Us to TV screens near you!
This adaptation will be set 20 years after the destruction of modern civilization and the story-line involves the smuggling of a 14-year-old Ellie out of quarantine by our hero Joel. The source material seems to stay intact and this promises to be an award-winning series with Jonah Renck at the helm to direct the pilot.
We can’t wait to see The Last of Us HBO premiere and look forward to the full Last of Us cast announcements. We would love to see some Latino representation in it as well since the video game was so much fun! Hopefully it’s as good as The Queens Gambit, our favorite series this year.
