The Uncharted movie isn’t the only live-action adaptation based on the Naughty Dog on the horizon.
TheHollywoodRepoter has revealed that HBO is developing a series based on The Last of Us with Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin and the game’s writer Neil Druckmann working together on the series.
Craig Mazin, the creator of the acclaimed limited series Chernobyl, is reteaming with HBO to adapt The Last of Us, the massive Sony PlayStation video game franchise.
In a rare development in the world of video game adaptations, the writer and creative director of the game, Neil Druckmann, is also involved and will work with Mazin to pen and executive produce what is intended to be a series.
The mature aspect of the post-apocalyptic game seems perfect for HBO and they’ll be covering events that led up to the original game.
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.
At one time there had been plans to make a feature film.
