Are you ready to survive alongside Joel and Ellie?
One of the best-selling games in recent Playstation history is ‘The Last of Us’, a post-apocalyptic story in which nature takes revenge on humans by launching a deadly virus. He has just released his second installment (which has broken all sales records), and a film adaptation has long been rumored. In fact, Sam Raimi was attached to the project for a long time.
But HBO appeared and the plans changed: now the film was going into a series, with the creator of Chernobyl as showrunner. In this article we will update all the news of this highly anticipated adaptation.
‘The Last of Us’ Release Date
For now there is no definite release date. The creators have stated that they would begin work on the adaptation of the series once the second installment of the video game had been released, and that day was June 19, 2020.
It was recently announced that filming would begin on July 5, 2021 and last until June 8, 2022. A tremendously long production date, which heralds a large investment and, perhaps, the shooting of several seasons simultaneously. . However, we also know that the series will be released until 2023.
‘The Last of Us’ Synopsis
It is not yet clear whether only the first game or both that have been released will be adapted. But having delayed the pre-production of the project to wait for the launch of ‘The Last of Us II’ makes us think that it will be a mixture of both stories with new ramifications and characters. The main story is as follows:
Twenty years after a plague decimated civilization, the survivors cling to life in harsh quarantine zones. Outside, fierce infected and ruthless human bandits await. For Joel, day to day usually consists of going about his business, but when he is commissioned to accompany young Ellie in search of the Fireflies, a resistance group, both will put their will to survive to the limit.
