Well, that's an unexpected and pleasant surprise!
If you're worried about the long history of video games getting butchered as film adaptations, fear not as Naughty Dog director Neil Druckmann will be partaking in the series' production, along with Craig Mazin of 'Chernobyl' fame.
Mazin praised Druckmann, stating that Druckmann is "without question the finest storyteller working in the video game medium."
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.”
Druckmann was equally complimentary of Mazin, stating that he was "was equally blown away by his approach to narrative and his love and deep understanding of The Last of Us."
With such talented figures at the helm, we're hoping that this HBO series turns out to be a memorable one!
