News culture The Last of Us: Neil Druckmann says more about the HBO series
In the production for HBO, the TV series The Last of Us will take over some dialogues directly from the original game, but also allow themselves some freedom, as Neil Druckmann explains in the columns of IGN.
The TV series The Last of Us, announced in March 2020, continues to take shape. HBO officially ordered a first season last November, and the first cast members were announced in February: Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian
In terms of the plot, Season 1 will adapt the first The Last of Us. But she also promises it “Fill in the gaps and expand the universe” Franchise, as Neil Druckmann, co-chair of Naughty Dog, said. He brought up the subject again IGN on the occasion of the SXSW 2021 event. According to him, the main thing was to maintain the “Philosophical Pillars of History” ::
We’ve talked at length about whether (Season 1 of the show) will adapt (the first game). Regarding superficial elements, e.g. B. Whether a character should wear the same plaid shirt or the same red shirt, these may or may not be included. For us it is far less important to understand who these characters are and how important their journey is (…). Some things are close (to the game). It’s funny to see my in-game dialogue in HBO history. And sometimes it diverges a lot to get a better result because we have to adapt to a different medium. For example, there is so much action in the game that players need to be taught the mechanics. There is more violence and spectacle than there is in a series (…) HBO did a good job keeping us away from the hardcore action and focusing more on the dramatic aspect of the characters. So far, some of my favorite episodes are the furthest from history and I can’t wait for people to see them.
Currently, no release date has been announced for this series, The Last of Us. Recall that Craig Mazin, creator of the Chernobyl miniseries, worked on the script alongside Neil Druckmann.
