During an appearance on the Scripnotes podcast, Craig Mazin, writer and producer of the HBO adaptation of ‘The Last of Us’, revealed how many episodes the first season of the highly anticipated series will have.
Details little by little
According to the information revealed by the brilliant mind behind ‘Chernobyl’, ‘The Last of Us’ will have a total of 10 episodes in its first season, and for the execution of them they have selected five directors.
The details of the trailers for ‘The Last of Us’ have been revealed little by little. As they would say: “at the pace of winners.” On this occasion, Mazin revealed that the “teams” for the direction and direction of photography for each episode have already been made, but did not give more information on specific names.
Ali Abbasi, Kantemir Balagov and Jasmila Zbanic are known to be among the five names selected to direct episodes of the long-awaited adaptation of the popular video game.
Previously, they announced the name of the actress who would be in charge of playing Sarah, the daughter of the protagonist of this story, Joel, who will be played by Pedro Pascal. Likewise, they also revealed that the production of the series will begin this month, so the filming schedule is already set.
Mazin said filming for the show will largely take place during the day, especially since Calgary – the location for the filming – only has “about 4 1/2 hours of adequate darkness” for night scenes.
The creator of the video game, Neil Druckmann is also part of the project, which if you ask us, we think it is HBO’s most promising since ‘Game of Thrones’. Let’s see, it is not that the premieres of the television and transmission network have not had good releases, but nothing screams “success” like a live action adaptation, especially if it is done in the right way.
If there’s “anyone” who can get her out of the park with this, it’s HBO. We hope we are not putting our hands in the fire in vain.
