HBO adapting The Last of Us

The blockbuster Playstation video game series The Last of Us is getting a television adaption.

Neil Druckmann (WGA and BAFTA Award-winning writer and director) and Craig Mazin (Emmy, Golden Globe and WGA Award-winner for HBO’s Chernobyl) will develop the production.

The project is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and in association with PlayStation Productions.

Just like the game, the story will take place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

The journey across the U.S. and depend on each other to survive zombies, gangs of raiders and whatever else the apocalypse has thrown at them.

The HBO series will cover the events of the original game, which was written by Druckmann, with the possibility of additional content based on the forthcoming game sequel, The Last of Us Part II, which will release on May 29th.

No premiere or release date for the series has been announced.
