News culture The Last of Us: Are you planning to film the series soon? Posted on 04/02/2021 at 07:43 With the films Uncharted and Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us series is one of the adaptation projects from Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions that we want on screen. Today we are being given some new details regarding the planning of the film crew. The information discovered by the CBC comes from the Directors Guild of Canada, which has more than 5,500 members in the film industry. We learn from a document that filming of the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us series would begin in the cosmopolitan city of Calgary on July 5, 2021 and end on June 8, 2022. Dates that would also be supported by the Calgarys International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees again, according to the CBC. Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey Recall that the HBO channel officially ordered the first season of this series last November. The first cast members were announced in February: Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian, Game of Thrones) will play Joel, while Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) will play Ellie to form the popular duo in the Naughty Dog saga. No transmission date has yet been announced. Craig Mazin, creator of the Chernobyl miniseries, is working on the script alongside Neil Druckmann.
What about the plot?
Regarding the plot of The Last of Us series, we recently learned that Season 1 will adapt the first part of The Last of Us. Note, however, that it promises to “fill in the gaps and expand the universe,” as reported by Neil Druckmann, co-chair of Naughty Dog. He adds to IGN journalists that the main thing is to maintain the “philosophical pillars of history”. One topic that was touched on a few days ago: We had a long discussion about whether (Season 1 of the series) will adapt (the first game). Regarding superficial elements, e.g. B. Whether a character should wear the same plaid shirt or 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. From Tiraxa, writing from jeuxvideo.com MP
