Following closely after Netflix’s The Witcher, HBO has announced that they are working with Sony Entertainment to create a live-action television adaptation of The Last of Us.
For HBO’s new program, Warner Media is collaborating with Sony Pictures Television and the recently established PlayStation Productions to work on the said project.
There are currently no specifics on the narrative or if it will be directly based on the game.
However, it has been established that Craig Mazin, the executive producer of the popular drama Chernobyl, along with the game’s writer, Neil Druckman, are collaborating on the project.
The Last of Us’ narrative is great and regarded as one of the finest ever told in a gaming format. Therefore it would be a shame not to base the TV program on it.
The Last of Us, which was launched in 2013, mainly features Joel and Ellie’s journey through the dangerous United States.
The scenario of the game, set shortly, is a smart interpretation of the zombie genre with undertones of The Walking Dead’s drama.
Following Netflix’s The Witcher from the previous year and the impending Twisted Metal from Sony Productions, video game shows may be the next big thing in entertainment.
We all understand that movies based on video games are often bad, so this seems like it may work.
The Sonic the Hedgehog video game, which was just published, is now dominating the box office.
However, video game adaptations generally have not been very good, with Prince of Persia, Super Mario Bros., and the terrible Blood Rayne being the most notable ones on the roster.
There have been a few outliers that barely make the criteria, such as Warcraft and the Tomb Raider films starring Angelina Jolie, but they failed to justify the games.
In addition, even if the Resident Evil film series has intense action, Hitman and Max Payne are extremely unlike the games in this regard.
I do have some optimism for the impending Mortal Kombat film. Still, I believe it would do better if adapted into a television series like Warner Brothers’ fantastic Mortal Kombat Legacy.
Joel must navigate the perils of a post-apocalyptic world as he guides Ellie to a safe refuge.
Ellie and Joel’s friendship develops into a father-daughter one with several heartwarming moments as the game continues.
Due to an illness, humans have been changed into horrible beings known as Clickers because of their menacing noises.
Additionally, there are a large number of human survivors going on a killing spree to steal whatever they can.
Although a fight is always an option, the game mainly depends on stealth.
Fighting is fairly realistic, and Joel may be taken down with a few shots or solid blows.
Numerous prizes, including “Best Storytelling,” “Best Newcomer,” and “Studio of the Year” from Golden Joystick, were also awarded to the game.
Many gaming websites, including Gamespot, IGN, and Edge, gave the game a perfect score of 10.
A BAFTA for “Action and Adventure” and a DICE award for “Game of the Year” round out the list of honors.
The gaming community is now excitedly anticipating the sequel, which is scheduled to release at the end of May. The first game has historically been known as one of the best.
