It’s been revealed that filming for HBO’s eagerly anticipated The Last of Us TV show could start filming as early as July.
This information was revealed via a listing found on the Director’s Guild of Canada, which was then reported on by Canadian news site CBC. The listing reveals that filming for HBO’s The Last of Us TV show is said to begin in Calgary on July 5th and finish by June 8th the following year. The same site mentions that there have been “rumors of a massive production” coming to Calgary for a few months.
It was announced a while ago that Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann and Chernobyl writer Craig Mazin would be working together to revisit Ellie and Joel’s story in The Last of Us as a TV adaptation. In an interview with BBC Radio 5, Mazin talked about a potential plot, claiming that the show will expand upon the original story. He also claims that the TV adaptation may deviate from what people expect, but the show will still follow the events of the first game.
It was also announced in February this year that Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey would be playing the parts of Joel and Ellie respectively. Pascal is well-known for his lead role in The Mandalorian as well as his role as Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones. Likewise, Bella Ramsey is also well-known for her role as noblewoman Lyanna Mormont in Game of Thrones as well. Currently, only Joel and Ellie have been cast, with other key characters like Tommy and Marlene still yet to be confirmed.
As for the game series, we know that Naughty Dog is currently working on a standalone multiplayer game set in The Last of Us universe. What form this could take is still unknown, but many are hoping for something similar to the Factions multiplayer mode that was included in the first game. It’s likely we’ll hear more about Naughty Dog’s mystery multiplayer game at some point later this year.
