Neil Druckmann to Direct Some of The Last of Us HBO Series - News

Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann is one of five directors for the first season of the upcoming The Last of Us HBO TV series, according to the Directors Guild of Canada website. 

The first season of the show will adapt the first game in the franchise. However, some episodes will "deviate greatly" due to the game and HBO series being in a different medium. 

The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal plays Joel and Bella Ramey, best known for her role as Lyanna Mormont in HBO's Game of Thrones, plays Ellie. 

The pilot episode wrapped up filming last month, according to director Kantemir Balagov.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel dedicated to gaming Let's Plays and tutorials.

Everyone will get massive overtime. Complain how badly they are treated then the series will be praised for curing cancer and they will make a solid gold statue of Drunkman!

Bit of a typo in there with Bella Ramsey being called Bella Ramey.

Otherwise thanks for the update. I will be interested in seeing how this turns out.

Fingers crossed that it won't be riddled with needless political crap. It might be decent without that.

Complainers are so brainless. Did people forget Neil made the first game as well? You know, the game you think is superior to the second one?

I like both, not sure Neil would be a good series director, but I`m willing to give him a chance. My only concern is that most game adaptation to other medias have been bad.
