[RUMOR] HBO offered Mahershala Ali the lead role in ‘The Last of Us’ series

Published

According to The Illuminerdi, rumors suggest that HBO has gifted the lead role in the upcoming game adaptation “The Last of Us” to Oscar winner Mahershala Ali.

If the rumors are true, this will be the first official casting announcement since production went green in November of last year. Ali will bring Joel to life, and according to the news, no other actor has been mentioned.

Russian filmmaker Kantemir Balagov was recruited to direct the pilot episode, replacing Johan Renck, who had to leave the project due to scheduling conflicts.

Craig Mazin (“Chernobyl“) remains linked as producer and screenwriter.

In an interview with the BBC, Mazin revealed that the plot will expand the universe of games, making it clear that the series will not change the main elements of the games, just bring more information.

“If you’ve played ‘The Last of Us’ before, our intention is for you to watch the program and say,’ It didn’t violate anything that I liked about the game. We won’t change a thing, whether in relation to the plot or the characters, but we will bring a lot more information about this universe. Believe me, the story is very large and leaves room for many new ideas, some really amazing ideas.

The production is the result of a partnership between Naughty Dog, HBO, Sony Pictures Televison and PlayStation Productions, which will make its debut in creating television series.

Still without a start date, the project will also have Neil Druckmann (one of the game’s creators) as executive producer and will feature Carolyn Strauss and Evan Wells, chairmen of Naughty Dog, as additional producers.

Enjoy watching:

Released in 2013, ‘The Last of Us’ takes place in a post-apocalyptic future and follows the journey of drug dealer Joel and young Ellie, the only one capable of finding a cure for the disease that has devastated the world. .
