The new drama series, The Last Of Us is currently in production at HBO. Based on the critically acclaimed video game by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation platforms, the story takes place twenty years after modern civilization has been destroyed.
Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heart-breaking journey, as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
During the recent Summer Game Fest, Neil Druckmann, Co-President of Naughty Dog and Co-Creator, Executive Producer, Writer, and Director of The Last of Us was joined onstage by Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker, who voiced Ellie and Joel in “The Last of Us” and “The Last of Us Part II” video games.
Johnson and Baker announced that they will appear in HBO’s The Last of Us series playing characters different from those they voiced in the games. Previously announced cast members include Bella Ramsey, Pedro Pascal, Gabriel Luna, Merle Dandridge, Nico Parker, Murray Bartlett, Nick Offerman, Jeffrey Pierce, and Anna Torv.
