It seems like a coincidence that these days there is so much talk about adaptations of video games to series or movies, but the sector has been an important source of ideas in recent years. Two days ago Netflix announced the film adaptation of BioShock, yesterday Paramout+ renewed the Halo series before its premiere and today we talk about The Last of Us.
The most important thing about the interview with Casey Bloys, head of HBO programming, in The Hollywood Reporter is that the adaptation of the video game The Last of Us is moving forward, but that it will not end in 2022.
At this very moment the adaptation of the Naughty Dog video games is being filmed in Calgary, a Canadian city, with Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as the main protagonists who are looking for a cure for the disease that it’s done with society.
