It seems that Naughty Dog director and studio head Neil Druckman is looking to write more stories for The Last of Us series.
The Last of Us series is scheduled to air on HBO in the coming weeks. The success of this series can be considered a turning point for Neil Druckman and Craig Mazin’s career. In their recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, they talked about Sam Raimi’s interest in The Last of Us. Neil Druckmann said that Sam Raimi was very close to starting pre-production on The Last of Us with Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones actress) or Caitlin Dever (Booksmart actress) as Ellie. Druckman also spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the series’ connection to future installments of the popular franchise.
According to “Hollywood Reporter” magazineThe first season of The Last of Us series will be a direct adaptation of the first issue of the game; But Neil Druckman has not yet officially confirmed that the story of the second season of the series has a direct reference to the second issue of the game. Druckman’s goal in the field of cinema and television is to adapt games in the manner of cinematic works. Of course, he mentioned that he does not intend to go ahead of the content of the books like in the series “Game of Thrones” (Game of Thrones) and then hit a dead end in providing a proper ending:
We have no plans to tell a story other than a direct adaptation of the games. Given that The Last of Us 2 ended at an unknown point, we don’t want to make a Game of Thrones mistake.
The rumor of making The Last of Us 3 game
Recently, there were rumors about the development of The Last of Us 3 in the news media, which Druckman did not completely deny. He claimed that The Last of Us franchise has the potential to offer more stories to gamers. He plans to build a new writing room for his next project.
