Craig Mazin continues to work alongside Neil Druckmann

While participating in the BBC's Must Watch program, Craig Mazin brought more details of his approach to the series The Last of Us. The screenwriter is very excited, despite the disappointment that the whole COVID-19 situation has delayed production.

'' We are creating new elements, and reimagining some things that have already been shown in the game. It is necessary to present everything within this new format. Our goal is not to make you fall in love with The Last of Us for the first time, but to remain in love in a different way. Instead of playing, this time it's a passive experience, just watching. So, we expect the experiences to be intense. I feel like we have something very good on our hands. ''

'' If you have already played, the intention is for that person to watch the series and say, 'It didn't violate anything I liked about the game. Instead, it brought me different things that I didn't know yet, and that were very welcome to this universe. '' '

Mazin also confirmed that we will have an important scene in the series and that it ended up being deleted by Neil Druckmann in the development of the original game.

'' It's jaw-dropping. We had to do it. It's curious why, for a long time they were trying to make a film, and I understand perfectly why it didn't work. It is all part of a journey. Scenes like this would not be well developed in this possible film. ''

The game's creator, screenwriter and creative director, Neil Druckmann, is involved in the production and will work alongside Craig Mazin, creator of the limited series Chernobyl. The project is a co-production of HBO with Sony Pictures Television and will be PlayStation Productions' first television series.

Originally released in 2013, The Last of Us was critically acclaimed for its fascinating post-apocalyptic story, centered on the relationship between Joel, a smuggler in this new world, and Ellie, a teenager who could be the key to a cure for the deadly pandemic. .

Joel is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl from an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal and moving journey, as they both need to cross the United States and depend on each other to survive.

The HBO series will cover the events of the original game, which was written by Druckmann, with the possibility of additional content based on the game's sequel, The Last of Us: Part II.

I like several different works, but with a tendency for strange and funny stories.
I like arts, games, drawings and interesting things.
