We now formally have our Joel in the upcoming The Last of Us TELEVISION series from HBO. With the verified news of Game of Thrones’ Bella Ramsey handling the function of Ellie, it has actually now been verified that fellow Game of Thrones star and The Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal will be handling the function of Joel. 

As reported by DeadlinePascal has actually formally signed the offer to play Joel, a negative survivor that is worked with to smuggle a girl to security. That lady, Ellie, and he established a father/daughter bond in an unsafe world filled with loss and death. 

The upcoming series will happen throughout the occasions of the very first video game and is indicated to “improve” what lots of fell for throughout the start of Joel and Ellie’s journey together. Naughty Dog is operating in combination with Sony Pictures Television, Word Games, and The Mighty Mint for this adjustment, with Kantemir Balagov (Beanpole) set to direct along with Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) as co-executive manufacturer and lead author. 

According to a previous interview with Druckmann, the developer of the computer game itself, Mazin has a “deep understanding” of the world that Naughty Dog developed. While the main synposis hasn’t been launched at this time, nor have we found out anymore about the cast, having our 2 primary characters verified is a strong initial step when discovering more about the approaching program. 

Between Star Wars’ Din Djarin and Game of Thrones’ Lyanna Mormont, the upcoming HBO series is currently loading a mean punch when it concerns skill taking these characters to brand-new heights.
