The plot places us in an apocalypse: a dangerous virus is unleashed in the world, turning humans into cannibal beasts capable of infecting others with a simple bite. Amid the dire scenario, Ellie and Joel, two survivors, make their way on a mission that will put their lives in danger, but will also change them forever. Winner of endless awards, The last of us has become one of the most powerful and influential video games in recent years.
The Directors Guild of Canada includes Neil Druckmann, also a scriptwriter of the game, as one of the four directors who will be in charge of the first season of The last of us. It seems that the senior lords of HBO saw the person who gave life to the endearing story as an essential element and will involve him as a fundamental member of the team.
