The Last of Us is without doubt one of the many videogames getting a TV sequence adaptation and it seems like the person behind Joel himself is wanting in on that motion. Voice actor Troy Baker, who voices the lead within the first Naughty Dog sport, has expressed curiosity in being part of the upcoming The Last of Us TV sequence beneath one situation: he would not play Joel.
In a latest episode of the podcast ‘Relater in Real Time,’ Baker expressed his within the Last of Us TV present following a dialogue in regards to the upcoming Uncharted film starring Tom Holland as a a lot youthful Nathan Drake. The curiosity within the present got here from the query as as to whether or not he would ever be interested by turning into the voice of Joel as soon as extra for the video games. While Baker did not appear interested by that notion, he did add that he could be interested by taking part in a small function within the upcoming present adaptation. More than that, he mentioned “I wanna be blown up by Joel,” which, would after all, put a damper on taking part in Joel himelf. But who is aware of, there have been weirder plotlines ( you, Lost).
While Baker expressed his curiosity in a smaller function as to not overshadow the brand new solid, it does form of make me need to see him be included. Not solely as a enjoyable extra nod to the video games, however Baker’s repertoire in live-action films is fairly small and within the Phoenix Rising film, poor dude acquired ripped to shreds by aliens.
As for the Last of Us TV sequence itself, artistic director Neil Druckmann will probably be working alongside Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin to carry this story to life based mostly off of the primary sport within the sequence. “Neil Druckmann is without question the finest storyteller working in the video game medium, and The Last of Us is his magnum opus,” Mazin talked about in a earlier interview. “Getting a chance to adapt this breathtaking work of art has been a dream of mine for years, and I’m so honored to do it in partnership with Neil.”
“From the first time I sat down to talk with Craig I was equally blown away by his approach to narrative and his love and deep understanding of The Last of Us,” added. We do not have all the particulars relating to the upcoming present, little or no is definitely identified in regards to the narrative route and artistic liberties, however we do know that it adapt the primary sport and can “enhance” what followers beloved about their entry into this world.
It will probably be fascinating to see if Baker will get his want and the way the Last of Us TV sequence will progress. We do not have a launch date presently, however our vote is let the person have a component!
