The Last of Us creator Neil Druckmann recently shared a new piece of fan art envisioning Pedro Pascal in the leading role of Joel. He will star alongside Bella Ramsey’s Ellie in the upcoming live-action HBO series, which will adapt the critically acclaimed video game created by Druckmann and the Naughty Dog studio. The Last of Us currently has no set release date.
