Filming on HBO's live-action adaptation of The Last Of Us is now fully underway, and it looks like the production team is currently putting together its own version of original game's infamous prologue.
Naughty Dog's 2013 masterpiece starts on the night of the 2013 Cordyceps outbreak that ends the world as we know it. Joel, his daughter Sarah, and brother Tommy desperately attempt to escape Austin, Texas in the midst of the chaos - but not before Sarah is shot and killed by a soldier. The main events of The Last Of Us kick off 20 years later, but this prologue is essential to the entire story, and clearly not something HBO intends to skip.
Take a look at some of the best opening scenes in video games - including The Last Of Us - below!
New set photos of the HBO show shared by Twitter user @necromonica1 (via VGC) indicate that the game's prologue is almost certainly what's currently being filmed. While we don't know for sure just yet, the undamaged police cars and clean streets strongly imply that whatever is being filmed is from just before/during the initial viral outbreak. It certainly doesn't look post-apocalyptic, does it?
It also wasn't that long ago that set photos revealed Joel (Pedro Pascal), Sarah (Nico Parker), and Tommy (Gabriel Luna) all in the car together. There's only one time these characters are in the same car, and it's when they're trying to get the hell out of Austin. Between these newest set photos and the actors' car selfie, it's clear that we're in for a truly gut-wrenching first episode of The Last Of Us when it airs next year. Start as you mean to go on, I guess.
