HBO's 'The Last of Us' Pilot Has Found a Director

Johan Renck, who helmed the miniseries Chernobyl, will direct 'The Last of Us' pilot for HBO.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "The writer and creative director of the game, Neil Druckmann, will work with Mazin to pen and executive produce the series."

T'The Last of Us' takes us 20 years after a pandemic has radically changed known civilization. Infected humans run wild and survivors are killing each other for food, weapons, and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a violent survivor, is hired to smuggle a 14 year-old girl, Ellie, out of an oppressive military quarantine zone, but what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal journey across the U.S.
