The last of us is at work on HBO
A report from Canada describing a 12-month production plan points to a massive budget for eight characters per episode for the new show. The last of us will also star two Game of Thrones veterinarians, as Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey will star Joel and Ellie.
A local official, in the Alberta city of Fort Macleod, told a local news outlet that the show’s budget represents a huge financial stimulus for the area. “The last of us, starting photography this week is really a monster, ”said Damian Petti.
