A new director is on board for the TV series The Last of Us.

Chernobyl’s Johan Renck was initially slated to direct the upcoming The Last of Us TV adaptation for HBO, but scheduling conflicts forced a change of plans. Now Beanpole’s Kantemir Balagov has stepped up to the plate as director. Craig Mazin, the series’ creator, is still attached to the upcoming TV adaptation as a writer and co-executive producer. The HBO adaptation will be a retelling of events from the first game; a violently heartbreaking tale set 20 years after the fall of civilization as we know it. The story revolves that of a smuggler named Joel and his father-esque relationship with a younger Ellie as they fight for survival against a fatal pandemic.
