    Never played this series, but Mazin's involvement is what gets me excited about this project.

    I liked Chernobyl and Last Of Us so I’ll check it out. I think this is a much better format to adapt the game series than a movie will ever be.

    Not sure I see the point in this but at least it will be good; loved Chernobyl.

    Chernobyl is trash, and what are they gonna do with TLOU? Adapting the games story? It's not interesting, imo. New stuff set in the world? I don't have much faith in trashmakers. And Druckman probably better stick to what he does really well - making new games.

    Since GoT ended and Westworld seems to be heading to the end, HBO needs a big hit on their hands. This would easily fill that void if they do it right.

    This is why some people shouldn't be allowed to watch things

    The only reason OutOfBoose doesn't like Chernobyl is because he's Russian.

    Excellent news! Always thought that this would work far better as a show than a movie.

    About casting... Hugh Jackman would be a big get for Joel, but I can see them choosing Justin Theroux who's already worked with HBO.

    That's a good pick, I could see Justin as Joel. He was great in The Leftovers, I wouldn't mind that

    Carrie Coon as Tess.

    Dominique Tipper or Hannah John-Kamen as Marlene. Lupita Nyong'o would be great for the role too.

    Oh here's the gif police again.

    My comment wasn't directed to Chernobyl, but The Walking Dead fyi.

    I want an age appropriate Ellie. I’ve seen McKenna Grace and Dafne Keen’s name thrown around. They’re perfect age wise.

    Own PS4, never played game. Not interested for now. But HBO series by Chernobyl producers, yes sign me up. Now i wonder how long before fan casting starts with Gerard Butler rumors
