According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot episode of The Last of Us TV series will now be directed by Beanpole helmer Kantemir Balagov which was co-written by Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and The Last of Us video game creative director Neil Druckmann. Last October, it was reported that he's attached to direct an Adam Sandler science fictin movie called The Spaceman of Bohemia, so perhaps that's the project that's causing the conflict here.

"Holy shit, Joel!" First false start for the série The Last of Us HBO which started off so well with a dream team in the making, a weakened cast because Johan Renck - director of Chernobyl - will no longer be able to direct the pilot due to a scheduling problem. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle the 14-year-old girl out of an oppressive quarantine zone.

Balagov, who is of Circassian origin, is best known for directing the somber Russian-language dramas Closeness and Beanpole.

Balagov's bleak aesthetic is likely a key factor in HBO's decision to hire him, likely ensuring a dark tone congruent with the harrowing story of the original game, and likely going well with the writer and executive producer.

Produced by Sony, the series is now under development at HBO. Closeness, about a poor families in a small town dealing with a kidnapping, was well-received when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017, resulting in Balagov winning the festival's FIPRESCI Prize in the Un Certain Regard competition.

Beanpole, a drama centered on two women in Leningrad post-WWII, was selected as Russia's entry for Best Picture of for the 92nd Academy Awards in 2019, but was ultimately not selected for the final gala.
