Yes to The Last of Us saga it was not enough for him to be one of the great successes in the video game industryIt seems that now they want to try their luck with other areas of entertainment, since, as we have known for years, the IP will have a series that will star Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, both being recognized faces of Game of Thrones, also of HBO who is producing the series for its platform.
Be that as it may, the information about this series comes to us, to a certain extent, by dropper, like the odd signing for well-known characters, among others. Nevertheless, today’s news is not about the actors, but rather the budget from which your salary comes and what each chapter will cost. And it is that, as it has been revealed, each episode will cost at least $ 10 million.
It is estimated that the cost of each chapter will be at least 10 million
Knowing that HBO plans to produce a first season with 10 episodes, of which it is unknown if it will cover all or only part of the first game, It seems obvious that HBO wants to put all the meat on the grill with the series, since with such figures it would be almost on par with what was in its day Game of Thrones.
This has been known due to a report from the association of artists and cinematographic technicians of the region where the series is being filmed, since the president of this association has affirmed that The Last of Us series exceeds 8 figures per episode, which has helped a lot to improve the economy of the locality where it is carried out. Also, this is equivalent to that we know that each episode will cost at least 10 million, but this could go even more.
Be that as it may, Doing the full season would cost at least $ 100 million, which would exceed the budget for the eighth season of Game of Thrones, which, with its 6 chapters of 15 million each, remained at 90 million dollars. HBO’s confidence in the series The Last of Us is clear, which will present some differences with respect to the game. It only remains to wait to see if the audience corresponds according to the budget.
