Gustavo Santaolalla is set to return for the HBO adaptation of The Last Of Us. Neil Druckmann, the series co-creator, confirmed the news via Twitter. Druckmann hailed Santaolalla for his “incredible musical talent”. As an Academy-Award winning composer, Santaolalla has produced music for Brokeback Mountain, Narcos: Mexico and the Netflix true-crime documentary, Making A Murderer.

Santaolalla was nominated by VGX and Bafta Games Awards for the game’s score. In the tweet, Druckmann said: “Santaolalla is joining us to bring over The Last of Us to HBO!” So, Santaolalla will offer his musical services to the TV adaptation, a promising sign that HBO will deliver an adaptation worthy of the critically acclaimed game.

Let’s tally up what we now know. A list of characters has been confirmed, and Craig Mazin is teaming up with Druckmann. With this latest news of Gustavo Santaolalla’s return, it’s a good sign this adaptation is headed in the right direction.

In other news, Neil Druckmann announced the first characters set for the adaptation. The game’s co-director is working with Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin to transform the post-pandemic game into a TV series. It’ll be no surprise that the shortlist includes notable major characters. In a post from Druckmann, while quote-tweeting an HBO post of International Women’s Day, he said: “And now you have Ellie, Riley, Tess, Marlene, Maria, [redacted], and a few others!”

The mystery of the redacted four-letter name could have a variety of outcomes. First and foremost, there’s Joel, and there’s also Dina, Ellie’s love interest seen in the trailers for The Last Of Us 2. Plus, there’s also Anna, Ellie’s mother, unseen within The Last Of Us.
