Last of Us Voice Actor Claims There’s No Script For Part III Yet
In an interview, Jeffrey Pierce, the voice actor for Tommy Miller – Joel’s brother – explained that he’s yet to receive a script for The Last of Us Part III. He stressed that, as far as he knows, it’s ‘not something that has begun in any fashion’. Back in July, some potential casting information surfaced that suggested a completely separate story from what we’ve been exposed to thus far would be introduced, but nothing more was heard on that front.
Let Them Cook
Between The Last of Us (2013) and The Last of Us Part II (2020), there was a seven-year gap. This allowed Naughty Dog to construct one of the most monumental games the industry has ever seen, and that title aired just three years ago. So, if we work with the same timeline, it’s likely we won’t see The Last of Us Part III before 2027 – or perhaps later. In the meantime, the firm is working on remasters and the shadowy, mysterious multiplayer game that has been lurking under the surface for some time.
In an exclusive interview with Dexerto, Jeffrey Pierce (Tommy Miller) said that he hadn’t picked up a script from Naughty Dog, nor did he know of any project in the works to create one:
At this point it’s not something that has begun in any fashion, at least, not that I know of, and I would hate to set myself up to have expectations about what it would be and then have it be something completely different.
He did stress that he’s fully expecting a script to turn up at his door, though. There’s a glimmer of hope that we’re going to see either a prequel featuring Joel and Tommy’s earlier exploits in post-apocalyptic America, or we’ll see a continuation of the story post-Part II, which was the allusion at the end of 2020 title.
