Project Spores is an upcoming fan film inspired by The Last Of Us – or more specifically, its sequel – which has just revealed its first teaser.
Described on its YouTube channel as “a collaborative project bringing cosplayers and creatives together”, the non-profit fan project is producing “a series of photoshoots and a fan film” based on The Last of Us.
The 14-second clip of Project Spores shows a few familiar recreations of scenes from The Last Of Us Part II, focusing on two actors in the role of Ellie and Dina. Also seen are quick snippets of action involving a Clicker and another moment where Ellie has her arm around another person’s neck.
In the video’s description, the Project Spores crew say, “Whilst we will be releasing a lot of varied content on our socials, we’ll ultimately be releasing a final “fan film” which will be on this very channel.”
Project Spores actually first made itself known when it joined Twitter in May where the crew shared a few stills from their first photoshoot, shot by Carlos Adama.

The TV series is being written by Chernobyl’s Craig Mazin as well as The Last Of Us director Neil Druckmann. Games Of Thrones actors Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey have been cast as Joel and Ellie respectively, although Merle Dandridge, who played Marlene in the game, will reprise her role in the show.
