Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are developing a TV series based on the video game franchise Fallout under their Kilter Films banner in partnership with Amazon Studios and Bethesda Softworks.
The TV series would bring “the violence of the desert set against previous generations’ utopian notions of a better world through nuclear energy” to the small screen, while maintaining the game’s “rough tone” and ensuring it was still “sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie fantasy” nuclear,” according to Variety.
Nolan and Joy will serve as executive producers alongside Athena Wickham for Kilter Films, with Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios, and James Atlman for Bethesda Softworks.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time. Every chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours of time with family and friends,” said Nolan and Joy in a joint statement. “So we’re thrilled to partner with Todd Howard and the other brilliant geeks at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and dark universe to life with Amazon Studios.”
Howard added, “Over the past decade, we’ve seen many ways to bring Fallout to the screen. But it’s been clear from the first time I spoke to Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter are the ones doing it right. We’re big fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios. “
A release date for the Fallout TV series has yet to be announced.
