Look, I’m not going to lie – when Kilter Films, Bethesda Game Studios, and Amazon announced back in 2020 that a Fallout TV series was in the works, I instantly wrote it off. Certainly it’d be one other online game TV challenge that may stumble via improvement till it’s quietly canceled, just for the world to collectively ask years later, “Hey, what happened to that Fallout show?” That’s what online game films and TV developments have completed to me. On this occasion, although, it seems I’m unsuitable as a result of manufacturing is transferring ahead and the present now has a director.
These conversant in HBO’s Westworld sequence may acknowledge him, too, because it’s the identical one that created and government produced that sequence: Jonathan Nolan, the brother of famed director Christopher Nolan (The Darkish Night time, Inception). First reported by Deadline, Nolan will direct the premiere of the sequence, which can go into manufacturing this yr. Alongside this information, the publication additionally revealed that Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel) and Graham Wagner (Silicon Valley) have been tapped to function showrunners.
Nolan may also government produce this Fallout sequence, which doesn’t but have an official title (though “Fallout” works simply fantastic – please don’t add some pointless subtitle, Amazon), alongside Kilter Movie’s Lisa Pleasure and Athena Wickham. Bethesda’s personal Todd Howard and James Altman may also function government producers.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,” Nolan and Pleasure advised Deadline again in 2020. “Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios.”

Again in August of final yr, Pleasure stated the sequence is “just a gonzo, crazy, funny, adventure and a mindf**k like none you’ve ever seen before.” Right here’s hoping that’s nonetheless the case.
