The Fallout game series first started way back in 1997 and is set decades in the future in an America in the aftermath of nuclear war.
Bethesda says it has been looking for ways to adapt Fallout to a movie or series for the last decade and that Nolan and Joy’s vision for the series is the first that made them think it could be done right.
The show, currently in development, with a series commitment from Amazon Studios, is part of Nolan and Joy’s overall deal with streaming service, which they signed last year for a reported $150 million.
Nolan and Joy said in a statement –
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,”
“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.”
While Nolan and Joy will produce, no other details for Fallout have been announced.
