Fallout’s post-apocalyptic game world becomes a TV series – and apparently with a lot of production effort. After all, Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan (brother of director Christopher Nolan) are responsible for the project. They implemented Westworld for HBO, among others.
The two are currently working together as screenwriters on the science fiction film Reminiscence, which is currently scheduled to appear in April 2021 with Rebecca Ferguson and Hugh Jackman in the leading roles; Lisa Joy directs.
The Fallout TV series should largely be based on the games. According to the press release should that “huge, subversive and morbidly comic universe” appear in it just like that “Harsh Wasteland”.
There are no dates, actors or other details yet. In addition to Joy and Nolan and the game developer Bethesda, the project is also based on Amazon Studios. The Amazon spin-off has already produced series such as The Man in the High Castle and Jack Ryan. The company is currently working on a complex TV series based on The Lord of the Rings.
Fallout is not the only series based on a game. Netflix is currently filming the second season of The Witcher after an interruption due to the corona pandemic, again with Henry Cavill as a witcher. Eight episodes are planned, which will probably be shown at the end of 2021.
Netflix just announced that they are working with Studio Trigger and CD Projekt Red on an anime series in the Cyberpunk 2077 universe. The series is scheduled to start broadcasting in 2022.
Sony Pictures TV has announced that it is working with Square Enix to produce a live action series based on the online role-playing game Final Fantasy 14. So far nothing is known about the large-scale project, however, it may take a few more years before it will be broadcast.
