Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are developing a TV series based on the Fallout video game franchise under their Kilter Films banner in collaboration with Amazon Studios and Bethesda Softworks, the latter company announced.
Nolan and Joy will act 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. Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends,” said Nolan and Joy in a joint statement. “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.”
Howard added, “Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen. But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right. We’re enormous fans of their work and couldn’t be more excited to work with them and Amazon Studios.”
A release date for the TV series was not announced.
