Series, series, and more series. The last few weeks have been full of announcements about series based on video games, and the latest one to join the trend is a saga that will surely delight many of you. We’re talking about Fallout, the post-apocalyptic universe owned by Bethesda, which will be brought to the big screen by Kilter Films, the production company behind Westworld – along with Bad Robot Films – one of the biggest HBO hits since Game of Thrones. As such, Amazon Studios has taken over the television rights for Fallout to create a television series based on their universe and as part of their video platform.
The Fallout series will be led by Westworld creators Lisa Joy and Jonah Nolan, who will lead the project as Executive Producers. According to THR, the project will also feature some Bethesda names like James Altman and Todd Howard as executive producers. There is still no writer assigned to the script of this project, which is in the early stages of production but, according to the media, has already signed a commitment to Amazon.
This is not the only major project within Amazon, who have been working on the Lord of the Rings series for some time. Nor is it the only video game series announced these days: in a few weeks a series of Disco Elysium has been announced, an anime of The World Ends With You, and another anime, this time of Cyberpunk 2077 with Akira Yamaoka and the director of Gurren Lagann.
