The creators of Westworld, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, are set to be the series showrunners, under their Kilter Films banner. The series has a commitment penalty clause, which means Fallout would instantly go to series without a pilot once the scripts are approved by Amazon. The pair previously signed an overall deal with Amazon last year, worth US$150 million for five years. While Nolan and Joy have officially exited Warner, they will continue to produce and write the Westworld series for HBO under the new deal. Fallout is Nolan and Joy’s second series in production under Amazon, the first being the series adaptation of William Gibson’s novel, The Peripheral.
Fallout is Bethesda’s most popular franchise, which released its first game in 1997, set in a post-apocalyptic Earth after a global nuclear war left the surface into an irradiated wasteland. The tactical and action RPG has spawned nearly 10 games, and has celebrated more than 20 years in the gaming industry. The latest game under the Fallout banner is Fallout 76, the first in the franchise to have online multiplayer features.
