While the new report confirms the Fallout TV show enters production in 2022, showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy from Kilter Films are at the helm.
Nolan will direct the premiere, which enters production this year, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Captain Marvel, 2018 Tomb Raider movie) and Graham Wagner (Portlandia, Silicon Valley) will join later as showrunners.
After months of dealmaking, the show was officially announced in summer 2020 with Amazon Studios and Kilter Films on board to produce the Fallout TV show, with Bethesda Softworks overseeing the adaptation. Todd Howard and James Altman from Bethesda will be overseeing the production.
“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time,” Nolan and Joy said at the announcement. “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.”
Nolan also directed the pilot to HBO’s Westworld adaptation, which is based on the 1970s film of the same name, a series which he co-created and serves as executive producer on with Joy.
The Fallout TV show will presumably be exclusive to Amazon Prime video.
