Amazon’s “Fallout” Series
The world of Fallout is one where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. In Fallout, the harshness of the wasteland is set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It is serious in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies.
Production for the series is set to begin in New York starting in June under the working title of Hondo. A reference to the 1983 Reggae song “Fallout” by the band Hondo. Little is known about the specific plot of the upcoming Prime Video series, but we do have a good idea of who will be involved in the production, to include three studios show in the teaser trailer below: Kilter Films, Amazon Studios, and of course, Bethesda Game Studios.
“Fallout” Cast and Crew
To date, only two cast members have been announced for Fallout. The first is up and coming actress Ella Purnell. She is known for her role as Kate Ward on Army of the Dead (2021). Walton Goggins, on the other hand, is more of a known quantity. His notable roles include Sonny Burch on Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), Maze Runner: The Death Cure (2018) and Tomb Raider (2018) in which he and Geneva Robertson-Dworet both previously worked on.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet brings her experience as a writer from Captain Marvel (2019) to bear as the production’s Showrunner. The Showrunner is responsible for making sure a series maintains a consistent “voice” and tone. That’s something she should have a lot of experience with given the kind of meticulous attention one has to pay to continuity when working on an MCU film.
In the spirit of continuity between the series and the video games, Bethesda is providing their own Todd Howard who was the director for several games in the series including Fallout 3 and 4.
Husband and wife team Lisa Joy (Producer) and Jonathan Nolan (Director) are teaming up as writers for the show. This isn’t the first time they’re working together though. They both run Kilter Films, one of the production companies involved in creating the live-action Fallout series. Lisa Joy is best known as the co-creator, writer, director, and executive producer of the HBO science-fiction drama series Westworld. Additional crew members include:
PRODUCER: Lisa Joy – Athena Wickham – Todd Howard – James Altman
SHOWRUNNER: Geneva Robertson-Dworet – Graham Wagner
DIRECTOR: Jonathan Nolan
LP: James W. Skotchdopole
PM: Karen Ramirez – Andrew Saxe
