Walton Goggins joins the Fallout TV show

The TV show based on the Fallout video games is currently in development over at Amazon Studios with Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy to develop a TV adaptation.

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.

Deadline had the news that Walton Goggins (Justified, The Righteous Gemstones) has been cast in the lead role. Details about Goggins’ character are not revealed but it is thought that he will be playing a Ghoul. In Fallout, ghouls are mutated humans who experienced prolonged radiation exposure amid the Great War. I was not expecting a Ghoul to be the lead character, but it’s a different way to go from the usual Vault Dweller in the video games.

I am curious about this TV show. I love the various games set in the Fallout Universe and there are many different stories to tell so there is lots of potential for this one.

Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, who created the Westworld TV show said, “‘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. 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.”

Todd Howard, the video game designer and director behind the Elder Scrolls series and the last three Fallout titles, will be an Executive Producer on the Fallout TV series for Bethesda Game Studios. He had this to say about the project. “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.”

“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” said Albert Cheng, COO and Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We’re thrilled to join with Bethesda to bring Fallout to television.”

Fallout, the TV series, is from Amazon Studios and Kilter Films in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks, with executive producers  Nolan, Joy and Athena Wickham for Kilter Films; Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios’ and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.
