Ella Purnell Joins Walton Goggins In Prime Video Series Based On 'Fallout' Games


Outsiders

Recommended Posts

Ella Purnell is set to headline Fallout, Prime Video’s series adaptation of the bestselling game franchise.  Purnell will be the star opposite cast lead, Walton Goggins.

Purnell's character has yet to be revealed, but she is believed to be playing the lead, referred to as Jean, a young woman with a can-do attitude who may be hiding a dangerous secret.

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. The magic of the Fallout world is the harshness of the wasteland set against the previous generation’s utopian ideal of a better world through nuclear energy.

The series comes from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s Kilter Films, Amazon Studios, and Kilter Films in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.  Nolan is set to direct the premiere and executive produce with Joy and Athena Wickham for Kilter Films; Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios’ and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.  Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as showrunners on the series, which is slated to begin production in 2022.

Fallout game has huge and extensive lore that is incredibly interesting, but this series will still need character story to make us invested, something that is often lacking in most video games adaptations. 

There are a TON of stories in the fallout games that the player follows with quests and some in text and such. Its alot of source material they can run with and mix with whatever characters they make. Hopefully its good but I agree, most video game adaptations take too many liberties and often arent as good due to not sticking with what its based on.. ALTHO, with fallout there hasnt really been a giant main story spanning all the games, its often just a specific scenario in a similar environment with new characters and a new plot. A live action fallout is actually one of potentially the best types of video game adaptations. Its so general all they need is to have familiar character types and creatures that are seen throughout the lore and come up with their own story in the wasteland. Usually video game adaptations suck bc they deviate too far from the strict source material. This is so general that it could work perfectly.

Prime Video debuted the official teaser trailer for Fallout during the series' panel at CCXP, Brazil's massive fan and comic book convention in São Paulo.

The teaser delighted fans with a first video glimpse into the Fallout universe, as it revealed more of the series' signature characters, including The Ghoul, as well as its vaults, mysterious Wasteland, and the Brotherhood of Steel. Fallout will premiere on Prime Video exclusively on April 12, 2024, in more than 240 countries and territories around the world.

During the series' panel conversation on CCXP's iconic Thunder Stage, executive producer and director Jonathan Nolan, executive producer and co-showrunner Graham Wagner, and series stars Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, and Walton Goggins lifted the veil on the epic drama series, giving a sneak peek into its action, tongue-in-cheek gore, and twisted, post-apocalyptic setting, before premiering the teaser in-room to more than 3,500 enthusiastic audience members.

In addition to the show panel, thousands of convention attendees were transported into the world of Fallout through Prime Video's immersive show-floor activation, which put fans right into the action and treated them to never-before-seen glimpses into the universe and exclusive photo-ops.

Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there's almost nothing left to have. Two hundred years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind - and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them.

I love Fallout, there's so much story and nuance there, however that's not a guarantee it can work as a show but glad to see Emerson and MacLachlan although besides that trailer does have almost low budget look. It also suck they didn't invite OG Fallout creators, like Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky and others as consultants but you have Todd Howard name one it as if he is creator of Fallout, and yeah he did play big role in reviving franchise but c'mon.

If this movie is half as good as the video game, then this will be an amazing movie. This has to be watched in 3D.

It's a TV show, not a movie...

“Jonah, Lisa, Geneva, and Graham have captivated the world with this ground-breaking, wild ride of a show. The bar was high for lovers of this iconic video game and so far we seem to have exceeded their expectations, while bringing in millions of new fans to the franchise. The cast led by Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, and Kyle MacLachlan have knocked it out of the park!,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. “We’d like to thank Jonah and Lisa and our friends at Bethesda for bringing the show to us as well as Geneva and Graham for coming aboard as showrunners.  We are thrilled to announce season two after only one week out and take viewers even farther into the surreal world of Fallout.”

“Praise be to our insanely brilliant showrunners, Geneva and Graham, to our kick-ass cast, to Todd and James and all the legends at Bethesda, and to Jen, Vernon and the amazing team at Amazon for their incredible support of this show.  We can’t wait to blow up the world all over again,” said Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, Kilter Films.

“Holy #$##. Thank you to Jonah, Kilter, Bethesda and Amazon for having the courage to make a show that gravely tackles all of society's most serious problems these days -- cannibalism, incest, jello cake. More to come!,” said Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner, executive producers, creators, and co-showrunners.

“It’s been one of the most spectacular projects we’ve ever been a part of. Jonah and team did such an incredible job, and we’re overjoyed not just by the reaction to the show, but that we get to work with these amazing people even more,” said Todd Howard, executive producer, Bethesda Game Studios.

 

Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. Two-hundred years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind—and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird, and highly violent universe waiting for them.

Ella Purnell is Lucy, an optimistic Vault-dweller with an all-American can-do spirit. Her peaceful and idealistic nature is tested when she is forced to the surface to rescue her father. Aaron Moten is Maximus, a young soldier who rises to the rank of squire in the militaristic faction called the Brotherhood of Steel. He will do anything to further the Brotherhood’s goals of bringing law and order to the wasteland. Walton Goggins is the Ghoul, a morally ambiguous bounty hunter who holds within him a 200-year history of the post-nuclear world. These disparate parties collide when chasing an artifact from an enigmatic researcher that has the potential to radically change the power dynamic in this world.

The series stars Ella Purnell (Yellowjackets), Aaron Moten (Emancipation), Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks), and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight). Athena Wickham of Kilter Films also executive produces, along with Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.

I've never played any of the games, but absolutely loved the TV show! I binged the whole thing over a few days. I hope it doesn't take forever to make Season 2.
