Fallout Tv Series (Amazon Prime)

So this is in the works. I'm fairly excited (ref: my love of dystopian alternate realities). Not a lot of info out there at the moment but I'm hoping this will be good when it lands sometime in 2023 or 2024. The setting is iconic and it's good to see that it's going to make it to the screen.

For a second I thought you meant it was Set in 2023-2024. I was like "what do They know that We don't?!?"

There were some set pics leaked, as well as a partial power armor frame.  It looks promising.  I'm a huge fan, and apparently it'll be centered around a new vault.  I'm going to remain cautiously optimistic...

The article author thinks it will release in fall 2023. I'm not quite that optimistic. I'm guessing Fall of 2024. As for the time period in the Fallout Universe that it will be set in it's anyone's guess. Mine is somewhere after Fallout76 which is 2102 to 2104 and before Fallout 3 which is 2277.

I think a lot also depends upon what this particular vault's experiment will be, (if there is one).  It'd be interesting if these dwellers were pre-war, but there were also pics of a Super Duper Mart, which looked like it had been abandoned for many years/decades...

That would be a great reveal for those not familiar with the game series. Possibly a let-down for those of us who are. Who knows, maybe even worthy of some genuine

Building the world of Fallout for those not already familiar with it can be tricky - spend too much time and the "now" where the series actually takes place in gets muddied, but spend too little time and people ask questions about why cars look like those of the 50s, yet it's actually set after 2077...

I count two strikes already:  1)  It's a TV show based on a video game (I haven't seen a good game-to-"film" adaptation yet); and 2) it's Amazon Studios.

 

On the plus side, however, one of the developers (Jonathan Nolan) has some writing credits that catch my attention, i.e., "Person of Interest" and two of the Chris Nolan Batman films.  I haven't watched anything involving Lisa Joy, so no expectations there either way.

In all fairness, as iconic as it is, he only did the opening and closing narrations.  It's not out of the realm of possibility that they could simply pay to use the existing clips...

And did them so powerfully, so evocatively, that they're still lauded by everyone who's played any of the games.  His narration is iconic and integral to Fallout.  It's what gives the games their emotive depth, what gives their stories weight.  The wasteland wasn't just a place to stand, a backdrop for your fights, you heard his voice echoing in the back of your mind as you wandered, reminding you how this landscape became the barren, desolate place that it was, tinging the entire experience with a hint of regret and sorrow and giving you a more somber, meaningful experience.

 

None of the Fallout games would've been anything noteworthy or memorable without that.  Without his narration.  He made us feel it.  That's something special and unique to Fallout that shouldn't be sacrificed, or lost, in the transition to film.  If anything, it's even more important to keep it, because story is everything in film.  The most beautiful cinematography in the world doesn't save a piece with a bad story, or no story at all.  Doing this without Ron Perlman... they might as well just hand it to Uwe Boll, or Tommy Wiseau.

I'm going to withhold judgement until I actually see it.

Probably the best idea. Pre-prod is a very flexible time (even Amazon Prime Video's existence within the Bezos Empire is still slightly on a knife edge, with Rings Of Power being evaluated: it may not even happen.) Casting is also unlikely to be anywhere near filled out yet, though Kyle McLachlan being attached* is interesting...

And yes, they need Ron. But he's always working, isn't sniffy about any level of project as long as it's work, and this kind of thing is a day in a nice comfy booth on "Jack Nicholson money". So I've no idea why he wouldn't be attached or would turn it down.

 

Also, sensing a number of my friends from Queens nodding approvingly at Staten being a post-apocalyptic landscape. 😁

 

*"attached": someone may have sneezed this name while someone at another table was talking about the project through a mouthful of chop salad. Seriously, take nothing and no-one as locked until it's in the can.

WAKE UP YA MISCREANTS AND... HEY, GET YOUR OWN DAMN SIGNATURE.

Look out for me being generally cool, stylish and funny (delete as applicable) on Excelsior.

There's a character named Maximus so maybe we'll be seeing Caesar's Legions?

I wonder how much like this it'll be?

I would recommend checking out a movie called Radioactive Dreams from 1985 its a possiblity that was the main insperation for Fallout series.

Here is a trailer from the movie Here.

Both Mad Max and its sequel (The Road Warrior) predate that, and they seem to be more of an inspiration than the movie you mentioned...

I'm only basing it on the trailer, but Radioactive Dreams seems like more of an inspiration to me (would have to watch the actual movie, to be sure).  I've seen the original MM trilogy multiple times, and the newest iteration, and none of them really remind me of Fallout, except possibly in the clothing aesthetic of the Fallout wasteland raiders compared to the raiders in Road Warrior.

 

JMO.

The Plot line 2 young men leave a Fallout Shelter to find their so called Fathers who abandom them to explore a unknown wasteland full of mutants, freaks, and cannibals dressed up in 1940's aesthetic believing themselves to be Privite Eyes it starring John Stockwell, Lisa Bloount, Michael Dudikoff, and George Kennedy. Its a very rare movie that is hard to find on VHS I don't believe they released a DVD for this flim. 

 

If you want to watch this flim its on Youtube.

His Best Move role was In American Ninja.

 

Pretty sure that's the only role of his that actually had any success.  Cannon Films... yay. (Altho they did release Buckaroo Banzai...)

 

Sho Kosuge had more star power after that series than Dudikoff did, and he never showed his face thru any of the Ninja films to my recollection.
