Early Discussions For Fallout Movie Underway

2016’s turning out to be quite the year for video game movies. We’ve heard talk of Sly Cooper and Thief, and received a release date for Warcraft, the film inspired by Blizzard’s popular MMO. Nathan Drake’s claimed to be swinging his way into cinemas next year, and with Ratchet and Clank grappling the silver screen is just over a month’s time, fans might need to reserve some much-needed diary space.

Possibly the newest addition to the film roll follows executive producer Todd Howard’s recent announcement that Bethesda has been meeting with different movie studios (via. NerdReactor).

“We’ve had a couple of in-roads, particularly with Fallout, which is a bit stickier than Elder Scrolls, but everybody’s kind of asked and I’ve taken a number of meetings over the years and nothing quite clicked….I would say we have a pretty high bar as far as what we would want it to be if it ever happened and nothing’s quite clicked.”

It seems clear that Howard likes the idea of Fallout movie, but according to Games Industry Biz, the director is concerned that a film adaptation could diminish the world the series has created.

“I would say we have a pretty high bar as far as what we would want it to be if it ever happened and nothing’s quite clicked.” he continued, “Even little things like, ‘What does the vault suit look like?’ – every little thing we obsess over so the game is the thing where it really exists,”

Whilst the Wasteland isn’t likely to be gracing the big screen quite yet, it’s certainly not been ruled out by Bethesda. Next week, the Bethesda exec will earn the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the 16th annual Game Developers Conference, placing the 44 year old developer alongside Peter Molyneux, Shigeru Miyamoto, Will Wright and Hideo Kojima, amongst other industry greats (via. PC Gamer). The conference will take place on March 16 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

Charlie is a platforming romantic from England, that still speaks in a fashion that died with the Elizabethan era. Having been gaming since the days of Crash Bandicoot, he champions the Playstation, and is only a little bit embarassed that Super Mario Land keeps spelling his defeat.
