Amazon's Fallout TV show gets showrunners, Johnathan Nolan on board to direct first episode
We've known about Amazon's intent to adapt Bethesda's Fallout franchise into a TV series for about two years now, but now we're getting some new information about the project. Previously teased to feature staff from HBO's Westworld, the showrunners for "Fallout" will be Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner--the former having previously co-written the screenplay of 2019's "Captain Marvel", and having been hired to rewrite the story of 2018's "Tomb Raider" film, while the latter has been credited for writing and producing episodes of "Portlandia", "Silicon Valley", and "The Office". Johnathan Nolan will also be directing at least one episode of the series, with his history involving "Person of Interest", "Westworld", and also working alongside his brother, Christopher Nolan, on movies such as "The Dark Knight" and "Interstellar". He'll be joined by his fellow Westworld co-creator and wife, Lisa Joy, who will be involved as a producer.
