Could a Fallout video game movie be in the future of Bethesda Game Studios? Fallout IV was recently released last November and sold 12 million units and generated $750 million dollars in revenue...in just the first 24 hours. Arguable the game of the year, perhaps the next frontier for Fallout to conquer is in the realm of cinema?
Executive producer Todd Howard recently revealed that Bethesda has been meeting with various studios to discuss that very possibility. "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."
Interestingly enough, a script for a Fallout movie actually exists. Back in 1998, Bethesda actually formed its own, internal company to develop its IPs for film. Titled Interplay Films, Brent V. Friedman (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) penned a script which can actually be downloaded and read, HERE.
