The lights are on
The Fallout franchise may still be waiting on a big screen debut, but way back in the series' early days a script for a potential Fallout film was already written. New details about that movie have now surfaced.
Fallout wiki site The Vault has uncovered and posted a full PDF of the second revision of a Fallout movie script from 1998. The script was created as part of the Interplay Films spin-off studio before Fallout 2 had even been released, and it was abandoned when Interplay Films shut down in 2000.
The Fallout film's story -- detailed here or available in full PDF form here -- follows a vault-dwelling 20-something hero as he leads a group looking for a replacement water purifier for Vault 13. It's a familiar but classic tale that could have served as a fun structure to introduce the desolate world of Fallout.
Check out the full story for yourself at the links above. Personally, I could easily see a reasonably good movie set in the Fallout universe being made, though I'm sure Hollywood would figure out some way to screw it up.
I pray to God every night for a Fallout movie. I also pray that whoever makes it doesn't screw it up.
A Fallout movie would be awesome. That is, if Hollywood doesn't screw that up to.
Make it happen!
Hollywood is smarter than we think, they know exactly how to screw something up in movie form.
I would have loved a Fallout movie, but you're right. Hollywood would screw up a simple but great concept
This would be awesome! I wonder if this is where they got FO3's story from
That sounds eerily familiar to the Fallout 1 storyline, oh wait, its the exact same story :)
I have a friend who wants to be a movie director, and I'm sure he'd love to make a video game movie that doesn't suck. He's pretty good at not sucking.
You're right. Holloywood would find a way to screw it up.
it would be awesome to watch a fallout movie but it would have to be good.
Yep, Hollywood was and will screw it.
