Walton Goggins to Star in Prime Video’s ‘Fallout’ Video Game Adaptation

Prime Video has added Walton Goggins to the cast of its upcoming series adaptation of the dystopian video game franchise To fall.

The new show will be set against the same backdrop as its source material, in a nuclear age set in 2077 America. Details on Goggins’ role have yet to be revealed, but according to an early report from Variety, it’s likely his character will be based on the games’ “ghouls” – humans whose exposure to radiation during the Great War makes them disfigured. , but immune to nuclear fallout.

To fall has been in development since Amazon Studios first licensed the game franchise in 2020. Production on the show is expected to begin towards the end of 2022.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner will serve as executive producers and co-showrunners. Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy will serve as executive producers through Kilter Films as part of their overall deal with Amazon Studios, and Nolan will direct the pilot episode of the series. Kilter Films’ Athena Wickham will also serve as executive producer, alongside Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.

Amazon Studios and Kilter Films will produce To fall in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks.
