Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy Developing ‘Fallout’ series for Amazon

Interesting choice for them. Kinda surprised it’s taken Hollywood this long to grab up this franchise. It’s the perfect series to become the American version of Mad Max.

    Yeesh...after the last couple seasons of Westworld, I don't know. I will give it a whirl. But Fallout is a series about you creating your own story. I am wondering what this would look like.

    I wonder what the tone of this will be. If it takes itself Westworld level serious this is going to be a drag of a show. I'm struggling to imagine a show that captures what works about Fallout. The goofy nonsense and satire is key to the whole vibe of the games but the stories involve a lot of despair and death, I would have thought more Paul Verhoeven or Taika Waititi than the Westworld people.

    I was thinking the same thing. The games have a very specific sense of humor. It can be dark one moment, but also goofy in the next. That has to be a tough thing to pull off.

    Sounds like a job for Whedon?

    I'd trust him over Nolan and Joy and generally like his stuff.

    Ew. Aside from being a thundercunt of a human being, is there a bigger hack around not named Weiss and Benioff?

    I've known he's a shitty person for a decade, but a hack?

    What’s worse? A shitty person or a hack? 

    Don’t see much difference..
