Project history

Interplay Films

Main article: Interplay Films

Interplay Films, a division of Interplay Entertainment, was formed in 1998 and was to develop seven of the company’s most popular video game titles into movies, including Fallout. In 2000, Interplay was said to be partnering with Dark Horse Entertainment on the Fallout movie project. Brent Friedman (Dark Skies, Mortal Kombat II) wrote the script treatment. Eventually, no Interplay property was ever made into a film and the division was disbanded.

In March 2011, the full film treatment was released at The Vault.

Future project

On February 5, 2009, Bethesda Softworks, which had bought the rights to the Fallout franchise from Interplay in 2007, applied for the Fallout trademark for "Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program" (s/n 77663853) and for "motion picture films about a post-nuclear apocalyptic world" (s/n 77663852). On February 17, 2011, Bethesda was e-mailed that the third and final known extension of the "Fallout" television series had been granted. Eight days later the second and final known extension for the movie franchise was also granted and e-mailed to Bethesda.

On January 8, 2013, Bethesda Softworks registered a Fallout trademark for "Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world." again.

In the DVD commentary for the Mutant Chronicles movie, Ron Perlman stated that he was the narrator in an action heavy videogame that he thought was being made into a movie, and where the tagline was "War, War never changes".
