Amazon’s Fallout series has finally found its lead. According to Deadline, the live-action adaptation of the beloved franchise has tapped Walton Goggins to star.
Set in a post-apocalyptic future that’s a mix of 1940s Americana and a radioactive landscape, the first game in the series was released in 1997. The games follow protagonists who have survived in fallout shelters called vaults as they venture into a world ravaged by a global nuclear war in 2077.
Goggins’ character is being kept under wraps, but it seems he will be playing a ghoul. In Fallout, ghouls are humans who were mutated as a result of prolonged exposure to radiation. The plot of the series is also being kept under wraps as it is yet to be revealed if the show will adapt a specific game from the franchise or if it will follow an original story.
Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner are set to serve as showrunners. Johnathan Nolan will direct the show’s pilot and executive produce alongside Athena Wickham for Kilter Films, Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios’ and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks.
Goggins previously starred in Justified and The Shield. Currently, he appears in HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones. He is also set to star in the upcoming film Dreamin’ Wild.
