Ella Purnell is set to headline Fallout, Prime Video’s series adaptation of the bestselling game franchise. Purnell will be the star opposite cast lead, Walton Goggins.

Purnell's character has yet to be revealed, but she is believed to be playing the lead, referred to as Jean, a young woman with a can-do attitude who may be hiding a dangerous secret.

The world of Fallout is one where the future envisioned by Americans in the late 1940s explodes upon itself through a nuclear war in 2077. The magic of the Fallout world is the harshness of the wasteland set against the previous generation’s utopian ideal of a better world through nuclear energy.

The series comes from Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s Kilter Films, Amazon Studios, and Kilter Films in association with Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks. Nolan is set to direct the premiere and executive produce with Joy and Athena Wickham for Kilter Films; Todd Howard for Bethesda Game Studios’ and James Altman for Bethesda Softworks. Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Graham Wagner serve as showrunners on the series, which is slated to begin production in 2022.

Fallout game has huge and extensive lore that is incredibly interesting, but this series will still need character story to make us invested, something that is often lacking in most video games adaptations.

There are a TON of stories in the fallout games that the player follows with quests and some in text and such. Its alot of source material they can run with and mix with whatever characters they make. Hopefully its good but I agree, most video game adaptations take too many liberties and often arent as good due to not sticking with what its based on.. ALTHO, with fallout there hasnt really been a giant main story spanning all the games, its often just a specific scenario in a similar environment with new characters and a new plot. A live action fallout is actually one of potentially the best types of video game adaptations. Its so general all they need is to have familiar character types and creatures that are seen throughout the lore and come up with their own story in the wasteland. Usually video game adaptations suck bc they deviate too far from the strict source material. This is so general that it could work perfectly.

I'm already a huge fan of the Fallout games. Walton Goggins cast as the lead? I'm hooked. I enjoy any movie (or at least, his part) he is in.
