Having brought Westworld to our screens with HBO, you could forgive Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy for gearing back to a small-scale drama and just one location in the first project under their deal with Amazon Studios. Nope! The duo is developing a TV adaptation of the best-selling Fallout game franchise. Creators Bethesda Game Studios and Bethesda Softworks are on to co-produce with the couple's Kilter Films, and the aim is to bring the game's feel to the series. 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. There, the harshness of the wasteland is set against the previous generation’s utopian idea of a better world through nuclear energy. It is serious in tone, yet sprinkled with moments of ironic humor and B-movie-nuclear-fantasies. There has been chatter about an adaptation for years, but it appears it needed Nolan and Joy to finally push it forward.

"Halloween." The Michael Myers face mask in Halloween is just a Captain Kirk/William Shatner face mask. They spray-painted the face white, teased out the hair, and reshaped the eye holes.

"Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time," Joy and Nolan say in a statement. "Each chapter of this insanely imaginative story has cost us countless hours we could have spent with family and friends. So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios." We still don't know when this will actually happen, as the pair still has Westworld Season 4 to consider and are in pre-production on an adaptation of William Gibson's The Peripheral.

"Casino Royale." Daniel Craig lost the two front teeth while filming a fight scene in Prague (the first action scene to be shot), and his dentist had to fly from London to replace them.
