The MTV Multiplayer blog posted up a comment from Bethesda’s Pete Hines that shows that they are most definitely not against the idea of a movie adaptation, as long as the right person is on the job.
In his comment he plays with the idea of having someone like Quentin Tarantino take on the project.
They report on the following comment:
â€œYou know, if we fâ€” this game up, nobody’s gonna want to touch us with a ten foot pole. [Our attitude is] we’re a game company, let’s make the best game we can make and all that other stuff can sort its self out once we’re doing our job. Our job is not to try and make a thing that would make a great movie, we have to make a great game. If somebody says â€˜we wanna do this, this is the guy who’s gonna direct it,’ then yeah! [laughs] If Quentin Tarantino wants to do â€˜Fallout 3,’ yes, we will hear that proposal! [laughs harder] If Ridley Scott wants to do â€˜Fallout 3,’ we will have that lunch!â€
– â€œFallout 3â€³ product manager Pete Hines on whether Bethesda Softworks would be open to the idea of a movie based on their new game.
What do you guys think? Does a Fallout movie sound like a plan? Heck, if Tarantino does jump at this it would most definitely peak my interest.
