Xavier Gens signs on to The Fallout

Xavier Gens, director of the disappointing video game adaptation Hitman, has been signed to direct a “futuristic thriller” The Fallout for Content Film. The film takes place in “a post-apocalyptic world set around a New York apartment building-turned-shelter.”

This does not appear to be an adaptation of the video game of almost the same name — despite the fact that Bethesda Softworks secured the name Fallout earlier this year for “entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program” and for “motion picture films about a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.”  Title change imminent, or did Variety bury the lead? Most likely the former.

The Fallout was written by Karl Mueller and Eron Sheean.

    Wow. A post-apocalyptic world with an apartment-turned-shelter? My, what an original concept…

    Damn. I'm too sarcastic and jaded for my own good.

    Too much interest in the whole post-apocalyptic world this year… people need new ideas!
