    Well, after a second, more extensive search I can't find any connection between Uwe Boll and Fallout (though you get quite a few RPGCodex results). Furthermore, looking at the various edits of the Wikipedia, it seems there is quite a bit of speculation about which games Uwe Boll is interested in. It would appear that everyone is afraid about what he might choose next, and rumor runs wild. Unless anyone can dig up anything to the contrary, I would say that it is false.

    However, someone who can read German may want to search German sites for such information. That is another venue which I did not pursue which might contain the relevant information.

    Interactive movies are (almost) as old as gaming.

    Dude, don't jog his memory with such a deliberate reference!

    Given the tax loophole and such I wonder if it isn't more appropriate to admire the man: He may just make these movies, based on marginally convertable ideas with a narrow popular appeal, in order to exploit that tax loophole for wealthy friends to profit from.

    Perhaps if it's closed he will move onto another scam? Like, I dunno, MMORPG's based on post-apocalyptic settings in the American Southwest? :look:

    Considering the games he's chose for movies I would bet he would pass Fallout over as being too much of a "thinking" story. Seriously.

    Who knows what a fallout movie could be based off of because you might not be able to be some kinda save the wasteland heroic guy because there was the vault dweller, and the chosen one who destroyed the master, the enclave and countless other things and then there's FO3 which if he does make a movie might come out before and in that game you'll probably like blow up a continent and rid the world entirely of radscorpions unless the movie is about some guy living in the vault and trying to live a normal live in the radiated wastes

    If Uwe Boll made a Fallout movie, he would turn the Ghouls into a race of killer zombies and have a group of generic soldiers fighting against and being killed by them. Or have some clueless Vault Dwellers (say hello to the introduction of the Vault number bikini to go along with the POS thongs) finding an abandoned pre-war house and then being slaughtered by Ghouls.

    Either way, PRAY that this rumor isn't true.

    ...And Joachim, since when was it the Chosen One that destroyed the Master? Also I have no idea what you're trying to say after "the enclave and countless other things". Are you trying to say that's what Fallout 3's plot was? Because it wasn't.

    I think he just forgot to add "respectively".

    I can't help but wonder which "Fallout game" inspired Uwe Troll to pursue the Fallout movie license. I'm willing to bet twenty dollars it was Fallout: Piece of Shit.

    what I meant to say was the vault dwellers and the chosen ones deeds in one, not that the chosen one did all that and by countless other things I mean things done in other cities like fixing geckos plant and clearing out the khans from vault 13, twice. stuff like that.

    Should have been clearer, I understood what you were saying about F2. I meant this:
    If you've read Van Buren's design docs, the story they were planning wasn't anywhere close to this. That's what I was questioning.

    Anyway, back to Mr. Boll and his plans for making a quick buck through a German tax loophole by raping video game franchises.
    Uwe=bad. Fallout=good. Uwe+Fallout=save yourself, gouge out your eyes and plug your ears now. The end (of a once-respected franchise).

    Sorry to grave dig, but I was just referred to a site that discusses the scamming issue. It is an interesting elaboration on the theory.

    More generally on the tax stuff.

    Uwe Boll would make a teeny version of that game.
    All the philosophy would be left out and it might kill the Fallout-license forever.

    I think the perfect guys to make this movie would be:
    Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.
    As a team, of course.
    Tarantino has the wit to capture the lyrical atmosphere and Rodriguez the vision (think of "Sin City") to create the look of the Fallout-universe.

    Plus, both are known to make movies beyond the blandness of mainstream.

    I said it before, but the tax hole he exploited has been closed.

    Much to the despair of all those artists who used it the way it was intended.

    As for the kind of movies that used this tax advantage as it was intended: go watch The Experiment.

    I must say that this prospect doesn't particularly bother me. Two reasons.

    A) I've completely lost faith in Hollywood... or, in Uwe's cae, any of the other entertainment mediums operating on the same paradigm (hopefully this will be changing soon - ref Tucker Max).

    B)If he makes it, it will be so radically different that it won't matter! In fact it will be a good thing in some ways because then there will be atleast 5 years where nobody else touches it! Seriously, think about it: If in "'Fallout' the Movie" the earth is destroyed by aliens and god's chosen one must cross the wasteland, meeting amusing comedic relief characters and buxom rogues along the way, to eventually defeat the "Master" human/alien hybrid with a mechwarrior suit concealed until the last minute, and he must use his atomic superblaster..... does this really affect Fallout?

    If Paramount was going to make it then I would be worried. It would be similar enough to be blasphemy.

    Mortal Kombat Annihilation was an excellent movie. It was so awesome that I wanted to gouge my eyes out with a butterknife,stick them up my ass,and then shit,so when I shit I would shit on my eyes.
    I remember when I rented House of the Dead. I never heard of Uwe Boll,so I didn't know what to expect. When I saw the fight scene where the girl jumps in the air,shoots the shotgun,and it slows down to watch the bullets...I almost vomited. Then I saw the zombie catapult in the air,clearly noticing the springboard and I wanted to die right then and there.
    I thought to myself,"There is no hope for mankind.I should kill myself right now." Moments later while I held the razorblade to my wrist it dawned on me. An epiphany if you will. Uwe Boll deserves to die,not I. But killing him now will not undo all the horrible atrocities that he has commited against mankind. That was when I decided to invent a time machine in order to stop Uwe Boll from ever being born.
    I have watched every time travel movie,researched Einsteins theories on time travel,and I even ran around the world real fast like in "Superman: The Movie" all in hopes of accomplishing this daunting task. But to no avail I have not found out how to travel through time,so at long last I have came to one conclusion. Mankind is so fucked.

    I think we should unleash the Roshambo on Uwe Boll...
    Or would that be too horrible for Rosh?
