Vault overseer Ausir brings you a treatment of the aborted Fallout movie.

A full movie script was never written, but writer Brent Friedman managed to find an early 15-page film treatment containing a full summary of the story on an old floppy, and was kind enough to send it to me. You can read the whole thing in this wiki article or download the PDF here. Here's a short excerpt:

"Hero at prestigious job -- or so he’s told -- as Assistant Vault Supervisor, working on Supply Inventory. He inspects the G.E.C.K. -- The Garden of Eden Creation Kit.

Our Hero can’t wait. Then he discovers some anomaly in the vault’s water supply. Makes presentation to Vault Supervisor (his father), who is pleased at how sharp our Hero is... but also knows how bored he is. Father’s already seen video tape of the tram incident – this is not the first time Hero has disturbed the peace. Establish internal strife between those who believe salvation/damnation is above. It’s become a generational thing, like the 60’s. Hero points out that all his generation’s complaints with pre-fab Vault life are irrelevant without water…"
