Bethesda trademarks Fallout movie and TV name

If there is any game series that would work as a movie it is Fallout. It’s practically already been done thanks to Mad Max and post apocalyptic Sci-Fi is all the rage these days. Bethesda obviously knows this and they also obviously like making lots of money. Thus they have trademarked Fallout in both movies and television.

The patents were spotted on the US Patent and Trademark Office’s website and stated that Bethesda had filed one for “entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program” and another for “motion picture films about a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.” So if you were writing the ultimate Fallout screenplay, you best get in touch with the folks at Bethesda.

It’s quite possibly that nothing will ever come of this and that Bethesda is just covering their asses in case they do want to make a movie or TV show at some point. I’m hoping they do jump on it though, but I’m not sure if a movie or a TV would be better. Thoughts?
