The Fallout: Warner Bros. Acquires Worldwide Rights For Drama

Major media outlets are reporting that Warner Bros. have acquired the worldwide rights for Megan Park’s high school drama film The Fallout.

Making The Fallout was a journey I never expected to take and one that has changed me forever. If by seeing this film just one teen feels less alone, less afraid, or somehow understood, that will make the journey worth every step.

We shot the film during the height of Covid and despite all the stoppages and setbacks, we knew we had to tell this story now. HBO Max is the perfect home for this film, and we are pleased to be working with the whole team at Warner Bros. to bring the film to audiences around the world.
