‘Bioshock’ Movie Still in the Works

A Bioshock film adaptation is still in the works A Kotaku reader discovered a radio interview with Bioshock video game designer Ken Levine, where he said that a Bioshock movie is still moving forward. Here's an excerpt from the site's article:

"I will say that it is still an active thing," Levine tells DC radio station 106.7. "And it is something we are actively talking about and actively working on." That doesn't mean filming of the project is 100 percent certain. "The movie business is complicated - I can't tell you whether it's going to happen for sure or it's not going to happen for sure," Levine adds. "But it's something we are actively discussing, quite actively, and actively working on."

We reported just over a year ago that 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had taken over the reins from Gore Verbinski, although Gore Verbinski will still produce the movie (if it happens). Ken Levine also talked about making the project with a solid lead character instead of the game version, where you only see a hand with a gun:

"You can't really do that in a movie," Levine says. "That's your guy, that's the guy you are following through." The trick is to stay true to the game and also round out the character "so he's not literally a hand with a gun" and "so he's actually a person who is going through some sort of progression through his life."

We'll be sure to keep you posted with any further updates on Bioshock as soon as we have more information.

Bioshock is in development .

          I just started playing Bioshock 2 recently and i am just as impressed as the first game. Its moody and atmospheric and the story is done quite well. I cant wait to see how this all turns out. Crosses fingers.

                          This movie just has to happen, but please not with Wentworth Miller in any role. Like Insert said, the backstory to this game is amazing and could be a truly great movie.

                            Wentworth Miller was rumored, nothing more. MW does that sometimes.

                              Cant wait to see Wentworth Miller in this role. I know he will do a phenomenal job. Let's hope he is still on board if/when it starts filming.

                                Cuaron would be the best choice for this IMO. I'm still waiting on some official news about Bioshock, Gears of War, WarCraft, StarCraft or Diablo movies will be made... I think WarCraft will be a nice universe something like LOTR but It might cost too much... I mean that's the same thing with Bioshock... if they want to keep it close to the game.. it might cost too much...

                                  I loved 28 Weeks Later, I have a feeling this director will work just fine.

                                    I've never seen 28 Weeks Later, but I think a more experienced director should be taking this on. Also, until proven otherwise, I think the only way this film can work if it's a prequel. There is SO MUCH backstory to the game. It would make for such a great movie in the right hands.
