‘Bioshock’ Video Game Adaptation May Be Back in Development

‘Bioshock’ Video Game Adaptation May Be Back in Development

Last March, Bioshock video game creator Ken Levine revealed that the movie adaptation of the popular game was dead, due to the box office failure of Watchmen. However, the adaptation may be back on track, with a report from Kotaku revealing that Sony Pictures has registered several web domains, including Bioshock-Movie.com, Bioshock-Movie.net and Bio-Shock.net which could hint that the movie is back on track.

The project was indefinitely delayed back in 2011, when Gore Verbinski was attached to direct, just weeks before production was scheduled to begin after the budget ballooned to over $160 million. Universal Pictures controlled the property at that time, bringing in Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to replace Gore Verbinski before he bowed out as well. Now it seems that Sony Pictures has been brought on, but there is no confirmation of the movie actually happening, aside from the web domain registrations.

Back in August 2009, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo signed on to direct Bioshock, although it doesn't seem he's attached at this point. Ken Levine is currently working on the latest installment in the Bioshock video game franchise, Bioshock Infinite, which will be released next year.
