Back in May, we reported that a Bioshock movie is on hold until, "all the right pieces are in place." Bioshock creator Ken Levine recently spoke about the movie adaptation of his video game, which doesn't seem to be moving forward at all.
Here's what he had to say below.
"We got very close to having it get made - we had a deal in place and a director. But for us there's no burning [desire] to have a movie made just to get it made. For us and for Take-Two, it's really got to be something that will A) give the fans something that they want, and B) for those who don't know Bioshock, really introduce them to something that is consistent with the game, and is it going to be a good representation of the game. There are differences between games and movies, no doubt, but the movie has to draw from the same DNA in terms of the world and the story beats. But you know, we don't have a need to get it made."
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.
