Gore Verbinski Passes on Pirates for ‘Bioshock’!

Quite possibly one of the best video games I’ve ever played is Bioshock, which is not only about the gameplay, but the astounding visuals. Today it was announced that director Gore Verbinski has officially passed on directing of fourth Pirates of the Caribbean (thank god) to get behind the camera for the live action adaptation of the game for Universal Pictures. The plan is to get the sucker in theaters by 2010! “Bioshock” takes place in an underwater city based on the free market principles of Ayn Rand, but things have gone disastrously wrong. Players control a pilot who crash-lands at a secret entrance to the city, called Rapture, and is drawn into a power struggle during which he discovers that his will is not as free as he’d thought.
