Raise your hand if your a fan of the “BioShock” video games. Me too, only I wish the wrench wasn’t removed from the sequel.
Bringing the newbies up to speed, Universal has been developing a film adaptation for quite some time now, had huge names attached (like Gore Verbinski), and eventually crumbled as the budget ballooned out of control.
In an interview with Industry Gamers creator and Irrational Games head Ken Levine declared that he feels there’s no need for a feature film based on the dystopian horror game.
“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,” Levine stressed. “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.”
Sounds like this guy is dead in the (deep) water.
