Back in April the gut-wrenching news hit the wire that Gore Verbinski’s Bioshock – the adaptation of the kickass video game – has hit some troubled waters as the budget was way out of control. Universal promised to get things on track and swore we wouldn’t have another Halo on our hands. Late last night “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller updated his Twitter page with this shocking tweet, “Prison Break may be ending, but I’ve got things in the works. Hint…one word: Bioshock.” Is the city of Rapture having a grand re-opening? Is there enough Eve to get this project rolling? Let’s hope this rumor turns into something more tangible.
“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.
