We haven't heard any new developments on the film adaptation of BioShock for over a year now and it appears that could be because it may not be happening at all anymore. Speaking with Industry Gamers, Irrational Games head Ken Levine shared some thoughts that eluded to the movie's production having been stalled for the time being:
"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 to us. "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."

He added, "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," then reiterating: "But you know, we don't have a need to get it made."
While it's sad news that we likely won't be seeing BioShock on the silver screen any time soon, it is heartening to know that the reason for that is because the game's creators want it to remain true to the game -- unlike so many other failed game to film translations.

BioShock Infinite is still expected for a 2012 launch on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
