Film blog Indiewire (via: Gamasutra) is reporting that in an unrelated interview, Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo confirmed that he is no longer attached to the BioShock movie -- first announced in 2008.
"To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that, and developing other stuff," he said. "Right now it's on hold. The studio and the videogame company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating."
The 28 Weeks later director was already the second choice for the job, taking over back in 2009 from Gore Verbinski.

Back in November 2011, Irrational Game's head Ken Levine was quoted as saying they "don't have a need to get it made", stressing that it would have to be "a good representation of the game". That being the case, and given the troubles it seems to have had with budget and R-rating logistics, it's probably for the best that the whole thing seems to be shelved for now.

Fortunately, we'll be getting a new taste of BioShock in videogame form with BioShock: Infinite due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 18th 2012.

Anything less than a R rating would be a disservice to the brutal dystopian world of Rapture. I love the first Bioshock and if it's not going to be represented on film in the proper tone then I don't want to see it ever come to the big screen.
