Gore Verbinski was at one time slated to direct, but with the deal falling through, the BioShock film adaptation is still under water. That doesn't mean the project has been canned though, and specifically, Irrational's Ken Levine is "still focusing" on making it a reality.
"The thing with Gore [Verbinski] didn't work out," Levine told Edge
). "But there's no such thing as 'it's finished' when it comes to making a movie out of something. It's always about the stars aligning. We're still focussing on it, but it hasn't consumed us so much."
Obviously that team currently has their hands full finishing off the highly anticipated BioShock Infinite
, but it's nice to know an enticing film project like this hasn't sunk to the depths yet.
Thoughts on who'd helm a project like this properly?
