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 (via Videogamer). "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?

Tim Burton with Johnny Depp playing a little sister. BAM!

I reckon someone like J J Abrams would do an awesome job. Or Ridley Scott could capture the atmosphere f*****g perfectly, but that might be aiming a little high.

But i do agree with the tim burton part. For all we know Depp could play Jack :D

It sounds almost too on-the-nose, but I reckon Cameron would do a great job. If it was co-written by Levine and someone like David Goyer or something, he'd smash it. He has heaps of experience filming underwater, and is absolutely obsessed with the depths, so I think he'd do a great job.

Knowing him, he'd actually build Rapture just for authenticity.

that's a good point. trick cameron into making awesome movies again by mentioning there'll be submarines and undersea cities. he won't be able to resist!
