As the article says, Universal Studios has announced plans to bring hit Xbox 360 shooter BioShock to the big screen. Now while this is interesting enough it’s the team behind it that is looking to be the most promising aspect of the prospect.
The film will be directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) and have it’s screenplay written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator and Sweeney Todd). But there’s more, Verbinski has already been consulting with Ken Levine, and although it’s not clear if he’ll have an official role in the film’s production, it’s still great to see the approach they’re taking with this.
So, is this finally a game based movie that we can be excited about? Any opinions on possible castings?
