The film adaptation of the critically-acclaimed game will be produced by Universal Pictures, directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), and written by John Logan (Gladiator), confirmed 2K Games on Friday.
Bioshock is GREAT and all but I dont see how that story can be made into a good movie.
Well at least the people working on it are credible. Hopefully 2K keep a close eye on proceedings and have adequate input and I think this should turn out better than most.
Ever read "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea"....this could easily be a movie, it's like Narnia meet Twilight Zone.. I think Spielberg or Tim Burton's Design can pull it off..
Bioshock must be going to the PS3. It will have a much larger appeal, and make Bioshcok more popular.
....be going to the PS3?!Could you please elaborate a bit on that? Bioshock is exclusive to PC and 360. The sequel to Bioshock may come to PS3 but no one knows as of yet, just rumours until confirmed by the developers.
When the movie gets released you know they'll have to release it on BlueRay as well as DVD, so ~ YES ... PS3 will finally get Bioshock!!! hahaha
Guys, cut the fanboy sh!t out. I hope PS3 gamers get to play this fantastic game, everyone should.
i dont think the game story line would make a great movie same as you. but the concept of Rhapsody and its decline, and a stranger entering the city via an accident. could make a great movie. it would have to be done properly.
Rhapsody? haha its Rapture. Rhapsody is some music download service.
Rapture Rhapsody, potato tomato!!! my mistake, been a while since i played the game.
HAHA its cool.
Am I the only one who thinks this is the best possible outcome for an adaptation?
I agree with yea permutated...with gore on the ticket it has the potential to be a great movie. I hope they can bring the ambiance and environment of Rapture to the big screen.
Gore has a pretty good track record or aural/visual presentation, look at the Ring for instance. I'm sure that with the Gladiator writer pumping something out, it probably can't fail. However, if they don't choose Mike Patton to play Andrew Ryan I'll be very, very upset. The man was born to play the role.
Lets hope they make a decent effort with this. More likely screw it up though, like casting colm meaney as ryan etc
Gore Verbinski is an excellent director. He was able to give The Ring an American look while keeping the feel of the Japanese version. I think he will do just fine with Bioshock.
AngryHippo, its because more people will know about it, if its also on the PS3.
I am really getting sick of Video Game movies being announced... To this day i have yet to see one that is even mildly entertaining
I hope it's good.
For a video game movie, this is about the first time that respected and capable movie talent has been involved. Plus, Bioshock has an excellent story and setting that will make an excellent film.
I really liked the Pirates of Caribbean franchise but come on, BioShock deserves a more artistic director. My personal pick would be Alex Proyas (Dark City, I Robot).
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm... The man has the vision! All of his movies look fantastic (yes even Mouse Hunt is visually pleasing.)
I know. I LOVE The Weather Man (A truly underrated classic) and love the POTC trilogy but still, I would have prefered a different director for BioShock.
I'd rather have a director that can reach a wider audience.
You've got a point but then, to really reach the general audiences, they'll need a PG-13 rating and that would kill BioShock.
Why do they need to make movies of games when the games themselves are like interactive movies? Counterproductive if you ask me. Try taking the movie element in the game further instead.
thats exactly what i was thinking its like them wanting to make a Uncharted film or a Gears film, they basically are films anyway with the high production cut-scenes and voice acting
Games do better than movies do now, movies need games, games don't need movies. They just need to expand the movie aspect in games, or release a movie along side of the game, in the same package.
All I needed to see or not see rather was "Directed by Uwe Boll" Gore Verbinski?? this should be good. In fact had it read "Directed by an armadillo" I would of still been relieved.
we all know game movies r lame
The only movie based on games I can think of that were any good at all were, Silent Hill, Mortal Kombat (first one) Hitman, and Res Evil (first one) everyting else sucked. Look at Doom, the only good thing in that movie was the first person sceen.
Completely agreed though story wise I hated the first Mortal Kombat movie because it was pretty unfaithful to the original game's story (Sure, so were Hitman and RE movies but MK is what I'm crazy about). Still, those are exactly my choices for best game movies.
this is going to be a mind blowing movie can't wait.
