Back in 2008 it was announced the the little videogame that could, Bioshock, was getting adapted into a hard R-rated movie. Since then we’ve heard everything from it being in pre-production with Universal studios to being released in 2010. Well, Guess what ? 2010 is over halfway through and all we’ve heard since is that directors have dropped and the film is facing budget issues. Thanks to a recent interview with Washington D.C. radio station 106.7 “The Fan” Bioshock developer Kev Levine gave a little update on the situation(not that Jersey Shore jackass).
“I will say that it is still an active thing, and it is something we are actively talking about and actively working on. The movie business is complicated — I can’t tell you whether it’s going to happen for sure or it’s not going to happen for sure, but it’s something we are actively discussing, quite actively, and actively working on.”
That’s alot of active in such a short statment but it still screams “We have no clue what’s going on! It’s quite a shame though, with former director Gore Verbinski now relegating himself to producer and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) taking the reigns. What ever happened to the film that had such hype floating over it now place into a semi-permanent state of development hell. At least fans still have Bioshock: Infinite to look forward to, unless they stall on that gem too.
