The critical and commercial success of Bioshock meant that it was an almost certain that it would catch the attention of Hollywood.

A film adaptation has been in the works since 2008 with Pirates of the Caribean director, Gore Verbinski, attached. In 2009, Verbinksi stepped down as director due to schedule and budgeting issues. He has remained on the project as a producer and was replaced by 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

However, in an interview with IndieWire, Fresnadillo revealed that he will no longer be involved in bringing Bioshock to the silver screen. “To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that, and developing other stuff,” Fresnadillo said. “Right now it’s on hold. The studio and the video game company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating.”

For now, Bioshock will continue to linger in post production. There hasn’t yet been an announcement of a replacement director.

Are you interested in a Bioshock film? Do you feel it’s unnecessary when there is already a great game out there or do you think it has all the potential to be a great film and introduce a set of new fans to this much loved franchise? Let us know in the comments section below.
