BioShock movie a go, with new director


The future of the proposed BioShock film has been up in the air ever since Universal Studios put the project on hold back in April, citing a growing budget as the primary reason for the postponement. The plan was to rework the script and explore new shooting locations to drive down filming costs, but that strategy has come at a price of its own.

Universal has indeed reworked John Logan’s (Gladiator, Aviator, Sweeny Todd) script and arranged for new shooting locations, but in the process has lost the services of director Gore Verbinski (The Mexican, The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy), who was unable to commit to the overseas shooting schedule. Taking his place will be 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Verbinski will assume the role of producer.
