BioShock movie still a possibility


After Gore Verbinski stepped down as director of the BioShock movie back in 2009, it seemed like the status of the project was in jeopardy. But according to Irrational Games’ Ken Levine in a recent interview, the 2007 game may still be getting a film adaptation.

When asked about his thoughts on turning video games into films, Levine explained how they are two very separate entertainment mediums.

"I think we’re in the space now of building properties that are appealing to people, and there’s a version of BioShock that makes a great game and there’s probably a version of BioShock that makes a great movie," he said. "I think for us as a company, we don’t have any need to get a movie made."

Levine went on to say that a BioShock film is still a possibility though.

"It’s a moving puzzle, but I’m going to be continually talking to people about it," he said. "It’s definitely something that’s still in the conversation."

Irrational Games is currently working on BioShock Infinite, which is set to come out next year. But Levine isn’t worried about a film adaptation of that game yet, saying, "…right now I’m really just focused on BioShock Infinite as a game."

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
