It’s official, the long delayed film adaptation of the FPS shooter Bioshockis dead and buried. Having been stuck in development hell with little to no word of it for some years now this should be of no surprise, but what is interesting is that it was personally cancelled by Irrational Games’ Ken Levine.
Off to a promising start in 2008,Bioshock initially looked like it might have been a film adaptation of a video game which might have broken the curse for each and every one to flop. Along with being helmed by Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski, the film was set to preserve the adult themes and dark material which had made the video game such a standout title and immersive world. Unfortunately little to no news seemed to follows this and what we did get was rarely good. The last major report being that Verbinski had been replaced on the project by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.
