Gore Verbinski to direct live-action Bioshock for Universal Pictures

leave a comment »

Announced recently, Universal Pictures have gone on record to say that Gore Verbinski (Pirates Of The Carribean trilogy, The Ring US Remake) is onboard to direct a hollywood adaptation of one of last years best games, Bioshock.

Set in an underwater 1950’s Utopia, where genetic research and technology run rampant without any moral guidance, the game places you in the shoes of an airplane crash victim who mysteriously finds his way to the underground city, Rapture, and must brave the horrors within to discover things about him that he never thought possible.

I have to say i’m quite behind this. Verbinski has proven he can give us the scares and the creeping fear with his remake of The Ring, so I am quite certain he will nail the atmosphere at the very least.

Colour me interested.
