Gore Verbinski Still Trying To Make BioShock Movie, Promises R Rating

2K Marin Already Developing Post-BioShock 2 Project

Director Gore Verbinski has an eye for style. Verbinski's remake of The Ring and Pirates of the Caribbean are both stylish, good looking films, an important trait for someone looking to adapt BioShock to the big screen. Even though Verbinski is no longer tied to the BioShock movie as a director, he's remained a producer and told IGN he's focused on getting the budget down now.

"We're working [and] trying to make it," said Verbinski. "The problem with BioShock was: R-rated movie, underwater, horror. It's a really expensive R-rated movie. So we're trying to figure out a way working with [new director] Juan Carlos [Fresnadillo] to get the budget down and still keep so it's true to the core audience, you know? The thing is it has to be R, a hard R."

More patience is required, sadly, but Verbinski seems to have the right attitude for this one.

History dictates this won't actually happen, but hey...we can all dream, right?
