BioShock 2 Single-Player DLC Surfaces Next Month

Yesterday we found out why Gore Verbinski is no longer working on the BioShock movie adaptation. Basically, he couldn't get enough backing (money) for the movie he wanted to make. "We just didn't have any takers on an R-rated movie with that price-tag," he said.

Verbinski remains convinced the BioShock film will never get made unless the movie was made to meet a PG-13 rating. The Gore Verbinski version of BioShock could have a been a dark, graphic, and authentic video game based movie. The reason this movie won't be made is because the studios are afraid to put money behind something that won't appeal to the lowest common denominator. Is this the reason video game based movies are destined to fail, because movie execs don't have faith in making  video game movies authentic?
