Likely thought dead by many, BioShock series creator Ken Levine has confirmed in a radio interview the BioShock movie is still a work in progress.
"I will say that it is still an active thing," Levine tells DC radio station 106.7. "And it is something we are actively talking about and actively working on."
He's still not sure if the project will ever see the light of day -- it seems it's having a very troubled development.
"I can't tell you whether — you know, the movie business is complicated — I can't tell you whether it's going to happen for sure or it's not going to happen for sure," Levin adds. "But it's something we are actively discussing, quite actively, and actively working on."
Originally Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski was to head the film, but he's switched to producing -- probably a better fit, anyway. Verbinski has stated it will need to be rated a "hard R." The new director is Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, the man behind Intact and 28 Weeks Later -- the former received mixed reviews, while the latter performed very well.
If we do end up seeing it, however, we can count on the lead to have more of an identity than the semi-anonymous star we're used to -- something necessary for a film adaptation, Levine says. He also states staying faithful to the work while fitting it to the film mold is a "super, super challenge."
