In spite of experiencing several delays and knock-backs -- such as a switch in directors -- BioShock creator Ken Levine has reassured fans that they're still focusing on a movie adaptation.
Despite losing its initial director, Levine explained to Edge Magazine that his studio Irrational Games still have an interest in a movie based on the critically acclaimed IP:
"The thing with Gore [Verbinski] didn't work out, but there's no such thing as 'it's finished' when it comes to making a movie out of something."It's always about the stars aligning. We're still focussing on it, but it hasn't consumed us so much."
Understandably, however, Levine stated that the developer is predominately focused on BioShock Infinite, the next hotly-anticipated installment in the series. It's due for a release on consoles and PC on October 16 in North America and three days later internationally.
The last we heard about the BioShock film was during March, which is when then-director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo quit. In the director's seat before him was Gore Verbinski (The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean and Rango). His "really, really scary" vision for the movie was intriguing but it ultimately failed to receive any financial backing from interested parties.
