'BioShock' Movie Hits Snag, On Hold Due to Excessive Budget

by Rainier on April 25, 2009 @ 4:08 a.m. PDT

BioShock is a hybrid first-person shooter that combines elements of sci-fi and role-playing genres. Going beyond run-and-gun corridors, monster-closet AIs, and static worlds, BioShock creates an unpredictable FPS experience.
Gore Verbinski has long expressed his interest in doing the BioShock movie adaptation of 2K's action game. It will begin production in 2010, and John Logan (The Aviator, Star Trek: Nemesis) has written the screenplay, while BioShock creator Ken Levine is consulting. Having recently turned down a 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Verbinski has hit a snag and the BioShock film has been put on hold. Universal Pictures has asked the parties to look for an alternate location, as shooting in Los Angeles will have projected costs of $160 million, although it reaffirmed this will not be another 'Halo' movie fiasco.
