Yep, it’s definitely official: a Bioshock movie is in the works. According to the press release, some big names are involved.

Not that any casting has been done yet. And the script writer is “in talks” for doing the job. Otherwise, though, if everything holds up (and one never knows), in a couple of years, we could see this on the big screen.

Of course, we know that most movies based on games have turned out to be horrible. In this case, however, Bioshock does have a story to it, which is a big plus.

A story a little more involved than just “action hero does fancy maneuvers and blows up a lot of stuff”. So there’s definitely material to work with. But with Hollywood, one never knows. Itwill be interesting to see what the final product turns out to be. I wonder if the movie will cost more to make than the game did?
