There should be a bioshock movie, as he was planned years ago, just not in the cinema.
Bioshock celebrates its 15th birthday this year. In August 2007, the ego shooter came from developer 2k Boston (before and from 2009 irrational games) for the PC and the Xbox 360 on the market. One year later, porting followed the PlayStation 3 and today the title is also playable on PS4 and Xbox One (thus PS5 and Xbox Series X / S) and the Nintendo Switch. In 2010, a direct sequel followed and 2013 seemed Bioshock Infinite. All three parts are considered great shooter hits, a fourth bioshock is in work at the Studio Cloud Chamber. And actually a movie should come. The should be produced by universal and Gore Verbinski ("Curse of the Caribbean") was considered a director. Ultimately, however, the project was in the Sande.
Now quite surprisingly Netflix has announced, in collaboration with Take-Two or its daughter 2K Games to put a film adaptation on the legs. As the video-on-demand giant posted on Twitter's artwork of the first bioshock, it can be assumed that its underwater world named Rapture will serve as setting and not the cloudstadt Columbia from Bioshock Infinite or a whole new scenario, as it is allegedly in the next part of the gaming is the case.

Further information about the project is not available. Netflix has not revealed what to reveal a potential release date of the film nor the responsible (producer, scriptwriter, director). Obviously, therefore, only the relevant contracts are signed and the search for people who are to transfer the essence of Bioshock to a film, begins only. Whether you may call Gore Verbinski again? However, the last with "Lone Ranger" and "A Cure for Wellness" has been delivered anything but cash registers.
