Wow. This could turn out to be great news. According to a Variety
article, Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean
director) has been snagged to direct the movie adaptation of Bioshock
. Even better, John Logan, the screenwriter on The Last Samurai
, The Aviator
and more, is going to be doing the screenplay. AND, the Take Two Chairman, Strauss Zelnick, has supposedly structured the deal in such a way that it actually happens
, unlike other notable
video games movies that have attempted to run the Hollywood gauntlet. With such a setup as this, we could be looking at the beginnings of the best video game movie ever made. Hmm ... we wonder what Uwe Boll thinks of this?
