BioShock Movie News: Meetings for BioShock the movie will be happening between pre-E3 and E3.



BioShock the movie release date unknown, but meetings confirmed.

We can't wait to get our hands on BioShock Infinite in two weeks at E3 2011, but Ken Levine isn't waiting that long to tease us with yet another BioShock: BioShock the movie. In between this week's pre-E3 events and June 7's expo start date, a meeting about the 60s-set, Rapture-based film will occur next week, according to the series creator.

"Meetings on that very topic next week" tweeted the Irrational Games creative director and co-founder. This comes in response to a Twitter follower asking him if the film was ever going to happen. Without question, the game-to-movie adaptation has been in the works for several years. Rumors of a script popped up mere months after the first game's August 2007 debut on the Xbox 360 and PC.

However, production on BioShock the movie was put on the back burner for several reasons, from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, Rango) backing out of that role (he is still on as a producer) to major budget issues to studios insisting on a PG-13 rating. Since this is a Mature-rated videogame franchise, only an R rating would make sense if the movie were to stay true to its source. No one wants to see Little Sissies replace Little Sisters.

Now, it seems as if this project has found its way to a Vita-chamber and is back on track. 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is signed on to direct and Levine's confirmation of BioShock movie-related "meetings" next week is a hopeful sign. Considering this morality-based FPS series is fit for the silver screen, we're looking forward to uncovering more details about Rapture. One has to wonder, when it does release, will it get it's own movie-game?
