A Take Two press release now confirms the earlier Variety rumour that Gore Verbinski will direct the Bioshock movie.

“BioShock, a wholly owned and internally developed title for Xbox 360 and Games for Windows shipped over 2.2 million units since its debut in late August,” it reads. “2K Games will be bringing this popular title to the PlayStation 3 this fall, and Universal Pictures is developing a feature film based on BioShock to be directed by Gore Verbinski, director of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.”

So there you go, you can all rest easy now.

    I really, really hope that this is how Rapture was built. I’d love to see that done.

    yeah, seeing the early, hedonistic days of rapture and how the plasmids screwed with everyone’s minds would be great. Final scene can be the plane crash at the beginning of the game.

    I was hoping the next game could be that..

    I reckon a film could handle that better than a game though.

    The game didn’t leave much chance for a sequel though, so they have to go backwards.
