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.
