Director Gore Verbinski has told The LA Times that filming Bioshock in the States is simply too expensive and if the film is to go ahead, countries such as the U.K. and Australia need to be looked at for tax rebate reasons.

“The bottom line is it has to shoot out of the States for budget reasons and my schedule may be prohibitive.” he said.

“Big movies are just not being shot in the States. I’m weighing whether I can physically go the U.K. or Australia or one of those other places with a tax rebate for a year-and-a-half.”

Production on the Bioshock movie was ground to a halt in April due to budget concerns.
