As you may recall, Gore Verbinski had been attached to bring the BioShock video game to the big screen back in 2008, just one year after the game was released. Verbinski’s plan was to make a rated “R” adaptation of the game, but at the time, Universal wasn’t too keen on spending so much money on an “R”-rated movie. This according to Verbinski back in 2017.

Nowadays, of course, rated “R” movies have been having huge success at the box office, so maybe now is the time to finally get that BioShock movie off the ground? As it turns out, it’s a passion project for Greg Russo, the writer of the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie.

“I would love to figure out a way to do BioShock and I’ve tried,” Russo told ComicBook.com.

He continued, “I’ve been like elbowing everybody I can possibly find, because I think I have a really awesome way to do it that would be really fun. And bring the horror of it to the forefront and hopefully keep the budget at a manageable price. But yeah, that’s one that I’d absolutely adore, that be a lot of fun to work on.”
