Gore Verbinski May Abandon "Bioshock" Film

Posted: June 2nd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Gore Verbinski May Abandon "Bioshock" FilmSubmit Comment
It was previously announced that "Pirates of the Caribbean" director Gore Verbinski will not helm the fourth installment because he will instead direct a big screen adaptation of the "Bioshock" video game.

Soon after, the project was put on hold until producers figured out a way to lower the budget, focusing on moving the shoot outside of the US to get tax brakes.

Verbinski now tells LA Times that moving the project to a foreign country may mean the end of his involvement as the director.

"The bottom line is it has to shoot out of the States for budget reasons and my schedule may be prohibitive," he explained. "There's a great script and a really interesting cast. It really comes down to the financial model now. Big movies are just not being shot in the States. I'm weighing whether I can physically go the UK or Australia or one of those other places with a tax rebate for a year-and-a-half."

Cool game- not sure if it could translate to film though. Still waiting for the Oddworld movie.

This would not have been good, video game adaptations rarely are...there was one recently that was not too bad but I forget what it was...not Max Payne tho, that was awful
