View Full Version : A Bioshock Movie Trilogy?

Why not? The story in the game is already giving us a prequel in Infinite. If they can make Pirates of the Caribbean movies based on a ten minute disney ride this should be a cake walk. I know there is a movie in talks already and they want to keep it true to Bioshock. I hope they consider that this is one of the Greatest original horror sci-fi stories of our generation and this should be shared on the big screen. what do you think?

Infinite is not a prequel (if that's what you meant). It is set several decades before the others but it is unlikely to have anything to do with the story of Rapture.
There is talk of a movie but they haven't even got a go-ahead for one yet let alone three.
Also there are other discussions on a possible Bioshock Movie.

Sorry friend I am aware of all the background of the movie progress. I am trying to make a push for the bioshock story to be realized at it's full potential. Gore Verbinski, who was slated to be the original director, had the right mindset for a solid R horror film that would be true to Bioshock. He also directed "Pirates", all I want is the exposure for bioshock it deserves and a three part series would not be out of the question.

I would have liked to see Gore direct, all of his movies are fairly enjoyable especially the Pirates films. I wasn't much of a fan when they were in theaters but I really enjoy them now. You'll find more opinions on various directors littered over several movie threads in the forums. It's taking so long with so many issues just to get the first one out that wishing for a trilogy might be a tall order. Still, especially the effective way multiple plotlines were intertwined and handed off in the Pirates movies, it would be interesting to see something similar for Bioshock. I would hope they would create a new plot though, most of BS is fetch or kill quests and it wouldn't make for a very interesting movie with all the stuff we were running around for.

No probs emmettmjean. Apologies if I sounded a bit catty there. I agree that anything we the fans can do to push the development of a bioshock movie is well worth doing.

I would love to see the first film start off on New Years Eve, see the 'mostly' normal Rapture residents begin to prepare for the New Years Eve party getting dressed up heading down to the party and we see the chaos unfold. I think that would make for a very intense opening sequence to the movie..

I'll just say what has been pretty much said in the other Bioshock movie threads. Yeah it would be awesome but video game movies tend to usually suck. Before you can even think a Trilogy you have to get one made first then have it succeed, and the money for an R rated Bioshock is not there, its not exposure the movie needs its millions of dollars fund it. Sadly I don't think any of the 6000 plus members on these forums have those millions.

I kinda wish that Take 2 had their own movie-production studio like Square Enix and Ubisoft do, they could do themselves a nice CGI film, and not worry about external royalties and all that stuff.

In January 2010 the project was in pre-production stage, with director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo and Braden Lynch, a voice artist from BioShock 2 both working on the film. By July the film was facing budget issues but producer Gore Verbinski said they were working it out. He also said the film would be a hard R. Ken Levine, during an interview on August 30, 2010, said: "I will say that it is still an active thing and it's something we are actively talking about and actively working on." Verbinski later cited that by trying to maintain the "R" rating, they were unable to find any studios that would back the effort, putting the film's future in jeopardy.
It was started but has had many fallbacks.

I'm glad that Verbinski stood still on his decision to have the movie R rated, even if it cost the movie's existence.
1. Bioshock isn't for teenagers (or at least immature people)
2. It would be better not to have a terrible movie, to keep the franchise clean.

@ juan29zapata- I totally agree, if in the end they do not make a huge motion picture, it would be nice to have a cgi or even a possible anime style bioshock made for fans. Bioshock might have its full potential reached through animation without the boundries they could encounter in a motion picture. @ precipice66 no worries, i do not normally follow or post any threads, didn't know about all the other threads on the movie before, this my apologies to everyone.

If Bioshock 2's release trailer (which was CGI) is anything to go on, I think that Take 2 could very much do the movie themselves. Unless they hired someone else for that trailer.
