‘Bioshock’ director hopeful for film adaptation
And now for a horror served underwater.
The film adaptation of the popular Bioshock the video game is evolving rapidly, with both director Francis Lawrence (hunger games) and screenwriter Michael Green (Blade Runner 2049) on board. And confidence seems to be there for the film.
Lawrence recently told Collider that Green “is writing it right now. We already have our plan, so everything is done. He is now writing.
the original Bioshock The game follows a man exploring the now-vanished and decimated underwater city called Rapture. Now, in the once-promising utopia, dangerous mutants are left to become twisted and violent in a society ravaged by civil war.
Asked about the problems inherent in adapting such a video game to the screen, Lawrence said, “First of all, I think it’s one of the best games ever made. It is also one of the most visually unique games. The other thing is that it’s very thematic.
The director added that there are “real ideas and philosophies under the ownership of the game, and it’s really well thought out. A lot of games don’t have the weight and gravity that Bioshock Is.”
Additionally, Lawrence said, “One of the other things I like is this mix of genres – it feels like a period piece, mixed with body horror, mixed with science- fiction.”
