‘Bioshock’ Movie Adaptation In Development At Netflix
Bioshock was released in 2007. Subsequently, the game has had two sequels Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite. After a failed try over at Universal, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film adaptation has been picked up by Netflix. There is no writer or director on board yet for Bioshock. However, Vertigo Entertainment and the game’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive will produce the feature.
Bioshock is a mixture of sci-fi, horror, and action. The game takes place in an underwater city called Rapture. Rapture is in the middle of a civil war and filled with serum enhancement addicted citizens. This first-person shooter has mutants, a crumbling society, a plane crash survivor named Jack, oh and BIG DADDY. Any sci-fi fan will appreciate these things.

Hopefully, this doesn’t fall apart like the film Gore Verbinski’s previous R-rated vision for Universal. Unfortunately, the studio and director never saw eye-to-eye. Take-Two and Netflix have been working on a deal for the screen rights for months. This would finally get the film off the ground and if they decide to make a rated-R film, Netflix is the perfect place.
Video game adaptations have been a success over at Netflix. Castlevania, The Witcher, and Resident Evil are all apart of Netflix’s video game to streaming film/TV show pipeline. Moreover, they all fair well among other video game franchise adaptations for the streaming service. This film would more than likely be a success. Notably, the game has sold millions of copies, and consistently is in the mix for greatest video game ever. With this type of fanbase and praise, a movie on Netflix is impossible to miss.
