In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Ken Levine Opted "To Kill" The BioShock Movie

Posted on Tuesday, March 12 @ 14:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Ken Levine has been working with Universal and film director Gore Verbinski in an effort to get a BioShock film made, but after the pieces weren't lining up like the Irrational Games boss hoped, he decided to call the whole thing off.

“The studio then got cold feet about making an R-rated $200 million film, and they said what if it was a $80 million film – and Gore didn’t want to make a $80 million film,” Levine explained at a BAFTA talk (via Eurogamer). “They brought another director in, and I didn’t really see the match there – and 2K’s one of these companies that puts a lot of creative trust in people. So they said if you want to kill it, kill it. And I killed it.”

If history is any indication, there's a good chance the movie would have turned out to be a disappointment, blemishing the franchise for years to come. You've got to commend Levine for his desire to not move forward on something unless he's sure he can do right by his audience. Speaking of which... Don't forget that BioShock Infinite launches on March 26th!
