The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Ken Levine Opted "To Kill" The BioShock Movie

Posted on Tuesday, March 12 @ 14:00:00 PST 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!
