Bioshock Movie Update From Writer Sounds Positive

Bioshock movie update from writer Michael Green sounds positive! Green has been working on the Bioshock movie at Netflix.

A recent Bioshock movie update from writer Michael Green sounds positive! Green has been working on a script for the Bioshock movie at Netflix for some time. However, the recent writers strike obviously put a spanner in that project for a while. Now the writers strike is over, Green tells Collider that Netflix were straight onto him to get an update on his progress.

“You have to measure your words, or you’ll start to see a laser pointer at my forehead from the Netflix legal. Netflix has been amazing about it. They were excited about it before the strike, they’re excited about it now, post-strike. Yes, I got called, the, ‘How’s it coming along?’ the minute the strike was over, ‘You about ready…?’ Been meeting regularly with Francis Lawrence and his team to refine a draft to go back in. We’re all optimistic. We all love it. It’s a great big sprawling nightmare world we wanna see real. So, here’s hoping. I would love to have an update for you soon.”

Lawrence is currently the director of the movie when it is ready to shoot. Last year he confirmed Green was writing the script for the upcoming video game adaptation.

If you’ve never heard the name Bioshock before then I’ll give you a brief non-spoiler summary of the original game. The original Bioshock is set in the early 60’s and set in an underwater city called Rapture. The player arrives in Rapture after a plane crash in the ocean and discovers that this once thriving society has fallen into tragedy and horror. There are many mysteries to discover in Rapture. Additionally strange powers and abilities to acquire as the player traverses through an undersea kingdom on a quest for revenge.

Bioshock has since spawned two sequels, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock: Infinite. All three were great games for a variety of reasons though my personal favorite will always be the first one. In fact it may be my favorite ever single player story driven game. The gameplay was great, but it was the story being told that hooked me. Therefore, let’s hope that bodes well for a movie.

Currently we have zero details on timelines or characters, so for now we can’t say how like or unlike the game this film will be? For now it looks like Netflix remain hot for Bioshock so let’s hope we get a cool movie. The ingredients are there, but we all know how video game adaptations can go.

Developers Take Two are also developing a fourth Bioshock game for the current gen of consoles and PC. However, no details have yet been revealed to the public.

What do you think of the Bioshock movie update from writer Michael Green? Thoughts below as always.
