Netflix is partnering with 2K and Take-Two Interactive to produce a live-action film adaptation of the renowned video game franchise, BioShock.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the deal between Netflix and Take-Two has been in the works for almost a year, although according to many sources, at this point there’s still no writer or director signed to take the project. There’s also no indication as to whether Levine, the creative director on BioShock and BioShock Infinite, will be involved in the project in any capacity.
Unfortunately, there’s virtually no info as to which aspect of the games will be adapted, though we will be sure to keep you updated as more info comes in.
Set across multiple dystopian and visionary landscapes gone wrong, the series blends sci-fi and horror to pose unique existential and societal questions that reshaped how game stories could be told – all amidst pulse-pounding action gameplay that rewards sharp shooting, clever planning, and lethal improvisation.
Across the titles’ original releases as well as multiple re-releases, remastered editions and bundled collections, the game series has sold more than 39 million copies worldwide, and is widely recognized as one of the most celebrated and beloved series in all of gaming. The next installment is currently in development by Cloud Chamber.
