Gore Verbinski Talks BioShock Delays; Wants R Rating

The last time we spoke about the possibility of a big screen adaptation of the hit 2K Games property BioShock was nearly a year ago. Sadly the project, like many others before it, has hit lots of pitfalls and delays, and today the film’s producer Gore Verbiniski has shed some light on why.

In an interview with IGN Verbinski dropped the following on curious fans —

“We’re working trying to make it. The problem with BioShock was: R-rated movie, underwater, horror. It’s a really expensive R-rated movie,” he explained. “So we’re trying to figure out a way working with [director] Juan Carlos [Fresnadillo] to get the budget down and still keep so it’s true to the core audience, you know? The thing is it has to be R, a hard R. We don’t want to dumb it down, we don’t want to make it PG-13. We want to keep it really edgy, and it’s a huge bill.”

Amen, brother. Look for more hopefully soon!

    I don’t think Bioshock is comparable to Prince of Persia; they’d live in seperate genres. Besides, PoP has done well overseas.

    Congrats to Verbinksi on knowing what it takes to make this movie work.

    I don’t think anyone will be rushing to do video game properties after Prince of Persia did so poorly. I’d rather see no Bioshock than a dumbed down one.
