Gore Verbinski Talks Bioshock Kerfuffle

Big Daddy BioShock

So yeah, remember when Gore Verbinski was set to direct a film adaptation of BioShock? Well, so does he and his memories of it aren’t exactly happy either.

Read on for an excerpt from a recent Reddit AMA in which he lays out the situation for us.

“Well it’s no short answer to that question but we were eight weeks prior shooting when the plug was pulled. It’s an R rated movie. I wanted to keep it R rated, I felt like that would be appropriate, and it’s an expensive movie. It’s a massive world we’re creating and it’s not a world we can simply go to locations to shoot. “A Cure For Wellness”, we were able to really utilize a variety of location to create the world. “BioShock” it wouldn’t work like that, we’d be building an entire underworld universe. So I think the combination of the price tag and the rating, universal just didn’t feel comfortable ultimately.”

At that time also there were some R rated, expensive R rated movies that were not working. So I think things have changed and maybe there will be another chance, but it’s very difficult when you’re eight weeks away from shooting a movie you really can see in your head and you’ve almost filmed the entire thing, so emotionally you’re right at that transition from architect to becoming a contractor and that will be a difficult place to get back to.

One day, man. One day!

Things Get Bloody on Blu-ray When The Sword and the Claw Clash!

Published

on

Get ready to fight dirty as the two-fisted, ultraviolent grindhouse classic The Sword and the Claw is poised to hose down your home video collection with geysers of arterial spray! Coming to us from Alamo Drafthouse’s American Genre Film Archive on January 23, 2018, this is one title you’re not gonna wanna miss!

We’ve been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades,” said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. “We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey’s most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn’t be happier to share it with the world.

Special features include a new 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print, face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault, and bonus movie Brawl Busters, which features a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print.

The eye candy doesn’t stop there either! This bad boy is coming with some neat reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders)!

Synopsis:
They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as the “Dirtiest fighting ever!”
