The BioShock movie seemed to come to a screeching halt when studio executives decided to find a cheaper place to shoot the film and a new director. According to a report from Variety, it appears Universal Pictures is negotiating with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, the director of zombie flick 28 Weeks Later, to direct the BioShock movie.
The film was originally going to be directed by Gore Verbinski, but since the studio decided to move productions overseas, he stepped down from director, and is now listed as a producer instead. While Fresnadillo is not as well known as Verbinski, it’s nice to hear some news regarding the flick. Hopefully this movie will be better than all the other video game movie adaptations.
