Screw that, the game already does the story perfectly.
I might be able to get behind a heavily Bioshock *inspired* movie but I'd rather they just leave the game alone.
Guillermo Del Toro would be fantastic!
I said in another thread the other day but I’m sad Gore Verbinski didn’t get to do his Bioshock film. I think it could have turned out great. It’s all I could think about when I was watching A Cure for Wellness, which is super underrated by the way.
Wait your turn, I'm still waiting for "The Mountains Of Madness"!
[Dark City](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1V5LcvK2ns) was also an inspiration Ken Levine (BioShock game director) used when making the game.
[This scene](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJwoueazGeI) from the movie in particular was an inspiration for the plasmids & fake memories.
I love the idea of a Bioshock film and Guillermo Del Toro would be an excellent choice to get it done. Another trip to Rapture, regardless of medium, gets me all kinds of excited. But I simply don't trust that it would be executed well and I'd rather no movie than a bad one.
But who knows, BR 2049 should have been a dud and it's now one of my all-time favorites.
Uh, the way you word it OP, sounds like you still haven’t seen The Shape of Water...
why does it need to be a movie? just play the fucking game
Pan's BioShock Labyrinth, seems a good movie
Even the music fits the bioshock tack despite not set in the same time.
Alas I fell asleep, fuck knows how as I was enjoying the movie!
And he probably has played the game.
Instead of bioshock, think Soma. Similar world and a story more suitable for movies. Not that bioshock doesn't have a good story, I'd just hate to see studios ruin what is already a great story.
