Bioshock movie still on - Levine

Game director confirms Hollywood still in sight

The Bioshock movie is still being actively worked on, according to game director Ken Levine.

Reports last month suggested that the Bioshock film might slip from grasp after the production ran into financial difficulty before it ever really got started.

"I will say that it is still an active thing," Levine has told DC radio station 106.7.

"It is something we are actively talking about and actively working on."

Levine went on to talk about the challenges of bringing Bioshock to the big screen calling it a "super, super challenge" (that's two times tougher than the mundane super challenge).

The game's director said that the main problem was transforming Jack from "a hand with a gun" to "a person who is going through some sort of progression through his life" while staying true to the original games.

Developer Irrational has recently left Rapture behind and launched Bioshock into the clouds with the announcement of Bioshock Infinite, which it's aiming to "blow gamers' minds" with.
