'We'd like a BioShock movie made' - Ken Levine

But the right pieces need to be in place first

BioShock: Infinite creative director and Irrational Games co-founder Ken Levine has said the studio would like to see a movie based on BioShock made, but that it can only happen when the "right pieces are in place".


While a movie based on the franchise has failed to get off the ground to date, Levine told IndustryGamers he thinks "there's probably a version of BioShock that makes a great movie".

"I think we're in the space now of building properties that are appealing to people... I think for us as a company, we don't have any need to get a movie made.

"We'd like to have a movie made, but it would have to be the right one, and we've had the opportunity to get it made and unless all the right pieces are in place - it's hard enough to get a movie made when all the right pieces are in place. If you don't start with the right pieces, you don't have a prayer".

Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski was attached to a BioShock movie, but it failed to see the light of day because he refused to make it a family-friendly film.
