In February, Netflix announced that it was working with 2K and Take-Two Interactive for a live-action movie based on the BioShock series, much to the delight of fans. The project has now taken an important step forward. She now has a writer and director on board. Michael Green (Logan, Blade Runner 2049 and American Gods) is writing the script, while Francis Lawrence will direct the film.
Lawrence has also directed four of the five Hunger Games movies as well as some episodes of the Apple TV See+ series. In fact, he’s currently filming The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, so he’s a bit busy at the moment. We shouldn’t expect a BioShock trailer for quite some time.
It looks like the movie will be adapted from the first game, which makes sense. Netflix’s Tudum explains some of the basics of the original BioShock and notes that Lawrence “will be donning a Big Daddy suit and preparing to take on the flooded lanes of Rapture soon.” Things are looking good so far, but we hope Netflix will reveal more details about the movie soon. As mentioned above, it may take some time for us to get more information.
