So that, uh, BioShock movie that's supposedly in the works? Attached director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is officially off the project, according to a story over at the Playlist.
Fresnadillo doesn't offer much in the way of an explanation, other than stating that the film is "on hold". He does mention the "studio and videogame company" are having trouble agreeing on how much to spend on the flick and the rating it should aim for. "Videogame company" is a little ambiguous, but I'm going to guess it's 2K the publisher pulling the strings here, rather than developers 2K Marin or Irrational.
The article doesn't mention who, if anyone, replaced Fresnadillo.
28 Days Later is, perhaps, my most favourite film ever, so I'm not too upset to hear he's cut ties, considering the bloody shambles he made of 28 Weeks Later. At any rate, I doubt we'll hear anything BioShock movie-related before the release of BioShock Infinite -- the cogs of Hollywood can be slow to turn.
