The BioShock Movie Just Lost Its SECOND Director

In case you somehow thought the ill-fated BioShock movie project would emerge from the depths of production hell and actually get filmed, know that this seems even more unlikely now given the fact the film has lost its second director.

28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who came onboard in 2010 to replace the departed Gore Verbinski, has now in turn walked away from the project.

"To be honest, by now, I'm completely out of that, and developing other stuff," Fresnadillo told IndieWire. "Right now it's on hold. The studio and the video game company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating."

Which is exactly the same place this movie has been since 2008.

    Hmm... Didn't someone notice this over the weekend?
    Oh, it was Logan. And he managed to put more detail into the article two days ago than Luke did today...

    Considering there was talk of wanting it to be PG rated than it is much better off not getting made (Bioshock anything but R would be insulting)

    Anyway i know for a fact that 99.9% of fans would much prefer it wasnt made if it didn't get the approval and match the high standard of quality set by Ken Levine and the Irrational team.
    Just frop the project already, no one wants to see Bioshock get the Resident Evil treatment.

    they really should can it and hope a new guy will come out with a awesome script to make instead (which is exactly what happened with halo, it got caned and a no name came to Peter Jackson with the script for district 9)

    As long as the reasons for directors quitting are that they couldn't see eye-to-eye with the game studio, you can bet that we're better off without the movie than with the director getting their way.
