The movie version of BioShock, which has been stuck in development hell for years and has already gone through two directors, may still happen. BioShock creator and Irrational Games chief Ken Levine says the company plans to move forward with the movie after BioShock Infinite is complete.
"It's always about the stars aligning. We're still focusing on it, but it hasn't consumed us so much", said Levine. "Right now, we're choosing our battles and focusing on making BioShock Infinite."
Previously, there had been some disagreement between Irrational and Universal about the movie's rating. Universal wanted a PG-13, while Levine and co. pushed for an R rating and a movie that stayed true to the source material.
Directors Gore Verbinski and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo both dropped out of the project because they believed the two sides wouldn't be able to reach an agreement.
"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", Levine said.
BioShock Infinite hits on October 16.
