The Bioshock movie loses another director, goes back to square one

In the case of a video game inspired movie, producers generally only want to see nothing higher than a PG-13 rating so they can appeal to the widest audience possible, but in the case of Bioshock, it could really benefit from an R. And because of these kinds of decisions, the Bioshock movie is in limbo again after losing its second director, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

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 videogame company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating.”

So right now, the movie is in exactly the same spot it was in 2008. Eventually, someone’s just going to say “Fuck it” and give the movie to Uwe Boll.
