BioShock is quite the video game franchise, and as such, it probably surprises no one that a movie adaptation of the successful series was once attempted. As you can probably tell by the fact that no such movie exists at the moment, the attempt sadly did not end in success. A bit of history first: back in 2008, it was announced that Universal Studios would be producing a movie adaptation of the title with Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the directorial seat. Universal, however, wished for Verbinski to work with a smaller budget of $80 million instead of the intended $200 million, which made him step back as director – the role, eventually, was filled by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), but following Ken Levine’s discontent with the new director, the project was cancelled for good in 2013.

And now we jump to the present, or at least the not-very-distant past: just a few days ago, concept art from what the movie could’ve looked like surfaced online by courtesy of artist Kasra Farahani, including everything you’d expect from a project like this: Big Daddies, Little Sisters and – of course – Rapture itself.
