Verbinski Still Hopeful For Bioshock Film, Going To Be Hard-R
Gore Verbinski (Pirates 1-3) who was once attached to direct Bioshock based on the populr video game talked to IGN about the current status of the project which he is producing. The interesting part is that they're aiming for a Hard-R rating.
"We're working trying to make it. The problem with "Bioshock" was: R-rated movie, underwater, horror. It's a really expensive R-rated movie. So we're trying to figure out a way working with Juan Carlos (28 Weeks Lter) to get the budget down and still keep it so it's true to the core audience, you know? The thing is it has to be R, a hard R."
