BioShock Movie: Never Lose Hope!

I am never going to lose hope on this production of the movie, this I think will be the escape the video game adaption of movies wants, correction needs!
BioShock to me revolutionized the way story was told in games, it wasn't the basic shoot then to the cut-scene kind of game it doesn't look at the cut-scene as shouldering or back up to diverse you into the story and expect you to care, instead it keeps the player on the ground and an amazing city for you to explore however the theme of objectivism is played in nice with the storyline.
I find it hard to see a BioShock movie, first of all who would play Jack (the main protagonist of the game) not only who but how? Jack is just a window to the BioShock universe, we control him obviously he doesnt make any linear movements that allows use to say anything about his character. He is the only problem I have with the concept of the movie.
I strongly believe Garry Schyman the games composer should remain the main artist. His music reflected the atmosphere amazingly well and should remain untouched, however I think its incredibly unlikely that Hollywood movies would allow a video game composer to work on a movie as stupid as it my sound.

So heres whose working on it so far:


Juan Carlos Fresnadillo


Gore Verbinski


John Logan 

Im not going to go into the possible actors because anyone could be picked and the film is not even close to that stage yet. Im quite proud of these three, I really liked Juan Carlos 28 Weeks Later he worked with quite average actors and did an awesome job with them.

With the release of Rango an upcoming movie starring Johnny Depp, Director Gore Verbinski was asked about the BioShock movie stating: 
"To get the budget down and still keep so it's true to the core audience."

He went on further to say:

"The thing is it has to be R, a hard R, we don't want to dumb it down, we don't want to make it PG-13. We want to keep it really edgy, and it's a huge bill."
Another video game adapted movie also had a a big bill Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time had a massive bill but made it to the box office, however when asked about Prince Of Persia he replied that BioShock is still amazing with "it's actually a great story.
