Levine killed BioShock movie project, Why?It was BioShock creator Ken Levine who pulled the plug on Universal's in development BioShock movie, after budget cuts left the project compromised, Levine told Edge at this week's BAFTA event in London.
"There was a deal in place and it was actually in production at Universal, and Gore Verbinski was directing it," said Levine. "And what happened was – this is my theory – it's a very big movie and Gore was very excited about it and he wanted to make a very dark, what he would call a 'hard-rated' horror film – an R rated film with a lot of blood. Then The Watchmen came out – and I really liked The Watchmen – but it didn't do well for whatever reason and the studio got cold feet about making an R rated $200 million film.
"So they said, 'Gore, what about it if it was an $80 million film?' and enough time had gone by where Gore didn't want to make an $80 million dollar film."
Levine continued: "They brought another director in and I didn't really see the match

BioShock Movie (2013) - TrailerLast month brought the sad news for video game fans that the developing adaptation of Bioshock wasn't making any progress and producers, along with Irrational Games executive Ken Levine weren't clamoring to get the film off the ground unless it was going to be just right. That comes after directors like Gore Verbinski and 28 Weeks Later filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo were attached to helm the feature. However, those updates were over a year ago, and with no progress on the film, a fan decided to take the project into his own hands and craft and eerie and wholly effective teaser trailer for the video game adaptation.

Here's the fan-made teaser trailer for Bioshock http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=qRa-78twi3s
It's not clear who made this impressive trailer since the YouTube account is simply named TheBioshockMovie and the only e-mail listed is for some banner called Majic Pictures, but I hope Universal is paying attention, because this is a great way to ki
BioShock Infinite: What It Tells Us About the GameIt’s amusing watching people describe the latest BioShock Infinite trailer as if developer Irrational were long lost and sending up a flare from the heart of some dark continent. Where did people think the game had gone? Did they miss the memo? The game was only announced two years ago, after all, and it’s been delayed once, and then by just a few months — from mid-October 2012 to Feb. 26, 2013.BioShock Infinite: What It Tells Us About the Game1 year ago in Personal More Like This
In the trailer, we get a closer look at Columbia, the mysterious floating sky-city occupying the game’s alternate history-verse circa 1912, decades before either BioShock or BioShock 2‘s 1960s-era gene-mangling tangos take place somewhere under the sea (though in fairness we’re still not certain the two worlds are linked).
We’re also given a closer look at the Sky-Hook, which resembles a claw-tipped prosthesis held as if clutching and aiming a rifle one-handed. Here we see the Sky-Hook doubling as a mangling tool, the end spinning like a circular saw bl
BioShock Infinite DLC Burial at SeaCome back to Rapture in a story that finds Booker and Elizabeth on the eve of the underwater city's fall from grace. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hep2NNBBV5ABioShock Infinite DLC Burial at Sea5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The two-part Burial at Sea will drop the lead characters of Infinite into the iconic city from the first BioShock game, in the middle of what looked like a noir-inflected mystery. Levine promised that you'll be seeing some familiar faces from the underwater city's tortured history. You can see glimpses of Booker and Elizabeth in Rapture in the teaser above. Levine said that making Elizabeth a playable character was another example of giving fans what they wanted. Burial at Sea will cost $20 for both parts $15 each for both parts, and the BioShock Infinite Season Pass is available for $19.99 (1600 Microsoft Points).
Would You Kindly - Bad Ending Would you kindly...Would You Kindly - Bad Ending2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Would you kindly lie,
filling my head with a false life.
The life you wanted.
Would you kindly make me a monster,
tell me to become the villain,
turn the Atlantic into a fiery-massacre.
Would you kindly lead me,
a shadow, twisted and deformed,
down every evil hall of the city.
Would you kindly toss me about,
like the wreck of the plane itself,
crumbled on the murky ocean floor.
Would you kindly warp my mind,
a mind I never had control of,
a puppet on a bloodied string.
Would you kindly...
Kindly, you bastards.
For every drop of blood I spill for you,
the more the city belongs to me.
