When it was announced that a BioShock movie was being made, fans of the video game went wild with excitement. Then, Gore Verbinski was brought in to make the film and fans excitement grew. Unfortunately though, there was a bit of a difference of opinion over what the rating of the movie should be, before the project was then scrapped.
Now, while talking about his latest movie The Lone Ranger. Gore touched on the BioShock movie and what he feels went wrong with the project, admitting that he would have loved to have got the movie made.
Verbinski told DenOfGeek, "Yeah. That would have been fun. That would have been really, really fun. We started building sets. We just started building them, and pre-vizzing some sequences. I just couldn't manage a PG-13 version of the film, with the Little Sisters and the injections."
He added, "To get an appropriate balance level. And yet it's an art deco world, so there's so much building of sets. We couldn't go on location. Basically, we were constructing a space station."
Gore Verbinski's new movie The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, is out now in the US and opens in the UK on August 9.
