Netflix’s Bioshock Movie Recruited Major Hunger Games and Logan Talent

Launched in 2006, Bioshock quickly became a popular video game property, and there were also many attempts to get a Bioshock the film adaptation has taken off since 2008. After nearly a decade and a half of setbacks, the Bioshock the film is now installed on Netflix, and today brings the word that The hunger Games“Francois Laurent and Logan‘s Michael Green were brought aboard the project.

Francis Lawrence, who led the last three of the main hunger games films, was asked to direct Bioshockand Michael Green, who wrote Logan (aka Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as Wolverine) is writing the screenplay. DeadlineThe editors of this official announcement noted that because Lawrence is currently working on the hunger games prequel The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpentsthe plan is for Green fit the Bioshock script in time for Lawrence to move into pre-production. The outlet also said that Netflix chose Lawrence to direct Bioshock because it has “shown its ability to adapt popular IP into global hits”.

Outside of the hunger games space, Francis Lawrence credits include Constantine, I’m a legend, Some water for the elephants, red sparrow and Slumberland, the latter being another upcoming Netflix movie. Green is also no stranger to gender work, as with Loganhe wrote movies like Blade Runner 2049, Murder on the Orient Express, Jungle Cruise and Death on the Nileas well as episodes of TV shows like Smallville, Hero and american gods. I’m crossing my fingers these two have a better chance of getting Bioshock on the floor that tied old talents like Gore Verbinski and John Logan. Before Netflix teamed up with Take-Two Interactive and 2K to create Bioshock happen, the project had been hosted at Universal Pictures.

For those who don’t know Bioshock, the main series blends first-person shooter and role-playing elements for stories set in a dystopian, sci-fi, and horror version of Earth. While the events of 2007 Bioshock and the 2010s Bioshock 2 took place respectively in 1960 and 1968 in the underwater city called Rapture, 2013 Bioshock Infinite dates back to 1912 and takes place in the levitating city called Columbia. The last two Bioshock games have delivered additional downloadable content/expansions, but next year will mark a decade since Infinitethe exit. A new Bioshock The game was announced to be in development in September 2019, but it’s unclear where things stand now.

It will be some time before Netflix subscribers can watch the Bioshock movie, but once again news is starting to roll in, including who will be in the main cast, we’ll pass that on. In the meantime, the 2022 Netflix movie schedule is available so you can find out what movie content the streaming service still has to offer this year.
