2K Games made a really cool announcement today that BioShock is going to be turned into a live action movie by Universal Pictures. It seems that BioShock isn’t destined to be turned into a farce of a video game film like Doom was thanks to some top talent signed on for the film.

The director of the film will be Gore Verbinski who directed the fantastic Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy is on for producing and directing the film. John Logan, an Academy Award-nominated writer for Gladiator, The Aviator and Sweeney Todd is in talks to write the screenplay.

Details on the film are not available like release date. Since they are only now talking to a screenplay writer it may well be years before we see the movie. "We are excited that 2K Games' vision for BioShock will be carried forward in a new medium," said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two. "BioShock has been hailed as one of the most highly cinematic and richly plotted titles in interactive entertainment, making it extremely well-suited to film. In partnering with Universal and Gore Verbinski, we have assembled a team that respects the uniqueness of BioShock and will translate it into a powerful movie experience."
