BioShock to rock the big screen?

Just when you thought the landscape was littered with enough videogame-inspired movies as it were, along comes news that Universal Studios is conspiring with 2K Games to produce yet another one -- BioShock. At the helm is director Gore Verbinski, who has asked playwright John Logan to join in on the fun. Of course, the triad wouldn't be complete without the inclusion of BioShock's creative director, Ken Levine, who has been serving as Verbinski's consultant for the upcoming movie. So why does Gore feel the need to fill Hollywood's Rapture void?

"I think the whole Utopia-gone-wrong story that's cleverly unveiled to players is just brimming with cinematic potential. Of all the games I've played, this is one that I felt has a really strong narrative."

We couldn't agree with you more, Mr. Verbinski. If ever there was a reason to own an Xbox 360, BioShock would be it. Oh wait a minute... you're talking about turning it into a movie? It still sounds like another potential hit in the making, but one has to wonder how they plan on getting around those interesting plot twists that most people attending the movie are likely to already know about. I guess we can bury any hopes of BioShock being the next Empire Strikes Back, but there's still a ton of potential here. Think it will work?
