Concept art revealed for the BioShock movie that will never happen

first_imgBefore BioShock Infinite’s Burial at Sea brought us back to the underwater dystopia of Rapture, a live-action movie produced by Universal was our only hope, despite most video game movies ending up subpar. If there ever were a video game that could translate well to the big screen, though, it’d be BioShock, so fans were excited nonetheless. The movie had some big names attached, as Gore Verbinski was set to direct, and John Logan (of The Last Samurai) was set to write the script. Eventually, the movie-runner was switched to someone else who Ken Levine felt wasn’t a good match, and Levine himself stepped in to axe the project, saying he’d only want it done if it were done right. The closest we’ll get to the movie for now is some recently released concept art from the film.Concept artist Tim Flattery released a handful of images that capture what the BioShock film would’ve looked like. It’s tough to say how the assets would translate to a live-action film, but the concept art definitely captures the tone and atmosphere of the original game. The bathysphere in particular looks phenomenal; the living room aesthetic stuffed into a small submersible with the underwater city of Rapture visible in the distance looks especially creepy.The Big Daddy also appears in true-to-game form, more or less, and it’s a shame we aren’t going to get to hear the Hollywood version of the ominous, reverberating whale calls the creatures make while aimlessly wandering around the sunken city. If you wanted to sit in a dark theater and experience that noise with movie-quality surround sound, don’t give up hope just yet, as Ken Levine is definitely tied to telling the stories of Rapture, which he showed with the two Burial at Sea episodes. Perhaps he’ll attempt a BioShock movie sometime after the second episode of BaS drops.For now, all we can do is look at pretty art of what might’ve been.
