What Could Have Been: The BIOSHOCK Movie
by Malik Forté on January 16, 2014
There once was a Bioshock movie that began development back in 2008. But after Universal cut the movie’s budget by 60 percent, forcing the movie to undergo a change in its director, Ken Levine stepped in and had all production of the movie halted for good.
Whether or not we’ll ever see anyone take another crack at making a Bioshock movie remains to be seen. But at least for now, we do have a neat collection of concept art that was acquired by Film Sketchr. Artist Jim Martin (Hulk) concocted these grim environmental design concepts for the cancelled film. If you look close enough, you may see a figure that slightly resembles Booker Dewitt in a couple of the pictures, which is odd considering these sketches came to fruition well before Bioshock Infinite‘s time. Either way, upon first gazing at the artwork, one can only sit back and aimlessly wonder what could have been.
