Netflix has announced that Francis Lawrence will be directing its live-action Bioshock adaption with Michael Green set to write the screenplay.
Netflix partnered with 2K and Take-Two Interactive to produce a live-action film adaptation of FPS RPG Bioshock. Fans have long clamored for a big-screen adaption of the game, with fan-made posters and videos showing the potential. The adaption will be directed by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, I Am Legend, Slumberland), with a screenplay by Michael Green (Logan, Blade Runner 2049, Death on the Nile). It will be executive produced by Cameron MacConomy & Strauss Zelnick.
Bioshock was released in 2007 and tells the story of a man trapped in a dystopian underwater city whose inhabitants have gone made due to the use of an unstable genetic material called ADAM. The series was well received and went on to get a direct sequel in the form of Bioshock 2, and later a third game titled Bioshock: Infinite.
There is no word on a planned release window for the Netflix adaption.
