A Bioshock Movie is Heading to Netflix

Netflix continues to invest in video game adaptations with the announcement of a Bioshock movie that will be coming to the streaming service. The streamer has partnered with Take-Two Interactive, the game’s parent company, and 2k, the game’s publisher, to possibly build a cinematic universe based on this property.

So far, no filmmaker or cast members are attached to the film as it is still very early on in development. Netflix has also not confirmed whether the movie will be live-action or animated.

Released in 2007, Bioshock is an incredibly successful game that led to two other sequels: Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite. In the game, you play as Jack, who survives a plane crash in the Atlantic Ocean and winds up in the mysterious underwater city known as Rapture. The city is in turmoil as it has been divided into a civil war, with many of its citizens becoming addicted to a serum that gives them powers. The citizens also live in fear of Big Daddies, mutated humans who have merged with gigantic diving suits.

This is the Second Attempt at Developing a Bioshock Movie

This will be the second attempt at turning Bioshock into a movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal attempted to develop a film over a decade ago with Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski attached to the project. After Verbinski left the project, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) became attached to direct. Both Verbinski and Fresnadillo butted heads with the studio over things like “budget and an R-rating.” Eventually, Take-Two and 2k pulled the plug on the project.

Video game movies have been experiencing more success, with recent projects like Sonic the Hedgehog and Mortal Kombat performing admirably, with both getting sequels. Upcoming video game adaptations include Uncharted, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Borderlands, and an HBO series adaptation of The Last of Us.

For Netflix, video game adaptations have been going well thus far, with Dota: Dragon’s Blood, Castlevania, and Arcane: League of Legends being some of the service’s most popular series. The Witcher is currently one of Netflix’s most popular franchises, with a prequel spinoff on the way.

In addition to Bioshock, Netflix also has a Cuphead series coming soon and is also developing a series based on the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While video game adaptations seem to be cursed, recent shows like Arcane and The Witcher are proving that these adaptations can be great if the right creative team is attached.

Breaking Trailer Explained

BREAKING | Official Trailer | Bleecker Street

In the Breaking movie’s first teaser, a purported bank robbery turns into a political statement. John Boyega plays a former Marine who will stop at nothing to make his voice heard.

The true account of Lance Corporal Brian Easley, a soldier who tried to blow up a bank to draw attention to the American government’s mistreatment of the military, is told in the film Breaking, formerly known as 892.

The video immediately transports us to the Wells Fargo Bank building in the Atlanta suburbs of Georgia, where Easley decided to direct his attack to expose how the government deserts ex-Marines.

Easley was still doomed to poverty when he returned home after serving in the Navy, suffering from PTSD and visual field loss. The $892 cheque he was expected to receive from the Department of Veterans Affairs but never did was the tipping point.

Easley held a bank hostage while claiming to have bombs in his rucksack to garner the attention he desired. Despite using a violent threat to get police and the media to the bank, Easley was not after any blood, and he successfully negotiated the release of every hostage before he was slain.

Easley never intended to hurt anyone, which is further demonstrated by the fact that there were no explosives in his backpack. Boyega does an excellent job portraying a complex character in the trailer who is both ready to do whatever it takes to be heard and worried about other people’s safety.

Even though Easley didn’t survive the incident, the clip demonstrates how the next film would fairly address the veteran’s complaints.

Breaking is directed by Abi Damaris Corbin and Kwame Kwei-Armah wrote Breaking’s script, Breaking stars John Boyega, Michael K. Williams, Nicole Beharie, Selenis Leyva, and Connie Britton.

Breaking will be released in theatres on August 26.
