If there is a video game franchise that lends itself to being brought to the world of cinema, that is without a doubt that of Bioshock. This may seem more like a dream than a possibility in her lethargic state. But despite this, there are people in the world of cinema interested in creating a film adaptation of the game: screenwriter Greg Russo.
If you do not know his name, we will tell you that Greg Russo is responsible for writing the script for the recent Mortal Kombat movie. But as if this weren’t enough, the screenwriter is also working on several film projects related to video games, such as Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City, or adaptations of the Space Invaders and Saints Row sagas.
Work on Resident Evil, Space Invaders and Saints Row projects
Looking at his profile, it is clear to us that Russo is a lover of video games, and in fact he recognizes himself as such. The creative admits that if there is a game that he would love to make a movie about, it is Bioshock, one of his all-time favorites. This he confessed in a recent interview in which he described his vision for this supposed film: he would make it focusing on the horror that his first installment transmitted, and capturing his strange and wild world, but unique.
Another one who wants to make a Bioshock film
Interestingly, Russo is not the only one who has shown interest in making a Bioshock movie. Originally it was known that a feature film of the game was being produced in 2010 under the command of Gore Verbinski, director of Pirates of the Caribbean, although this ended up being canceled. Later, the Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro also acknowledged that he would love to turn Bioshock into a movie, although his words did not go from being mere wishes to specific intentions.
