In the last decade, video games have grown as a means of entertainment to such a degree that many film companies have worked on adapting video game series to the screen. Not all, unfortunately, have come to fruition and one of them was BioShock. Very little is known about this project, which was apparently canceled after budget problems. Well, if you are one of those who imagines what could become of the film, then this will interest you, as 2 actors were revealed who could have a role in it.
As appealing as the idea of making a BioShock movie seemed, there were a number of reasons why it didn’t happen. It was known that the project was underway, but in 2012 budget and creativity problems began to come to light, which neither Ken Levine, creator of the series, nor Gore Verbinski, director of the project, liked, which led to the tape’s cancellation, something we found out about in 2013.
However, the project progressed far enough to hold auditions and, although potential candidates were never revealed to bring the BioShock characters to life, today we know that 2 important actors were able to be part of the production.
ACTORS FROM THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING AND FIFTY SHADES OF GRAY AUDITIONED FOR BIOSHOCK
In an interview with Variety, actor Eddie Redmayne ( The Theory of Everything ) revealed that he and his roommate in the past Jamie Dornan ( Fifty Shades of Gray ) were able to participate in the BioShock movie.
Although the actor made a very sporadic mention about this, he confessed that they recently recalled together with Andrew Garfield ( The Amazing Spider-Man ), who also shared a room with them, about the tapes in which they were involved in the old days and curiously revealed that one of them was BioShock .
This is very interesting, because both actors are recognized in the world of cinema. Redmayne, for example, won an Oscar for best actor in The Theory of Everything (for which he was also nominated at the Golden Globes). He also participated in The Danish Girl and Les Miserables (2012) , he is currently filming Fantastic Animals 3 .
Jamie Dornan is not far behind, as he is an actor who has won several awards and nominations for his work in important projects, such as the series Once upon a time , the film Marie Antoinette or perhaps you know him more for the role of the protagonist in Fifty shades of gray and its sequels.
THE ACTORS COMPETED TO BE THE SAME CHARACTER
Something interesting that Redmayne managed to reveal is that both actors auditioned for the same character, so “they were furious with each other.” Unfortunately, the actor did not share more details and the film did not come to fruition, so we do not know what role they were competing for. However, taking into account the youth of Redmayne and Dornan at that time (2010s) and the renown of the actors, they were most likely looking for a leading role, precisely that of Jack, the protagonist of the game, who, although in the title You can’t see his face, it would be different in the movie.
There is also the possibility that they have auditioned for the role of Andrew Ryan or Atlas. Interestingly, Dornan is Irish, just like the accent Atlas has in the game.
Taking into account that the director of the project, Gore Verbinski, once said that they were “8 weeks away from starting recordings when it was canceled,” apparently after the auditions it was decided who would get the role, but we will have to keep the He doubts whether it was Jamie Dornan, Eddie Redmayne or some other actor who would stay with him.
We leave you with an image of the 2 actors that photographer Zoe McConnel shared on her Instagram for the Variety article.
Would you have liked to see a BioShock movie ? What do you think of the actors who could have participated in the film? Tell us in the comments.
After hearing of its cancellation, little has been said about the project, but there are reasons to think that it could ever become a reality, at least that is how the original director of the film has let it be seen. There was even the actress Elizabeth ([url = / PC / games / 35764 / BioShock-Infinite] BioShock Infinite ) tried to convince Ken Levine to take up the project [/ url], but apparently it was unsuccessful. However, there are clues that Sony may be interested in an adaptation and a rumor states that production is supposedly still in development.
