Levine enthused by BioShock movie
Hollywood movie mogul Gore Verbinski won't be creating a dreadful cinematic rendition of movie title BioShock, that's the promise this week from game designer Ken Levine, the 2K developer telling VG247 that Verbinski understands what the franchise is about.
"You’re always going to be worried that in that first meeting they’re going to be, like, ‘OK, it’s Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey on a desert island hunting for pirate treasure,’ but it’s not going to go that way," he quipped.
"My expectation at this time, from everything that I’ve heard, is that it will very much honour the dramatic and thematic elements of the game… They certainly understand the material and are able to provide a stamp of their own."
The film is slated to debut in 2010, and Levine is accepting that some elements may have to change, given the conforms of the medium.
He concludes: "They [Take-Two] did a really good deal, not in terms of the financials, but in terms of the people he chose to work with, and how it’s going to impact on the franchise… there are a lot of smart people involved."
