Is anyone going to be able to get the popular video game “Bioshock” into theatres? It doesn't seem like it now that another director has passed on the project.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was doing press for his new movie “Invaders” and was asked about the Bioshock movie he was supposed to direct with Gore Verbinski set to produce. Here's what he said:

"To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that, and developing other stuff. Right now it’s on hold. The studio and the videogame company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating."

No real concrete word on what he's doing next, but a remake of “Highlander” is a possibility.

"I’m developing the possibility of making 'Highlander. I find the concept very interesting, immortality as a curse. We’re using the materials of the universe, but this is some kid of reboot, since the story could use a new approach. Everything comes from the universe of the original film. There will be no aliens!"

    Incredibles was the best all rounder movie in animation history, humour for young & old, gadget & geek factor for young & old, family values, awsome backdrops of epic scale scenery.  Not to mention the... Spy factor! Secret islands! Apocalyptic doomsday robots! A freakin villain which goes by the name of "Syndrome" (totally awsome name for a villain by the way) Oh and did i mention all this in a SUPERHERO MOVIE!!!  I wish they make a sequel one day soon. Until then i guess i have marvel & DC to keep me entertained, but i suspect that any live action superhero movie may never live up to style and class of Incredibles.  PIXAR are truly genius. Thank you FROM, Nayan, U.K.
