Juan Carlos Fresnadillo No Longer Directing 'Bioshock'

By AMC March 27, 2012

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!"
