Netflix is in final negotiations to produce a movie adaptation of “BioShock,” the popular video game series set in an underwater city that’s been abandoned by the world above. The project is being produced by “The Avengers” and “Iron Man” screenwriter John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, with both sets to write the script and direct.

BioShock” is known for its rich storytelling and atmospheric setting, which could make it perfect for a movie adaptation.

In an unexpected turn of events, it was announced on February 26th that Netflix is making a movie adaptation of the popular video game, BioShock. The game, which was released in 2007, takes place in the underwater city of Rapture, where the inhabitants are forced to fight for survival against mutants and other dangers. Little is known about the Netflix version so far, but it will be produced by Gore Verbinski, who directed the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

It appears Netflix has headed for Rapture. claims that it is collaborating with 2K Interactive and Take-Two Interactive to produce a film adaptation for the BioShock series. It’s not clear if any other details are available, but it would be no surprise to see Netflix tackle the first BioShock game, based on the image that Netflix shared with its announcement.

BioShock has a high chance of being translated well to the big screen if Netflix chooses to release it theatrically. The original game was released in 2007 with a stunning Art Deco/underwater setting, and an unforgettable story. This is not to mention the great characters. However, it remains to see if the filmmakers can capture the terror of a Big Daddy charging towards you.

The movie is not the only BioShock project. Cloud Chamber is currently working on the next installment. This will be the first complete game in the series after 2013’s BioShock Infinite.
