BIOSHOCK Movie Finally Moving Forward With THE HUNGER GAMES Director Francis Lawrence At The Helm

We finally have some good news about the Bioshock movie as Netflix has tapped Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and Michael Green (Logan) to bring the iconic video game to the streaming service...

There's been talk for years about a movie adaptation of Bioshock, but the project is finally gaining steam according to Deadline (via SFFGazette.com).

The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence will take the helm of the project, while Logan and The Jungle Cruise scribe Michael Green is set to pen the movie's screenplay. As you may remember, Netflix announced back in February that they were teaming up with Take-Two Interactive to finally bring this story to life on screen. 

The trade adds that all parties were looking to attract a top-tier creative team, and we'd definitely say they succeeded.

Lawrence has reportedly been in talks to join Bioshock since the spring, but he'll have to finish working on The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes before he can turn his attention to this project. Green remains hard at work on the screenplay, though, and the director is expected to jump straight into making this movie once he's done with that prequel. 

In the game, players explore the undersea city of Rapture, a haven for society's greatest minds that has devolved into a dystopian nightmare wrought by one man's hubris. Amidst the waterlogged ruins, a new ecosystem has emerged, where deranged Splicers hunt down the Little Sisters who would be helpless without their hulking Big Daddy guardians.

Your only hopes for survival are quick thinking, reclaimed weaponry, and superhuman powers granted by DNA-altering Plasmids. To defeat Rapture's mutated monsters, you must become one. It's a fun sci-fi/horror hybrid that, across a number of titles, has sold more than 39 million copies worldwide since first launching in 2007.

It goes without saying that we can't wait to see Bioshock take shape and a first look at the live-action Big Daddy - while obviously a long way off - really can't get here soon enough.

For now, there's no word on when Bioshock will premiere on Netflix. Stay tuned for updates.
