News: To be directed by the Pirates of the Caribbean guy.

2K Games has announced that Universal Pictures has begun development on a movie based on one of last year's best-reviewed games, BioShock. And the first thing they've done is sign Gore Verbinski (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) to direct. Let's hope the BioShock movie is more Curse of the Black Pearl and less (a lot less) At World's End.

No release date has been announced and no one has been signed to be part of the cast yet, but Universal is talking to John Logan (Academy Award-nominated writer of Gladiator, The Aviator and Sweeney Todd) to write the screenplay.

If BioShock is unfamiliar to you, here's the best description of the Ayn Rand-inspired shooter that I've ever seen:

Considered to be one the finest games in the history of interactive entertainment, BioShock unfolds as a deep and exciting adventure. Barely surviving a plane crash, the player lands in icy uncharted waters and discovers an undersea city called Rapture, a failed utopia whose citizens had embraced genetic engineering before the city descended into pure anarchy. Power and greed have run amok and the city has succumbed to civil war. It is a gripping game that forces the player to make complex moral choices. Fans have embraced BioShock's mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. BioShock is also renowned for its rich visual detail depicting a gorgeous Art Deco world set deep beneath the sea.
