Gore Verbinski might have stepped out of the director's chair for BioShock, he is still onboard to produce. Though the project was put on hold by Universal, having helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo agree to direct will get things rolling again.

BioShock Director Found?

With tax credits overseas, BioShock is back up and running. Fresnadillo, who you might remember directed 28 Weeks Later, is looking to get behind the camera for one of Universal's biggest productions; and, might I add, biggest risks. Based on the popular video game, BioShock takes place in the underwater city of Rapture, where a pilot crash-lands near a secret entrance and becomes involved in a power struggle.

The fact that the story takes place underwater means a bigger budget was required. Once the expected cost rose above $160 million, Universal found their only cost-effective solution by shooting abroad.

When the production began to stall, Universal gave their word that we wouldn't have another Halo situation. Discussions with Fresnadillo prove that they are keeping to their promise.
