BioShock Film Halted by Universal

bioshockWuh oh. Universal Studios have halted production on the movie version of BioShock. Produced by Gore Verbinski, Universal have stopped production for budget reasons and have even let several of the production staff go as the film entered pre-production.

However, Universal have not pulled the plug on the project altogether, it is just to see if they can make the movie in a cheaper way. The movie was originally meant to be out by the end of next year to meet up with BioShock 3, according to Take Two.
