Kasra Farahani’s concept art for Bioshock is gorgeous. Too bad the studio and Gore Verbinski couldn’t agree on how to make the film.
By Andrew Allen
On one level, I am sad that I won’t get to see that concept art come to fruition onscreen. On another level, I am resolutely of the opinion that Bioshock shouldn’t be adapted as a film. It is a great victory of video game storytelling. It’s an awesome narrative that deserved to be experienced in the format it was created for…video games. Certain game series would be better off having movie adaptations. Bioshock is, in my opinion, video gaming’ masterpiece. It doesn’t need a movie anymore than Citizen Kane needed a novel.
