It has been confirmed that BioShock’s first-person shooter (FPS) has been adapted into a live-action film. Video-on-demand platform Netflix has confirmed that the project is underway. This was announced on the official Netflix Geeked Twitter account.
“We all make choices, but ultimately it’s those choices that define us. Netflix + BioShock, would you kindly stay tuned?” wrote the Netflix Geeked account. The sentence “would you kindly…” written by the Netflix Geeked account is a typical sentence in the BioShock game.

During the BioShock storyline, this phrase becomes a “spell” that can make Jack the main character of BioShock do as ordered without controversy. Jack himself is depicted as a genetically modified character from an early age.
On its official page, Netflix has revealed that it is working with BioShock game publishers 2K and TakeTwo Interactive on this project. This live-action film will also be produced by Vertigo Entertainment, the creators of the LEGO Batman Movie and Death Note and many more.
The live action movie will be aired on Netflix
Quoting from The Hollywood Reporter, The live-action BioShock to stream on Netflix has been in development for nearly a year. Netflix has not announced when the movie will be released. It is not yet known which actors will appear in the film. The same goes for the screenwriter and director of the film.
BioShock itself was first released in 2007 on Xbox 360 and PC. It then came to the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console in 2008. BioShock has sold over 39 million copies worldwide and is recognized as one of the most loved games for its strong storylines.
Following the game’s success, a sequel was released in 2010 and a third game called BioShock Infinite was released in 2013. This isn’t the first time BioShock has been shown on the big screen. A live-action BioShock film was also planned for 2009. However, the plan failed due to lack of budget.
