Gamers are all too used to seeing favorite and well-loved titles turned into disappointing movies. Remember Doom, Final Fantasy, and BloodRayne? Yeah, so do we, unfortunately. Which is why we're dancing with metaphorical joy at Variety's news that Gore Verbinski has signed to direct an upcoming movie based on last year's superb Bioshock. Verbinski's name - previously attached to the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy - should make sure the Bioshock movie project gets just as much attention as it deserves.
Oscar nominee John Logan (The Aviator, The Last Samurai) is already in the frame to provide the script, which (although no details are available yet) will, we hope, give us more insight into Bioshock's fascinating backstory. If you missed out on the game, which was released late last year on Xbox 360 and PC, it took place in a 1950s underwater city named Rapture, home at one time to a colony of idealistic capitalists, but which subsequently became overrun with bizarre genetic mutants.

Hey, at least Uwe Boll's not directing it! Another game I'm waiting to hit the $20 price tag.
