Pirates Of The Caribbean filmmaker Gore Verbinski is set to direct the silver screen adaptation of the hit video game BIOSHOCK, according to reports.
Universal Studios has signed a deal with the game's publisher, Take-Two Interactive - believed to be the biggest video game-to-cinema contract since Fox and Universal's 2005 negotiations with Microsoft for the now-aborted Halo movie, reports Variety.
BioShock, set in a nearly-deserted underwater city, has sold more than 2 million units worldwide.
