There isn't much you can't rely on in this life, but your favorite video games being turned into a movie seems to be something you can always count on. According to Joystiq, there is already talk of turning the best-selling game BioShock into a feature film. Joystiq reports that a trustworthy source at an as-yet-to-be named studio told them that the project has been garnering steam, and that big-wigs at Take 2 Interactive are already on board with the studio to bring the video game to the screen.

BioShock is set in a dystopian underwater city named Rapture in the year of 1960. The focus of the first person shooter is a man named Jack who has crash landed in the city and now is left with the daunting task of figuring out just what the hell is going on. The game was packed with plenty of style (tutorials are presented to the player in the form of vintage instructional films) and some pretty creepy characters. The game was praised for its open-ended game play and impressive A.I. The game has shipped over 1.5 million units already and Take 2 is already toying with the idea of turning the game into a franchise.

So like any game that is described as 'cinematic'; it was probably only a matter of time before talk of a movie surfaced. Already there is some speculation that BioShock would be another green screen extravaganza (like 300) to bring the world of Rapture to the screen. As we all know, video game flicks have never really lived up to their promise; it hasn't stopped studios from grabbing every title they can get their hands on. There is nothing official yet, but it would not surprise me in the least if BioShock is the next well crafted video game about to be turned into a crappy flick. So stay tuned to Cinematical to see if BioShock: The Movie becomes more than just idle Internet gossip.
