BioShock movie adaptation stalled because of need for R rating

So what happened to all those plans for a BioShock movie? At one point it was reported that the film adaptation of Irrational Games' first person shooter was being held up by a budget that was too high. Now in a recent chat over at ComingSoon.net the movie's now former director Gore Verbinski we find out there was another reason for the delay.

According to him, "I couldn't really get past anybody that would spend the money that it would take to do it and keep an R rating. Alternately, I wasn't really interested in pursuing a PG-13 version." We can certainly see his point that any BioShock movie that would be true to the game's vision will indeed have to be bloody and scary in order to work.
