A Bioshock Movie is Coming to Netflix

No details have been revealed about whether this film will be live-action or animated. If it were to follow the former option, it'd probably carry a hefty budge with visual effects, intricate creatures, and detail required in set design.

But Netflix has never been shy of dishing out money on its projects, so it's certainly a plausible endeavour.
