Any hope you had of the BioShock movie not being a total piece of garbage can now safely be thrown out the window, onto a pile of pointy things that hurt a lot. The movie has a new director in the form of Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, of 28 Weeks Later fame. He replaces Gore Verbinski, the guy who directed the fun-for-the-first-time Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Mr. Carlos Fresnadillo was nominated for an Academy Award for his short film Esposados, which I’m watching now on Google Videos. I guess the very fact that he was nominated for an Academy Award might ensure that the BioShock movie won’t be junk, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

As for Mr. Verbinski, he stays on as a producer.

If you want to experience a cinematic BioShock experience, just play the damn game. It’s better than anything that’ll come out of Hollywood.
