Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is now in talks to take the helm of the BioShock movie project, with director Gore Verbinski stepping down but still attached to produce.
This comes as Universal move to trim down the cost of the $160 million flick, they moved it abroad to shoot on the cheap. Uni has already vowed this won't be another 'Halo' incident.
Fresnadillo directed 28 Weeks Later, and is "stepping into one of the highest profile projects on the Universal roster," reports . Verbinski couldn't stay with the project because of his commitment with Paramount to direct the animated 'Rango' with Johnny Depp.
This is all speculation technically as Take-Two reserve director approval for BioShock. Will they get the thumbs up? Would you give them thumbs up?
Fresnadillo is now BioShock's movie director, Verbinski is no more
