The film adaptations of BioShock might both be dead in the water, but Gamespot managed to unearth some of the concept art from the cancelled Gore Verbinski project.
There are ten images in total released by artist Kasra Farahani and can be viewed on his website. The art appears to show Rapture's power generators, fueled by Little Sisters. Big Daddies stalk the halls and fight marauding hostiles. Solitary figures absorb blue liquid from overhanging IV tubes. It all looks dour, gloomy, and wistfully beautiful. It is hard not to wonder what the finished film might have looked like.
This isn't the first time that concept art has leaked from the cancelled BioShock films. After the initial $200 million budget was slashed to $80 million and Gore Verbinski left the project, 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was brought on with a new vision. Ken Levine ultimately shut down production on Fresnadillo's version of BioShock, concept art of which can be found on the portfolio of Jim Martin.
