This concept art tells the story of the BioShock film that never was

New, 18 comments

New concept art for the cancelled BioShock movie shows off the Rapture that never was, thanks to images released by artist Kasra Farahani.

You can check out the gallery in full on Farahani's website, which offers a glimpse at the enormous scale of Rapture and of Big Daddies and Little Sisters before the film was canned.

Farahani had previously worked as a concept designer for Academy awar winnng production designer Rick Heinrichs on the unproduced Gore Verbinski film.

This, of course, isn't the first time we've seen concept art for the BioShock film. Earlier this year concept artist Jim Martin made his work available, which you can check out here.

BioShock mastermind Ken Levine said last year that he canceled the film after its budget was reportedly slashed from $200 million to $80 million. There were also disagreements with the replacement director Universal Studios brought in after the original director, Gore Verbinski, departed the project.
