BIOSHOCK by John Silver, DreamWorks Pictures, Universal Pictures, 2K Games, and Take-Two Interactive

Based on the original action-horror thriller video game, Bioshock.

Plot: 1960 - While flying over the Atlantic Ocean, 20-something year old Jack awakens underwater to find himself the sole survivor of a plane crash and is forced to swim to a lighthouse. This leads him into a Bathysphere (spherical sub) and transports Jack to the underwater city Rapture, a utopia where the place was created to prevent "Parasites" from the outside world ruining one's paradise.

But since then, Rapture has fallen apart due to populations living in the underwater city causing constant anarchy and civil war between billionaire Andrew Ryan (the founder of Rapture) and the citizens who became Splicers and slowly went insane due to lack of social care programs, jobs, security, and authorities to help anyone in need.

This journey begins when Jack is rescued and guided by a smuggler known as Atlas, who assigns him a task to rescue his family from Andrew Ryan. In the process, Jack injects himself with ADAM, a chemically altering substance that enables him superpowers and strengthens him into becoming a fighter against the now insane bloodthirsty Splicers, armored super soldiers known as Big Daddies, protecting the Little Sisters (who carry ADAM and are genetically altered as a result) and security machines who endanger the young man.

As Jack walks through the horrors and disasters of Rapture, he will discover twists and turns along his path that will shatter Rapture and his sanity, questioning the morals of Rapture and those who have lived long enough to witness the catastrophic pivot in the underwater city.

MPAA: Rated R for strong brutal violence and gore throughout, menacing and disturbing images, language, drug content, and sexual content including references.

My Ideas/Changes:

- The movie would be 167 minutes, allowing for character development and a brief backstory behind Rapture and the post-term effects.
- I would leave out the parts where Jack is given the choice as to whether or not he rescues the little sisters to avoid following the "Good or Bad" ending, and rather look at his sanity increasing or decreasing to determine whether he is desperate for ADAM or just wants to rescue the Little Sisters to bring some humanity to the doomed city.
- Less jump scares, more tension-building and adding a bit of a claustrophobic atmosphere.
- Have ambiguity throughout, such as whether or not Sander Cohen dies or if Jack chooses having control of Rapture over saving the Little Sisters and escaping the underworld of insanity.
- I wouldn't make Jack too powerful like the video games, but powerful enough for the protagonist to handle himself without the overuse of superpowers.
