"'No,' says the man in Hollywood, 'It needs a smaller budget.'
'No,' says the man in marketing, 'It needs wider-appeal.'
'No,' says the man at the MPAA, 'It needs to be PG-13.'
I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... rated R."
The recent acquisition of several [BioShock](movie:579407) -movie-related domain names by Sony Pictures has led many to conclude a film-adaptation of the critically and commercially successful video game franchise must be in the works. Honestly, a name like 'bioshock-movie.com,' is either promoting a video game adaptation or a laxative infomercial.
"Instead I chose... Rapture."
That being said the question on every fan's mind seems to be: "Will it be rated R?"
While we'll have to wait for further developments before we get a solid answer, and Hollywood's track record is certainly indicative of a "PG-13," imgur.com user Susassin has seen fit to sate your thirst for Rapture until then by creating a far-too-real depiction of what one of Rapture's splicers would look like in real life. Needless to say, this image is NSFW.
Susassin says he or she repurposed a silicone zombie victim head and a Neca Splicer mask to recreate the iconic face, and I have to admit, that looks just like one of the most common splicers I saw in the video game. Admittedly, I'm not sure if this is more representative of before or after it got up close and personal with my wrench, though.
What do you guys think? Is this the perfect embodiment of all your sadistic gene-splicing dreams come true? Do you think an R-rated Bioshock film could work and succeed? If so, is this how you envisioned the splicers? More importantly, is it far too late for that laxative infomercial?
