Damn the economy. After learning in April that “Bioshock” was put on hold due to financial crunches at Universal we’re now hearing from director Gore Verbinski that he might not even be able to helm the flick:

“The bottom line is it has to shoot out of the States for budget reasons and my schedule may be prohibitive,” said Verbinski. “There’s a great script and a really interesting cast. It really comes down to the financial model now. Big movies are just not being shot in the States. I’m weighing whether I can physically go the U.K. or Australia or one of those other places with a tax rebate for a year-and-a-half.”

Maybe we’ll start nationalizing the movie studios too and then we can have all the movies we want. Movies and Chevys for everyone!
