In an interview with the Los Angeles Times about his video game production company Blind Wink, “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gore Verbinski elaborated further on the recent news that the BioShock movie was halted in the middle of pre-production.
“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.”
