Wentworth on Bioshock?

05.29.2009

Last month we heard that Gore Verbinski's adaption of the fantastic videogame BIOSHOCK might be on hold while the studio considered ways to lower the project's inflating cost.

It seems like husky-voiced "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller either doesn't know that, doesn't care, or knows something we don't. He apparently wrote on his Twitter page: "Prison Break may be ending, but I've got things in the works. Hint... one word: Bioshock."

BIOSHOCK is set in the 1960s and follows a man whose plane crashes near the underwater art-deco city called Rapture, built by a wealthy businessman as a sanctuary for brilliant scientists and artists before descending into chaos. Could the simmering Miller be up for a role as our mysterious hero Jack, Rapture founder Andrew Ryan, or maybe manipulative adversary Frank Fontaine?

Or is it... none of the above? See... since the initial post, the Twitter account of "Wentworth Miller" has been suspended "due to strange activity" (Moviehole got screenshots first). Was it taken down by Universal or the actor's representatives for spilling news too early? Or is it yet another case of false identity on Twitter?

Until we can get further clairification or official statement, and given the proliferation of fake fame on Twitter, we should probably assume it's bullshit, but feel free to fire off opinion below.

Extra Tidbit: Miller voiced the psychotic A.I. plane in STEALTH.

I hate to be THAT guy...

...but can you please be more aware of spoilers in your post. Fontaine's involvement in the plot of Bioshock is one of many great twists in the game and even though the games been available for a long time I'm sure there are people out there who havent played it. Its only really because Bioshocks story is one of the best stories told in a video game so it would just be a shame for a newcomer to have that spoiled for them.

I know I avoided the outcome of this game like mad until I played

I know I avoided the outcome of this game like mad until I played it, and I'm happy I did because it really felt like I was playing this awesome immersive movie.

Would be cool, but he is probably just talking about a voice-over for Bioshock 2.

I think it could just mean he's doing voice-over work for Bioshock 2.
