Here are my choices for who I’d like to see star in an adaptation of the video game, BioShock! Included are all of the main characters as well as all of the information you need to know to familiarise yourself with the world of Rapture…

THE PLOT

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"BioShock lets you do the impossible as you explore a mysterious underwater city. When your plane crashes, you discover Rapture - an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, you have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. As little girls loot the dead, and biologically mutated citizens ambush you at every turn. Now you’re trapped, caught in the middle of a genetic war that will challenge both your capacity to survive and your moral allegiance to your own humanity. Make meaningful and mature decisions that culminate in the grand question - do you exploit the innocent survivors of Rapture to save yourself - or risk all to become their saviour?"

FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BIOSHOCK

Big Daddy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Big Daddies are genetically-enhanced human beings who have had their skin and organs grafted into an enormous diving suit. The Big Daddy is the brainchild of Dr. Yi Suchong. Knowing that the Little Sisters would be at great risk if they were out on the streets gathering ADAM with no protection, Suchong sought to rectify the problem. The candidates were placed in large vats with a substance that effectively turns them into mindless drones and were given enhanced strength and agility. The suits also give them the ability to resist deep ocean pressure to a depth of six miles.

Little Sisters

Little Sisters are young girls appearing to be around seven years old who have been genetically altered and mentally conditioned to reclaim ADAM from the dead around Rapture. Little Sisters are almost always accompanied by a Big Daddy. They are completely immune to damage and have no offensive abilities. Attacking them, however, will incur the wrath of their protector. And like a run-of-the-mill Splicer, exposure to ADAM also drives the Little Sisters completely mad unless they are rescued.

ADAM & EVE

ADAM is the raw form of the unstable stem cells harvested and processed from a type of Sea Slug parasite and can be genetically manipulated to produce cells that would not normally be present in the human body. EVE is a modified version of ADAM which allows the use of Plasmids.

Plasmids

Plasmids are special serums made from processed ADAM that introduce special stem cells into the body, allowing for genetic modification and real time mutation, giving the user what some might call "super powers". Plasmids are powerful, but excessive use of them leads to physical and mental addiction, as well as insanity. This helped to bring about the downfall of Rapture.

Splicers

Due to abusive ADAM consumption, the remains of Rapture’s human population have had their bodies and minds deformed beyond repair and they have become dependent on the substance, both mentally and physically. They wander the corridors and the tunnels of Rapture searching for ADAM, usually in the form of Little Sisters, which often puts them at odds with their Big Daddy protectors—something which Jack can easily exploit to help him survive.

THE CHARACTERS

Wentworth Miller as Jack Ryan

Jack is the silent protagonist of BioShock. He is a young Caucasian male and prior to his unwilling arrival in Rapture, he was a passenger on an airplane that crashed near the lighthouse that provided entry to the underwater city.

Enemies

Viggo Mortensen as Andrew Ryan

Andrew Ryan is the father of Rapture, the undersea Utopia that is the setting for BioShock. He took his whole fortune and created the place at the bottom of the ocean. A place where "the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, where the great not be constrained by the small".

Other Characters/Flashbacks

Although there are probably hundreds of characters both heard and referred to in the collectable audio diaries that feature in the game, this obviously wouldn’t work in a movie adaptation so to further explore both the origins of Ryan and Atlas as well as Rapture itself, I’d like to see the following characters (who I believe are important to the back-story) feature in the movie during flashbacks.

Kristin Davis as Diane McClintock

After turning her back on Ryan after seeing the consequences of his ideals and the undoing of the city she once loved she overheard Fontaine planning his "con" as Atlas. He then murdered her in order to keep her quiet.
