Logan, Blade Runner 2049 and Death on the Nile scribe Michael Green is writing the screenplay.

Green also penned Slumberland, a Netflix film set to premiere Nov. 18. It stars Jason Momoa.

No casting for BioShock has been announced yet.

"Set across multiple dystopian and visionary landscapes gone wrong, the series blends sci-fi and horror to pose unique existential and societal questions that reshaped how game stories could be told -- all amidst pulse-pounding action gameplay that rewards sharp shooting, clever planning, and lethal improvisation," a synopsis from the streaming service said.
