Veteran director Gore Verbinski, who is best known for movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lone Ranger, has recently talked about his upcoming movie and why the movie Bioshock, which he was supposed to direct, never took off. 

Gore’s latest film is going to be “A Cure for Wellness”. The film is a supernatural horror film. It also happens to be a genre Gore is fond of. Gore’s earlier horror film, “The Ring”, has been voted as one of the scariest films by audiences. 

Gore has said that he is very excited to once again be doing his favorite genre. The movie is scheduled to be released on 23rd September, 2016. 

Sources claim that Gore has also talked about why the Bio-shock movie never took off. Bio-shock, which has one of the highest fan bases in contemporary video games, was a highly anticipated movie. Fans were very disappointed when the project was eventually cancelled. 

Insiders at the studio producing the film have said that Gore did not want to do the film as he was not receiving sufficient funds for the film. He also wanted the film to be R rated and needed somewhere around $200 million for the movie. But, the studios were willing to provide only $80million. 

Gore has said that he was not interested in pursuing a PG-13 version of the film because he felt that the R rating was inherent to the game. He has said that he wanted to make a movie which would make people shiver days after they have watched it. He also felt that the movie should be shot in 3D. But, the studio at that time was against the idea, so the project was bunked. 

Gore, as a professional film maker, is one of the most successful filmmakers in Hollywood today. His films have grossed more than $3.5 billion. His most famous movies are “Pirates of the Caribbean series”, “Rango” and “The Lone Ranger”. 

His movie so far have been nominated for the academy award fourteen times in total and has managed to secure two awards. Gore began filmmaking exactly twenty years ago. His earlier movies were mostly horror thrillers. 

He was, at that time, known for “The Ritual” and “The Ring”. He is currently working on “Light House: A trifle” for which the production is yet to begin. He simultaneously will begin filming for another of his movie titled ”Butterfly”, which will be starring Steve Carell. 

Gore, begin one of the most successful directors in Hollywood, has a total net worth of over $170 Million. However, he has time and again said that he does not like to indulge himself in the fancies of life. He leads a simple life with his wife and two children at their home in Los Angeles, Hollywood.
