Courtnee Draper Interested in Portraying Elizabeth in BioShock Movie
However, Courtnee Draper, the voice of BioShock Infinite’s Elizabeth, has stated that should the possibility of a BioShock film resurface, she would be up for reprising the role of the dimension jumping heroine.
“Are you kidding me?! Yes!” said Draper when speaking with IGN.
“Hopefully it doesnâ€™t take 20 years and then Iâ€™m too old, and could only play Old Elizabeth, but I think that would be so phenomenal. Itâ€™s something Iâ€™ve been talking to Ken about too because Iâ€™m excited for it, Iâ€™d be really excited to see that come to life on the big screen.”
The fact that Draper and Levine have spoken about a film adaptation implies that despite the cancellation of the original BioShockÂ film, the possibility of another remains.
Draper also commented on the recent downsizing of BioShockÂ developer Irrational Games.
“I didnâ€™t know it was happening until he released it and I saw the same letter everyone else did on Irrationalâ€™s website,” she said. “Iâ€™m excited to see what he does with it, and I think all the people at Irrational are incredibly talented and theyâ€™re being picked up on other games and franchises, so itâ€™s exciting to see what he does next.”
Draper will appear as Elizabeth one more time in the last DLC for BioShock Infinite , Burial at Sea Episode Two , slated for release on March 25th.
