No movie coming from Grand Theft Auto
Despite the obvious cinematic potential, Rockstar have assured that they currently have no designs towards the creation of a Grand Theft Auto movie.
Rockstar boss-man Dan Houser reveals that just such a project has been discussed at the firm, but was eventually rejected.
"We don't believe that the Grand Theft Auto games, which are massive in scope and structurally complex, can be adequately compressed into a two-hour movie," Houser told the LA Times.
"It seems obvious to us that maintaining the long-term integrity of any entertainment property has been dependent on not making substandard spin-off products to people whose primary interest is making a quick buck.
"If we ever decide to do a film, it will be because we have resolved our creative doubts, and while retaining enough control to ensure that if the movie is terrible, at least we will know we ruined the property ourselves."
