Seeing as this is a GTA Forum, we're all familiar with the GTA universe to some degree, right? What if, in all hypothetical sense, Rockstar came up with the idea (or someone approached Rockstar with the idea) to make a live-action movie set in the GTA universe. It probably wouldn't be a movie based on GTA to the strictest sense, but nevertheless, it would be interesting to see what kind of movie Rockstar could make with the GTA Universe. I can only imagine a movie similar to "New Kids Turbo" set in Carcer City, being filmed in Rust Belt cities like Cumberland, Pittsburgh, etc. but then again, that's just me. I'm interested in seeing what you guys think, though!

How would it be different to any other contemporary crime or action movie?
I think a movie based on the GTA2 or 3 story was rumoured like 10 years ago, but was never picked up. The GTA universe itself is realistic enough not to bother with anyway.

The writers at Rockstar are talented but I hope a GTA movie never gets made. I doesn't need to be made and I wouldn't trust the movie industry with it anyway. If I want to watch a GTA story and I watch a walkthrough.

Maybe it doesn't have to be a GTA movie, but it could be set in the GTA universe, like, what if Rockstar made a Manhunt movie? It could be a movie set in the GTA universe, like for example, the cars and billboards have GTA branding on them rather than real-life stuff.

But what is the point? R* is trying to recreate real world in their games, so setting movie in their world wouldn't change much. Couple of different names is all you would get. Not worth it.

how would it NOT work?
it would be a fairly typical action movie.

I mean, you could basically consider the Die Hard franchise with Bruce Willis to be like unofficial GTA movies and it would make perfect sense.
small-time vigilante uncovers massive criminal plot then proceeds to blow up half the city while taking down the bad guys. sometimes he even clashes with the police. there's car jacking, stunt jumps, car chases, shootouts, explosions, etc etc.

a GTA movie would totally work because it's basically been done a hundred times before tounge2.gif

The Houser brothers themselves said that they won't make a GTA movie because it will just look like any other gangster movies out there.

But, I really like to see one. But I can't pick the style. I was thinking that it should be over-the-top like San Andreas just to be different from the gangster movies of 80s-90s, but it will be sh*t. A GTA film more inclined to IV will be great too. If they would make a Vice City like movie, it will just be Scarface. In a fictional Miami.

The thing I'm looking forward to a GTA film is how they will make the set-up for a fictional city. Or, will they use fictional cities at all? I also like to see how will they do the cars.

Drive is the closest thing to a GTA movie.
Appreciate it.

This. After seeing Drive I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have to see a GTA movie. But if they did it should be similar to Quentin Tarantino's 90's work like Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown.

Hmm, I still don't want a real life GTA universe, personally. If they do make a movie it should be something unrelated to their previous games.

There are many films that can resemble the GTA. I remember watching a 1970's film called Across 110th Street, set in New York City (it's about some guys who rob a mafia local and the consequences it has; shootouts in the roofs of these old NYC buildings and a lot of violence) and right after telling to a friend that I think I knew were Rockstar took inspiration to make GTA IV.

Making a movie would just spoil the series.

I don't think they should make a movie, but if did it could be a really good crime movie
