Daniel Radcliffe to Star in "Grand Theft Auto"

Daniel Radcliffe to Star in "Grand Theft Auto"Submit Comment
Daniel Radcliffe is in talks to star in "Grand Theft Auto," a true-life story about a fight between the creator of "Grand Theft Auto" and a Miami lawyer who wanted to ban video game violence.

Radcliffe will play Sam Houser, the British co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, the company behind "Grand Theft Auto" as well as games such as "Max Payne" and "Red Dead." He is credited in making "Grand Theft Auto" into one of the video game world's biggest franchises.

In the first decade of the 21st century, Houser and Rockstar Games came under repeated attacks from activist attorney Jack Thompson. Thompson was an unorthodox Florida attorney who was already attacking media companies for pushing rap and sex onto the airwaves when he turned his attention to what he saw as an obsession of glorifying violence in the video game industry. "Grand Theft Auto" was one of his favorite targets. He was disbarred in 2008 for inappropriate behavior.

The part of Thompson has not been cast yet. The new film will be directed by Owen Harris ("Black Mirror"). The plan is to begin shooting on April 20th.

Someone should kidnap Radcliffe and make a movie about it called Grand Theft Faggot.

Hate that chick.

I met the other British co-founder at a games conference in Dundee years ago, really nice guy; Dave Jones & the head programer on Lemmings & GTA; Russell Key.
