No gta movie boo hoo
I wouldn't want a gta movie in the first place. Interesting statement by Houser.
Also, if they DID do one faithfully, that style of reality would be a bit weird to see in live action. It'd come across like a full spoof, rather than a satire.
It's also weird to put a story the size of a GTA game (easily 10+ hours) into 1.5 hour.
A series would be more logical.
But let's just stick to gaming.
What I would find interesting is whether or not they set it in a real-life city or a fictional one. The series has so much charm because of the fictional locations, I just can't imagine them filming in New York and then telling us it's Liberty City sans satire. Something about that doesn't sit right with me.
It would be too difficult to do a GTA movie, at least one that resembles the game.
It would look like a comedy spoof of an action movie because you clearly cant get away with the things you do in the game, not even on a movie level.
That dramatic moment when the main character is gunned down by a legion of cops (with somber music playing for effect).
That hilarious moment when he wakes up in a hospital and GTA noobs are all "WTF?"
Too late, Houser.
Joking aside, I wouldn't want one either.
Video games are a "5 dimensional" medium. That is, space, time possibilities.
Possibilities are literally what makes GTA worthwhile. There's an entire immersive world where you cannot pay attention to any one thing at once.
Movies can't capture that. And GTA's writing isn't fit for what movies try to get across. IDK
