Just found out from over the webz that Rockstar refused to sell Fox the rights for a GTA movie starring Eminem. While for some of you this might be dissapointing at first, what really troubled me was the reason for the refusal: it seems like Fox didn't paid enough money. Would that mean that Rockstar can ultimally be bought with a "fair price", no matter who makes the movie, or how? In my opinion, a GTA movie should avoid becoming "the blockbuster ASAP" type, filled with special effects and notorious superstars. It has to become a cult movie, (maybe) low budget and no-name actors and such. The intro for GTA2 is just awesome, and it would stand as a good example!

So, what do you think? Can Holywood do it, or would it trash it? Is it good, or is it bad that the chance was "killed"?

We don't have a general GTA section, this is as good a place as any amongst the GTA section. Entertainment makes more sense, though.

well, asking things in the right section is most difficult for me sometimes in any forum, hopefully this is not a reason to get someone banned, since it can be corrected by a moderator with just a few clicks tongue.gif

plus: the success of a gta movie shouldn't be about holywood stars, but about the theme, the script, and the filming technique. i remember el mariachi, for example, which is quite praised (and which i didn't see!) for being made with... dunno... 7000$? the plot is quite GTAish (his gf is being killed, i guess?, and he is going on a killing-trip after all the bad guys?), and it was the start for antonio banderas (which means he was still a no-name!). so... yeah... i guess this prooves a point? at least that's the gta movie i would make... if i'd be a director tongue.gif
