    It would seem as though, for a while, Rockstar Games was planning on putting out a Grand Theft Auto movie. Rockstar and Take-Two wrote up a script and sent their finest men to pitch their idea out to major studios everywhere. One particular studio almost bought the idea, and everyone inside Take-Two was talking about the Grand Theft Auto movie like they were about to begin casting. Unfortunately, Take-Two and the aforementioned studio were unable to come to proper terms, and the movie is a lost dream.

    Fortunately, thanks to "new management" over at Take-Two, we may yet be able to see a Grand Theft Auto movie. Until then, all we can do is wonder how awesome it would have been to see rapper Eminem spinning rhymes while popping caps in his low-rider.

    you could pick any of the 3d games as a good basis for a script, Lionsgate would be a good studio to make this film.

    Going by the history of games being made into films i think we should all breath a sigh of relief!

    Sounds pretty dreadful if you ask me, but then I dislike eminem immensely. Not to mention the film 'gone in 60 seconds' is a pretty good approximation of the whole genre. Taxi as well to some extent (not so much the queen latifah remake, the original french version)

    The games themselves suck, but I bet the movie would be bad ass with M&M

    No way! If they make a GTA movie, it has to be in Vice City with Ray Liotta as Tommy Vercetti. :D
