Rockstar head Dan Houser has been quick to stamp on further talk of a GTA movie following yesterday’s Variety story, which claimed a filmed based on the giant gaming franchise almost came to fruition last year.

“Rockstar was not involved in this project in any way, shape or form,” said Houser, speaking to MTV. “Some movie producers were trying to put something together to entice us to make a movie, as studios and production teams frequently have done in the past. This proposal was no more interesting than the numerous others we receive. We never entertained proceeding with the project.”

The Variety report claimed the movie involved one of Hollywood’s “big six” studios and that Eminem was touted for lead. Guess we can put that one to rest, then.
