Rockstar: No plans to make movies based on Grand Theft Auto

Rockstar does not plan on turning the Grand Theft Auto series into a movie franchise any time soon.

As a matter of fact, vice president Dan Houser says the prospect of one considered, and then quickly tossed aside.

“We don’t believe that the Grand Theft Auto games, which are massive in scope and structurally complex, can be adequately compressed into a two-hour movie,” he told the LA Times. “It seems obvious to us that maintaining the long-term integrity of any entertainment property has been dependent on not making substandard spin-off products to people whose primary interest is making a quick buck.

“If we ever decide to do a film, it will be because we have resolved our creative doubts, and while retaining enough control to ensure that if the movie is terrible, at least we will know we ruined the property ourselves.
