Casting Call: Grand Theft Auto

by Dan Ryckert on Jun 01, 2012 at 06:53 AM

We've seen plenty of gaming properties turn into movies over the years, most with disappointing results. There have been rumblings of a GTA movie in the past, such as that time Rockstar had to shoot down Variety's report about Eminem starring in one. If Rockstar does eventually come around to the idea, however, I'm bringing Casting Call back to give them a helping hand.

If you're familiar with our previous Casting Calls for Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, Uncharted, and Devil May Cry, you're used to this mix of legitimately good ideas and patently stupid ones. Also, imagine that this hypothetical film incorporates major characters from every game from GTA III forward. Don't think too hard about it, as it's mostly just me finding pictures that kinda look like other pictures.
