GTA Movie?

With multiple games receiving movie adaptations such as Assassins Creed and World of Warcraft, it is no surprise that people may have though that their beloved open world game, Grand Theft Auto may also receive one, however it seems that this is currently not on the table.

In an interview with Gamespot, Take-Two CEO, Strauss Zelnick, said

“No plans for a [GTA] movie,”

“We haven’t actually taken any of our titles and turned them into motion pictures for a reason. Because we don’t finance motion pictures, it’s not a great business. We have conversations about licensing all the time. The problem is the economics around the licensing are swamped by our economics in our core business. So the risk of having someone else make a movie that’s not up to par creatively isn’t offset by the potential reward.”

Sadly it seems that we will not be getting a GTA movie until its actually financially viable. Even if a GTA Movie were to be made, what storyline would it follow? Would it be new or one we have already seen in a game? Tell us what you think in the comments.
