    I think he would be the guy to do it, but I don't think GTA has that great of a story, letalone one that is interesting enough to fit into a coherent movie that is anything more than something "just for the fans." I'd rather see an original idea in a similar style.

    They are making a movie of The Getaway, which is pretty much GTA only MUCH more realistic and a way better story (from what I hear/read).

    Of course, if Quentin Tarantino were to make a movie of GTA, it would probably come out 5 years from the time he started filming and the DVD would feature him doing commentary for only 5 minutes.

    Sincerely,

    Yep, that sounds about right to me. In fact the game sorta resembles 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Resevoir Dogs'.

    If they were to make a movie about it, i would only hope that Ray liotta would play the lead. That would make it to perfect

    I just love that Ron Howard did a commentary and contributed to a "25th Anniversery DVD" of Grand Theft Auto. Wouldn't see Coppola doing that. [​IMG]

    (Of course, Howard also cast Roger Corman in Apollo 13 and appeared in The Independant. The guy can be unexpectedly cool)
