Daniel Radcliffe Eyes Lead in ‘Grand Theft Auto’

Daniel Radcliffe is reportedly in negotiations to star in ‘Grand Theft Auto’ (GTA), an upcoming film centered on the hugely popular video game and its creator.
The 90-minute drama, produced by BBC Films, is based on the 2012 non-fiction novel by David Kushner ‘Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto’. It will chronicle the real-life story of the battle between the game creator Sam Houser and the now-disbarred Miami lawyer, Jack Thompson, who spent years fighting against what he argued were unacceptable levels of violence in video games.
Radcliffe will play Houser, the British president and co-founder of Rockstar Games, the company behind hugely successful games, such as ‘GTA’, ‘Max Payne’, and ‘Red Dead’. Houser is widely credited for helping transform ‘GTA’ into one of the biggest video game franchises of all time, although he was also known to amp up the violence factor in the series, Hollywood Reporter wrote.
Should he close a deal, the film would mark the latest unexpected role for Radcliffe following the end of the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise in 2011. The actor has clearly been looking to distance himself from his most famous role in recent years, showing off his versatility with a series of wide-ranging film choices.
