If there were any doubts regarding a movie iteration of the best-selling video game series, Grand Theft Auto, it can be all gone now. Rockstar vice president Dan Houser talked with the Los Angeles Times, and quickly shot down any rumors of a movie currently in the works.

“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,” Houser said. “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.

Houser than went on to say:

“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.

We here at PlayStation LifeStyle are certainly glad that Rockstar is going to the big screen, like a number of iconic video game series are nowadays. Is this a good movie, on Rockstar’s part? Post your thoughts and feelings in the comments section.
