Formerly Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe might star in an upcoming biopic that centers on the creator of the mega violent, morally wrong video game series Grand Theft Auto. I think the idea seems kind of insane but who knows what the script could really look like when it is developed. Could we see some really in-humane killing, prostitutes, etc, etc.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Radcliffe is actually in negotiations to star in a film called Grand Theft Auto, about British video game legend, Sam Houser.

Houser co-founded the New York-based Rockstar Games and became an essential creative mind behind the wildly successful Grand Theft Auto series, as well as many other super violent titles such as the western-based thriller of the Red Dead series, the movie-inspiring Max Payne games, and Manhunt.

This would no-doubt be an intriguing role for Daniel Radcliffe as he continues his efforts to get away from his post-Potter portfolio by taking a wide array of roles. This would definitely be to avoid the Hollywood suction of being put into a single character only actor. This role will certainly be more reality-grounded than Radcliffe’s last film role in Victor Frankenstein, where he played Igor, the mad scientist's assistant. The Grand Theft Auto project has yet to lock-down production plans or a release date.
