GTA Movie Details
There is a new GTA Movie that BBC is working on, tentatively titled "Game Changer." This is likely to be a 90-minute factual drama that will be screened on BBC Two.
According to the BBC, the movie will feature Daniel Radcliffe and Bill Paxton. It will concentrate on the controversy that surrounds the game and its successful coding story. Daniel Radcliffe will play Sam Houser and Bill Paxton will play Jack Thompson. Sam Houser is the co-creator of the gaming series and Jack Thompson is the lawyer who had earlier campaigned to stop the rise of GTA game.
"Game Changer (w/t) tells the story of an extraordinary chapter in the history of this iconic game, and reveals the major impact it has had on our cultural landscape," said the official post.
Though the game has been one of the fastest selling products in history, many activists, politicians and parents have called for a ban on the game; they worry it encourages violence among kids.
The game will be directed by Owen Harris ("Kill Your Friends", "Black Mirror", "Misfits"). James Wood ("Ambassadors") will be penning it and Jim Spencer ("All Stars", "Monsters") will be the producer.
Rockstar Replies on Hacks
Responding to reports that the Social Club in GTA 5 has been hacked, Rockstar has assured players it has not been compromised as believed earlier.
The issue arose after a small group of gamers were locked out of Rockstar Social Club accounts.
Rockstar said in a statement to Kotaku: "As confirmed yesterday, the Rockstar Games Social Club has not been compromised. However, it appears that attempts have been made to access user accounts using email and password combinations from an unaffiliated, compromised website or database elsewhere on the internet. For the accounts affected, we are in the process of reverting those accounts back to their original owners. As a reminder, it is a good policy to ensure that the Rockstar Games Social Club account username and password is not shared across multiple websites on the internet."
