Take-Two has revealed why there hasn’t been a Grand Theft Auto movie or TV series yet, and why there probably won’t ever be.
In a recent interview with TheWrap, Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick discussed why the game publisher hasn’t put GTA onto the big screen.
“Part of it is, if we were to do something like that, we’d want to have complete creative control to make sure we expressed
in the way we wanted - and that would mean we’d need to finance that motion picture,” Zelnick said.
He then clarified that funding a movie or any other form of on-screen adaptation isn’t the issue, it’s that “we don’t have the corporate expertise to do it, because only a handful of people inside Take-Two have ever worked in that business.”
