內部人士稱GTA:Rockstar拒絕Eminem電影交易

柯克的遊戲《緊急狀態》是由Rockstar發行的,他說在《GTA 3》風靡全球時,Housers就一直在談論電影合作的問題。

2001年在Playstation 2上發布的這一開創性的標題為該系列的其他作品和後來的模仿者奠定了基礎。

他還剛剛完成了他在《8英里》(8 Mile)中的主演角色的拍攝,這是一部半傳記電影,鬆散地基於他早期進入說唱的步驟。

柯克告訴播客,他跟蹤薩姆-豪澤到一家酒店,兩人在那裡熬夜討論拍攝GTA電影的可能性。

"我認為在那個時候,山姆仍然認為這可能是他想做的事情,"柯克說。

柯克回憶說。他說:"柯克,我們有阿姆主演,這是一部托尼-斯科特的電影--500萬美元的價格。你有興趣嗎?

"我打電話給薩姆,我說'聽着。他們希望阿姆出演《俠盜獵車手》電影,托尼-斯科特擔任導演。

據柯克所知,這是兩兄弟最後一次討論《俠盜獵車手》進入銀幕的問題。

"他們意識到,他們擁有的媒體特許經營權比當時正在進行的任何電影都要大,"柯克說。

GTA已經成為一個文化巨無霸,並在2018年被宣布為有史以來最賺錢的娛樂產品。

該工作室今年終於證實,《GTA VI》正在開發中--而且搖滾明星建議玩家在2024年或2025年之前就能玩到它。


Kirk, whose game State of Emergency was released by Rockstar, says the Housers had been talking about a movie tie-in around the time GTA 3 took the world by storm.

Released in 2001 on Playstation 2, the pioneering title laid the groundwork for the rest of the series and the imitators that would follow.

He had also just wrapped shooting on his starring role in 8 Mile - a semi-biographical film loosely based on his early steps into rap.

Kirk tells the podcast he tracked Sam Houser to a hotel, where the two stayed up late to discuss the possibility of making a GTA movie.

"I think at that point it was still in Sam's mind that it might be something that he wanted to do," Kirk says.

Kirk recalls: "He said 'Kirk we've got Eminem to star, and it's a Tony Scott film - $5m on the nose. Are you interested?'

"And I phoned up Sam and I said 'Listen to this. They want Eminem in the Grand Theft Auto movie and Tony Scott to direct'.

And that is the last time, as far as Kirk is aware, that either brother discussed GTA coming to the silver screen.

"They realised that the media franchise that they had was bigger than any movie that was going on at the time," Kirk says.

GTA has gone on to become a cultural juggernaut and in 2018 was declared the most profitable entertainment product of all time.

The studio finally confirmed this year that GTA VI was in development - and Rockstar's suggested gamers could be playing it by 2024 or 2025.
