Rumors: Daniel Radcliffe to Star in Grand Theft Auto Movie

No, it’s not a spelling mistake, we truly meant "movie". There’s one of those in the making. Sure, but what is it about? It has something to do with a true-life account of a fight between the creator of Grand Theft Auto and a Miami lawyer who wanted to ban video game violence. The shooting of the first scenes should kick off on April 20, so everybody has been quite curious to see who takes the leading role.

Why Daniel Radcliffe? Well, it probably has something to do with the young actor’s long relationship with UK’s national broadcasting corporation.

Famous for playing Harry Potter, Daniel made his acting debut at the age of 10 in BBC One’s 1999 television film David Copperfield, followed by his cinematic debut in 2001’s The Tailor of Panama. He was 11-years-old when he was cast as the young wizard, a role he played for ten years, until the release of the eighth and final film in 2011.

The teen wizard now seems to be all grown up considering that BBC’s producers are considering him for the Grand Theft Auto movie.

Yeah, but is he really capable of racing sportscars like crazy? No, the film is not really about that. In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, rising British director Owen Harris, who directed episodes of Britain’s Misfits and Black Mirror is the one wrapping the drama.

So, no racing, smashing and car chasing? Nope, sorry.

Instead, Radcliffe will play Sam Houser, the co-founder and president of Rockstar Games, the company that created one of the most popular games currently available. The same company is behind Max Payne and Red Dead, as well.

So no racing, smashing and car chasing? Nope, sorry.
