NEWSBy Ray Ampoloquio November 17, 2022Rockstar Games reportedly said no to an Eminem-led GTA film
As it turns out, Rockstar Games could've had a live-action film based on GTA with Eminem as the lead.
For some reason, the long-time developers of the best-selling video game franchise declined to do it.
Sam Houser reportedly turned down a $5 million offer to have Tony Scott come in and direct a film starring Eminem based on Grand Theft Auto just after Grand Theft Auto III came out
At the time, Eminem was fresh off a Best Rap Album Best Rap Solo Performance win at the 2001 GRAMMYs after releasing The Marshall Mathers LP a year earlier.
Eminem then later debuted in his first Hollywood film a year later with 8 Mile.
The GTA franchise has gone on to become very successful in the decades since GTA III came out.
