Rockstar Games pissed at Grand Theft Auto movie for falsehood

Sam-Houser-Rockstar

Things weren’t going to be pretty when BBC decided to produce The Gamechangers, a movie based on Rockstar Games creating Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas starring Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter series) and Bill Paxton (Aliens, True Lies).

The drama aired on BBC Two on Tuesday, and now after having watched it, Rockstar Games took to Twitter to bash the film.

Mike Dailly, who used to work at Rockstar as a programmer, also had negative things to say about the film, saying that there’s no truth to the story.

Rockstar has been against the movie since its production, and it has filed earlier this year a lawsuit on trademark infringement.
