Movies based on video games haven’t had much luck in Hollywood and it seems that Take-Two Interactive is looking to get into movie business but not directly, which might hint that a GTA movie might come out in future.

Speaking with MCVUK, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed that the company has licensed a couple of its video game IPs to be made into movies but he could not say anything more.

We have licensed a couple of titles for motion picture production and we don’t have much more to say about that yet.

He added that success of movies based on video games is very spotty at best and the company would not invest its own money into movies or TV shows based on their IPs.

We are open-minded. We are certainly not going to use our own balance sheet to invest in motion pictures and TV. If other people want to license them and we can retain creative control, we are open-minded. The track record of the conversion of video game IP to motion pictures is spotty at best.

While the Zelnick did not reveal which IPs the company has licensed but it is probable that a GTA movie might be coming as it is one of the most popular franchises for the company and many fans have been asking for a GTA movie for quite some time.

It seems that movies based on video games are trending again as this year we saw the release of Assassin’s Creed Movie. Also, Gears Of War movie, The Division Movie and more are in the works.

The Division movie will star Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain as lead characters. Gyllenhaal will not only star in The Division movie but he will also produce the movie himself.

What do you think the movies based on Take-Two Interactive IPs will be? Let us know in the comments.
