Films That Should Be Made: Grand Theft Auto
The only way this could work as film if it's treated as a crime epic. In the same way we saw with previous films such as Scarface, Godfather, Miami Vice and Heat. While I'd like to think this would be something Michael Mann would be interested in picking up, he won't. One person who I think could do it justice is Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain). Aronofsky is someone who has the ability to bring out great characters within dark and disturbing themes.
My Casting Picks:
Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Eva Mendes (We Own The Night), Rosario Dawson (Kids), Alicia Witt (Dune), Meagan Good (Brick) and Monica Bellucci (Shoot Em Up).
Mads Mikkelsen (Pusher), Javier Bardem (Collateral), Clifton Colins Jr. (Tigerland), Michael K. Williams (The Road, Wire), John Ortiz (Miami Vice), Jason Clarke (Public Enemies), Sung Kang (Ninja Assassin) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Last Samurai, Sunshine).
