A group of Grand Theft Auto 5 players have used Rockstar's open-world multiplayer playground as the means to stage a virtual remake of Terminator 2: Judgment Day's famous car chase.

Led by YouTuber John Chapman, the project is an almost shot-for-shot replica of James Cameron's original, though some close-ups had to be omitted due to the way the game's wide-angle camera is set up.

"It mostly took a lot of time because I wanted to try to make it exact," said Chapman on his YouTube channel. "Yes I may have missed some small scenes but damn we worked hard on this from the actual setting up, to the directing, to the editing."

You can even see some of the behind-the-scenes work in a blooper reel towards the end.

Despite taking a huge effort to assemble, Chapman and co. are planning to do this again with other movie scenes. "We are 100 per cent interested in the requests you have for remake ideas," Chapman wrote.

Personally, I'd love to see this team take on the opening scene in Drive. What would you like to see remade in this fashion?

For comparison, here's the original scene.
