Take-Two registers Rockstar Films
For GTA, Red Dead Redemption movies?
Take-Two has registered a trademark for Rockstar Films, suggesting movies based on Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption may be in the works.
And L.A. Noire?
Rockstar Films was registered as a trademark on 21st December 2010 for:
"Animated motion picture films featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes; pre-recorded video discs and other pre-recorded digital and electronic media in the field of live action programs, motion pictures, or animation featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes."
According to SystemLink Alt, which spotted the trademark, Take-Two owns URLs RockstarFilms.com and RockstarFilms.net.
In 2008 Rockstar denied reports it almost gave the go-ahead to a Grand Theft Auto film in 2009, saying the company was "not interested" in bringing the series to the big screen.
According to Variety, a deal to develop a GTA movie was "virtually in place with one of the six major studios". "Eminem was quite possibly going to star," apparently. The deal supposedly fell through at the last minute after Take-Two failed to agree terms with the studio.
