Jack Black would like to see GTA and Red Dead Redemption adaptations

27 March 2024

The last few years can rightfully be considered the golden age of game adaptations. We've seen movies based on Mortal Kombat, The Last of Us, Mario Super Bros., and Twisted Metal, with a Borderlands adaptation also set to release this summer. Actor Jack Black, who plays the robot Claptrap in the upcoming action movie, recently shared in an interview that he would like to see films inspired by Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.

«I can't believe they haven't already started making a movie of any of the Rockstar Games – Grand Theft Auto, but especially Red Dead Redemption. Those things are already like movies, you know? I guess that's the thing. Some video games are already halfway there to telling those kind of stories, and there are some movies that are like video games,» Jack Black noted.

In the future, the actor believes, we will see even more works where cinema and games are merged into one. «Did you ever see that Black Mirror motion picture called 'Bandersnatch' where you actually choose your own adventure at the end of scenes? It's like, 'Ooh, do you take the red pill or the blue pill?' I think we're moving in that way where there's going to be more combinations of video games and movies, and it's exciting. It's like the beginning of a new era.»

Previously, Kotaku had reported that GTA 6 might be delayed until 2026 due to development difficulties. Fortunately, reliable insiders have already debunked this news.
