Sam Houser Movie

Rockstar Games co-founder and president Sam Houser has long been using movies as fodder for his games — the Grand Theft Auto series, for which he has served as chief creative force for many years, is saturated with film influences. Now Houser, who generally shies away from the spotlight, will be the subject of a film.

Daniel Radcliffe is in talks to play Houser in Grand Theft Auto, which will chronicle one particularly odd period in the game designers life, when Rockstar came under attack from Florida lawyer Jack Thompson. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Animals trailer

You definitely know actor David Dastmalchian from ominous turns in films such as Prisoners and The Dark Knight, but he gets to explore much different territory in Animals. The film won the Special Jury Prize for Courage in Storytelling at SXSW in 2014, which has got to be pretty good for Dastmalcian, as he scripted the film in addition to starring in it.

Directed by Collin Schiffli, Animals features Dastmalchian as a guy who, with his partner Bobbie (played by Kim Shaw) deals with homelessness and addiction while carving out a tiny life in Chicago. Oscilloscope Laboratories will release the film later this season, and you can see the Animals trailer and poster below.
