Trailer Released for Daniel Radcliffe’s “The Gamechangers”
Radcliffe will play Sam Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games, the company responsible for the creation of the series and other games. Here’s a synopsis of the film:
In Autumn 2013, the game’s latest iteration – GTA: V – earned $1bn in just three days, becoming the fastest-selling entertainment product in history. But this drama goes back to 2002, to tell the story of a three-year period of intense controversy in the history of this iconic game’s development. It happened when two passionate men on either side of a high-stakes cultural divide clashed. This conflict, between the creative genius behind the game and a self-styled crusader for American morality, escalated into a fight for the hearts, minds and freedoms of an entire gaming generation. […] At the vanguard of this crusade is the formidable Christian lawyer Jack Thompson, a man determined to do whatever he can to stop the relentless rise of the game and its influence on children. The Gamechangers tells the story of how British game designers pushed boundaries into uncharted territory, of how those fighting GTA became consumed by a battle [that] overwhelmed their lives, and how the subsequent fallout threatened to bring down leading players on both sides.
