Daniel Radcliffe Invents Grand Theft Auto in 'Gamechangers' Trailer

4 September 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just five months after we reported Daniel Radcliffe was circling the Grand Theft Auto legal drama The Gamechangers, the first trailer has surfaced on YouTube channel NewTrailersBuzz. The TV movie is slated to debut September 15 on the UK network BBC 2, but it isn't clear when it may debut in the U.S. This project will give fans of the beloved Grand Theft Auto video game series new insight into the legal trouble that Rockstar Games founder, Sam Houser (Daniel Radcliffe) found himself in.

The story is set in 2002, centering on Houser's legal battles with a Florida lawyer named Jack Thompson (Bill Paxton), who embarked on a crusade against the violence and profanity found in the video game series. The attorney had already made headlines before, attacking media companies for glorifying rap music and putting violent content on television. He was eventually disbarred in 2008 for inappropriate behavior.
