The film, which is described as "a true-life account of a fight between the creator of Grand Theft Auto and a Miami lawyer who wanted to ban video game violence," would cast Radcliffe as Sam Houser, the president and co-founder of the video game company Rockstar Games.
Owen Harris will direct. The film, which is based on David Kushner's book "Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto," features a screenplay by James Wood.
Shooting is expected to begin April 20. Jim Spencer will produce with Mark Hedgecoe as executive producer.
