"GTA 5" mother company Take-Two is believed to move into the movie venture soon. The rumors came following the announcement of CEO Strauss Zelnick that the company has licensed a couple of titles for a motion picture production.

"GTA 5" Distributor Will Not Invest In Movies And TV

The "GTA 5"  distributor also revealed that the company will not produce the films. However, Take-Two has licensed other companies in order to keep the creative control. The company further noted that the track record of the conversion of video game IP to the movies is spotty at best, although it is still unknown which IPs have been licensed.

Aside from "GTA 5", Take-Two is also reported to own other Rockstar titles such as "Red Dead Redemption" and 2K titles like "Bioshock" and "Borderlands." It should be noted as well that Take-Two has mentioned about the risk of adapting a game into a film back in 2013.

"GTA 5" distributor, meanwhile, published recently its financial output for the quarter ending Dec. 31. Based on the results, it revealed that "GTA 5" was able to ship 75 million copies, GameSpot reported.
