Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is a gaming masterpiece that captured the hearts and minds of players worldwide. From its dynamic storytelling to its immersive open-world gameplay, this title has become a landmark achievement in the gaming industry. Set in the neon-lit 1980s, players assume the role of Tommy Vercetti, a former mobster who must navigate the seedy underbelly of Vice City to complete missions and establish himself as a force to be reckoned with.
The game immediately became one of the most played video games in the world and developed a loyal fanbase over the years. Despite the success of the franchise, there haven’t been any moves to bring the game to the big screen. However, that is about to change.
It looks like 50 Cent may be the one to finally bring the Grand Theft Auto series to the big screen. Fif recently took to Instagram to hint at some sort of project with Rockstar. The rapper shared a logo of Vice City with a logo that teased that something big was in the works.
“I will explain this later, GLG GreenLight Gang this shit bigger than Power trust me. Boom #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi,” he wrote.
According to Deadline, 50 Cent is currently working on a new show with the working title “Vice City” for Paramount+. The show will be produced by G-Unit Film & Television, Lionsgate, and Paramount Television Productions. The show will include two Transformer: Rise Of The Beasts alumni Darnell Metayer and Josh Peters who will work as writers and executive producers while Chad Stahhelski who directed the John Wick franchise will also be an executive producer.
The story will take place in the mid-80s after three friends return home after being dishonorably discharged from the military due to their involvement in the Iran Contra scandal.
“The three friends partner with a mysterious Colombian immigrant, uniting their financial needs and criminal ambitions to form a heist crew. Fueled by the need for American green, they traverse a violent and dangerous path in pursuit of the American Dream,” the plot as per Deadline.
Fif took to Instagram to express his excitement at this new project.
“From the director of John Wick Chad Stahelski & ya Boy 50 VICE CITY 🔥GLG🚦💣BOOM💨I don’t miss.”
Fans of the video game series will be ecstatic to learn that their favorite gaming franchise will be coming to life on the big screen. Stay tuned to Thirsty For News as we bring you similar stories.
