Daniel Radcliffe stars in trailer for BBC’s GTA censorship drama, The Gamechangers – watch


Daniel Radcliffe starts a gaming revolution in the trailer for BBC Two’s forthcoming drama, The Gamechangers.

The Harry Potter star plays English Rockstar president, Sam Houser in this 90-minute TV movie about the heated transatlantic court battles regarding the game developer’s vulgar, yet extremely popular series, Grand Theft Auto. 


The TV movie centres on the moral controversy surrounding Grand Theft Auto.

Bill Paxton also stars as Jack Thompson – the Miami lawyer who fought for the game to be censored.

The project – which was shot in South Africa by Black Mirror/Misfits director, Owen Harris – is part of the BBC’s Make It Digital initiative; a scheme created to inspire younger generations to get involved with coding and programming.

The show hasn’t come without controversy however, as GTA writer Steve Hammond expressed concerns that nobody at the BBC had approached members of the original development team about the story. Rockstar even filed a lawsuit against the corporation back in May 2015.

Nevertheless, The Gamechangers is set to air on BBC Two at 9pm on Tuesday 15th September. Watch the trailer below.
