A GTA 6 Leak Claims The Game Is Inspired By These 2015 Movie Characters

The recent announcement by Rockstars that a new Grand Theft Auto trailer will be released in December has sent shock waves through the video game world. The rumor mills kicked into gear and dug up this old supposed leak mentioning that the Hollywood couple was involved in the game. Neither Gosling, nor Mendes, nor Rockstar Games have ever confirmed the rumor.

GTA fans have been patient

It's been ten years since the release of GTA 5. While GTA Online has kept players warm for all these years, fans have had to wait until the breaking point for a new Grand Theft Auto; remember that Rockstar has yet to mention if the next game will be titled GTA 6. Regardless, fans have been waiting patiently, and the news of a new game only came at the start of the last year, when Rockstar confirmed long-standing rumors about the development of a new GTA.

GTA fans and players were left in an uproar last year after a massive leak revealed many aspects of an upcoming GTA game. Rockstar confirmed that the leak was legitimate and that the FBI was involved. The leak revealed many aspects of the game, including combat, character details, and even voiceover dialogue.

Jason, Lucia, Gosling and Mendes

The leak also revealed that the two main protagonists of the game are Jason and Lucia. Hence the idea that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes inspired the characters in the game.

Bloomberg also published an article two months before the leak, which mentioned that Rockstar will introduce its first female character, Lucia, who will join Jason and form with him the duo of protagonists of the game. The Bloomberg article mentioned that Lucia would be Latina and that , with Jason, she could be compared to robbers like Bonnie and Clyde.

The leaks also reveal that Jason and Lucia will have a dynamic relationship system that will influence their romance, friendship, and general interaction based on player choices and actions. The rumor regarding Gosling and Eva Mendes has not been confirmed by either the actors or Rockstar, but it is unlikely that the actors were directly involved in the game. Rockstar Games co-founder Dan Houser revealed to Vulture magazine in 2018 that the company would no longer work with known Hollywood talent.

During the interview, Holder discussed the difficulties he encountered with Burt Reynolds in 2002, while working on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Houser said: “We no longer use big-name actors because of their ego and, more importantly, because we think we get better immersion by using talented actors whose voices you don't recognize. » If Gosling and Mendes are linked to the game, the developers likely took inspiration from their characters in The Place Beyond the Pines.
