The infamous Grand Theft Auto series may be looking to set up for it’s fifth installment. New evidence has revealed itself recently suggesting that GTA may be in it’s casting call stage. A series of Tweets and a few code words uncovered some sweet details.
An information sleuthing website supperannuation started tweeting this
“After I found out the GTA5 stuff weekend before last, I went on a number of Google/WHOIS searches to see if there was anything else to find. Unsurprisingly, it was all coming up empty — but I then decided to search for things from the last year pertaining to motion capture and…their casting company—Telsey & Company; unexpectedly, the 1st result was a casting call on an acting blog for a game called Sao Paulo Knights which reminded me of Max Payne 3′s description. Surely enough, a quick search of Sao Paulo Knights came up w/ an actor’s news page http://j.mp/ed4fCb which mentioned it right next to MP3. I went back to the mocap search and scrolled further down at the results & noticed a daily casting call roundup*** http://j.mp/fQqgLUAnd among the projects listed in the casting call was an “interactive project” called “Rush,” which featured characters that fit with the… few details I heard about GTA5; outlandish characters, weed, gangsters, & celebrities fit the profile for a contemporary LA-set GTA game. Plus it’s being casted by Telsey & Company. With all of that, I feel fairly confident in saying that “Rush” is actually a codename for GTA5.”
A possible character list was also uncovered by NeoGaf reader for the game:
38 – Annoying, wise cracking, highly successful FBI agent. In great shape. Does triathlons, drinks low cal beer, but still has a sense of humor.
