Daniel Radcliffe and Bill Paxton star in new drama The Gamechangers when it airs on BBC Two later this month.
This 90-minute factual drama goes behind the scenes of the hit video game Grand Theft Auto, arguably the greatest British coding success since Bletchley Park.
Radcliffe plays Sam Houser, the game’s designer, while Paxton stars as formidable Christian lawyer, Jack Thompson.
The film focuses on a three-year period of intense controversy in the history of this iconic game’s development. It happened when the two men clashed. This conflict, between the creative genius behind the game and a self-styled crusader for American morality, escalated into a fight for the hearts, minds and freedoms of an entire gaming generation.
The Gamechangers will be broadcast on BBC Two on Tuesday September 15 at 9pm.
