Hot on the heels of a Rockstar Films trademark filed by Take Two Interactive, LA Noire actor Adam Harrington has told VideoGamer.com that he'd love to bring the character of Roy Earle (partner to Cole Phelps) to life in movies.
"I certainly think LA Noire would work as a film adaptation, and of course, I would love to bring Earle to that environment too," said Harrington. "I think it would make a great film, and I think Roy Earle is such a well-conceived character, he already seems like he was something that was taken from a film anyway. So I would love to see him brought to life in a film and I would love to play his role."
Only last week it was discovered that on December 21, 2010 Take Two Interactive filed a trademark for Rockstar Films. The trademark summary offers the following information:
"Animated motion picture films featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes; pre-recorded video discs and other pre-recorded digital and electronic media in the field of live action programs, motion pictures, or animation featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes."

Rockstar has a wide pool of potential properties from which to base films, including LA Noire, Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Midnight Club, Bully and Max Payne. Personally, I'm crossing my fingers for a Rockstar Presents Table Tennis motion picture.
