The director of X-Men: The Last Stand and Rush Hour 3 expressed his interested in working on a film based on Activision's popular music title. In an interview with MTV, Brett Ratner said:
“I love Guitar Hero and I think it’s a part of pop culture. I would love to do a ‘Guitar Hero’ movie, if Activision would ever let me. I’m trying to convince them, but why would you have a movie screw up such a huge franchise? Not that I would make a bad movie. So that would be cool, to do a Guitar Hero movie.”
As for the potential movie's plot, Ratner said that the story would revolve around "a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and [the kid] wins the Guitar Hero competition". Also, according to Ratner, he contributed in naming Activision's latest installment to the music series. "Come up with a name [per Activision's request]. And I did, and it became Guitar Hero: World Tour.” GH: World Tour is due out this October 26 for the 360, PS3, PS2 and Wii platforms.
Next up: Guitar Praise, directed by Mel Gibson.
