Fans who are hoping to see Grand Theft Auto turned into a film have one man to blame for their inevitable disappointment – Ron Howard.

Damn  you, Richie Cunningham!

Yes, the LA Weekly is reporting that the film based on the Rockstar series is likely to never happen due to a 1977 movie of the same name, directed by and starring Ron Howard.

Grand Theft Auto, the film, is said to be the source of a legal settlement in which Rockstar supposedly agreed to never make a Grand Theft Auto film as long as Fox never makes a videogame based on Howard's flick.

In other words, Rockstar has the rights to the Grand Theft Auto game series, while Fox owns the rights for the unrelated but identically named Grand Theft Auto movie. 

Confused?

Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, 360) pulled in $500 million during its first week at retail, and has since sold over 8.5 million units worldwide.

I say we all write letters to ABC, producers of Happy Days, and demand they fire Opie and give The Fonz his own show!
