Ratner Denied Guitar Hero Movie

“Rush Hour” director Brett Ratner has been denied the chance to direct a film based on the “Guitar Hero” video game series.

Ratner tells Entertainment Weekly that “I’d really like to do it, but they’re not letting me… I expressed my interest, but because it’s such a success, it’s like now there’s no reason to make a movie about it…. The game is wish-fulfilling, everyone can be a rock star… I might prevail… I usually do.”

Ratner’s schedule remains busy however with a fourth “Beverly Hills Cop” and an adaptation of the video game “God of War”.
