Speaking to MTV, the Rush Hour director admitted that his plans had been met with some resistance by the game's developer.
"I love Guitar Hero and I think it's a part of pop culture," he said. "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."
Ratner explained how he would approach the movie's storyline, adding: "It could be about a kid from a small town who dreams of being a rock star and he wins the Guitar Hero competition. One of these dreams-[come-true] kind of concepts."
