Laslow Jones, Producer of Grand Theft Auto V, told US radio station WGN that the gangs in Rockstar Games' next title will be voiced by real life gang members, including one that came out of prison days before the recording started. In addition, Laslow also confirmed that there will be celebrities involved in the game, although he didn't reveal any more information regarding this.
Lazlow said to WGN that they hired gang members in order to make the voice acting look more authentic. "There's black gangs, there's Latino gangs, and we recruited a guy who gets gang members, like actual gang members, real gang members. I mean, El Salvadorian gang dudes with amazing tattoos and one of which literally had gotten out of prison the day before. And we brought these guys in to record the gang characters because you know, you don't want a goofy LA actor who went to a fancy school trying to be a hard gang member. There's nothing worse than that," said Lazlow.
Grand Theft Auto V will be released on the 17th of September for PS3 and Xbox 360.
