The film is directed by Anton Beaudelaire and stars Milton McIlroy. The film plays a significant role within Michael's character arc in Grand Theft Auto V.

The film takes place in Liberty City, Algonquin, however it is all actually filmed using green-screen and on sets located in the back lot of the Richards Majestic studio in Los Santos, San Andreas.

Production history

After working for Devin Weston, Michael meets his idol Solomon Richards, and Solomon tells Michael that the production of the movie is in trouble. Michael helps Solomon by retrieving lead actor Milton and director Anton from Rocco Pelosi's club in East Los Santos. Both Milton and Anton intended to renegotiate their contract with the studio; however, Michael manages to intimidate the two into not doing so and show Solomon respect. Pelosi and his associate Gianni later beat up Solomon for screwing up his planned contract renegotiation, and Michael retaliates by killing the two. Solomon rewards Michael by naming him as associate producer. Just as the film is almost finished, Weston and his legal counsel Molly Schultz reveal that they plan to prematurely end production of the film so he can collect an insurance write-off. Michael chases down Molly for the only supposed existing copy of the film, accidentally killing her in the process. Solomon reveals to Michael that he had several digital backups of the film, and plans a premiere at the Oriental Theater so Weston can't try to can the movie again.
