A fresh update is going live in GTA Online on March 26, adding a new car to the podium at the Casino, as well as some GTA$ and RP bonuses, and as always some big discounts on properties and vehicles.

Last week’s update saw the addition of the JB700W to the podium, the classic James Bond Aston Martin look-a-like, but Rockstar have gone a completely different direction for the Lucky Wheel vehicle this week.

The Zion Classic is on the podium instead, and despite its dated looks (it’s based on the classic first-gen BMW M6), it’s still a valuable vehicle that would set you back over $800,000 if purchased from Super Autos.

Rockstar have now released the full patch notes, so we know exactly what’s included with the March 26 Update.

March 26 GTA Online Update

Lucky Wheel podium: Zion Classic

Rockstar Games
The Zion Classic will be available on the Lucky Wheel podium.

It might not be as flashy as last week’s JB700W, but the Zion Classic is a pacey and nimble 2-door coupé. It might look pretty plain at first glance, but this isn’t anything a few modifications can’t fix.

You will get one spin of the Lucky Wheel each day you log on to GTA Online, for a chance to scoop it up for free.

GTA$ and RP bonuses

Last week the bonus was only 2x, but it’s up to 3x  cash and RP this week in the Motor Wars Adversary mode.

Motor Wars is a classic mode, added all the way back in 2017.

Additionally, you will receive the “Knuckleduster” livery for the Avenger plane and Khanjali tank for free just for logging in this week, the latter of which is also 50% off this week.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
