A number of online casting calls for an "interactive project" suggest that the next installment of the Grand Theft Auto series is currently codenamed "RUSH".

Uncovered by internet sleuth Superannuation , the casting company is listed as Telsey + Company, a firm used in the past by Rockstar Games.

The list of characters appear very GTA-like indeed, including a "weed evangelist", a "paranoiac living in the sticks" and a "somewhat incompetent Chinese mobster".

The listings also suggest that the game will be set in modern times, with characters ranging from an "FPS playing gamer son" to a "disabled IT expert".

A resume for actress Shandar Robinson at Actors Access also features the RUSH name, along with an "Inner city female street" role from "Take 2 Games", which wholly owns Rockstar.

Analysts said recently that they believe GTA V will be announced sometime during the 2012 fiscal year, due to the upcoming expiration of Take-Two's contract with key Rockstar North staff.
