Its no doubt that Red Dead Redemption is one of the most successful game's of this year, it brought one of the most powerful stories in video game history with fitting voice actors, top of the line facial animation for perfect in game cutscenes and some amazingly deep character's, one in which was John Marston the main protagonist and was surprisingly the best character in the game. So is it a big surprise that a movie could be on the horizon?Well no honestly, lest face it it was far too good to remain on consoles thats why they made a 30 minute film about the first few missions of the game directed by John Hillcoat.
So straight out of Hollywood is that Brad Pitt (Fight Club, Snatch) is eyeing the role of John Marston and has even went on to be given first right of refusal for the role. This instantly became big news since nobody even heard if the rights had been sold yet, the rumour went on and IGN asked Rockstar Games if any movie is on the horizon followed by the response that they dont wish to discuss any rumours.
Sadly, nothing has followed to back this rumour up but how fucking great would that be? I mean my first thought was "Brad Pitt plays video games?.." then my second was "Does he have an Xbox or PS3?..." and then followed by "...he probably has both systems..". But then I just realised that Brad Pitt is ace for this part, its crazy because you never think about the best actor to play John Marston until it comes along and smacks you in the face!
More on this soon....hopefully!
Hes so close from getting this part that Col. Hans Landa can just about touch him.....................
