Hollywood rumor mill ShowbizSpy says sources indicate movie star Brad Pitt is first in line to play John Marston in a big screen adaptation of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption.


How could any one movie capture the scope and grandeur of Red Dead Redemption? Getting Brad Pitt to star in it could be a good first step. According to ShowbizSpy's sources, the man who sees Angelina Jolie naked on a regular basis is being given first refusal for the role of lead character John Marston in the big-screen adaptation.

"This is an exciting project with a great character at the center of it," a source said. "The idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches."

Of course putting one's trust in Hollywood sources is generally not a good idea. Our friends at Rockstar Games tell us that this rumor is just that: A rumor.

I think Red Dead Redemption would work very well as a movie. Hell, the single player story basically has movie quality writing and voice acting as it is. As long as they approach it from a serious western angle and not a "let's make a video game movie" angle, it would be awesome.

I think Brad Pitt would be a good choice for the role, but Josh Brolin would be MUCH better.
