Brad Pitt to Star in Red Dead Redemption Movie?

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Brad PittBRAD Pitt is planning to make a movie version of video game hit Red Dead Redemption.

Sources say the Hollywood heartthrob is the hot favorite to play renegade outlaw John Marston in an epic cowboy shoot-em-up based on the PlayStation game.

“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.

“Brad is perfect for the role and he is being given first refusal.”

    He’s already starring in Jolie’s reality soap, a minor part that is…. almost an extra… like her kids.
    No time to do other stuff.

      What reality soap is that? You mean their life?

  • Unkown Gamer

    Red Dead Redemption is also available for the Xbox 360, I should know since I have it. Not just PlayStation, research about the game before you claim it’s sole console.

  • jesc

    They should use Hugh Jackman.

  • Dude

    Fuck that! One of the best damn games out there and they use that tool? i agree w/ jesc…use Jackman!

  • Mike

    Playstation version of the game? That’s silly, so they are doing the movie based on the slightly worse version of the game? Not enough money to do it based on the Xbox 360′s Red Dead Redemption ?

  • grandma

    Hey Mike, you are honestly a retard. They are both pretty much the same, unless you have autism or some other basement dwelling self proclaimed disease and you notice something completely irrelevant like frames per second or a missing polygon in this or that specific location. Both consoles are great and I just guess you’re too poor to own both like a real man.

  • blap

    Hugh Jackman is the tool..

    • Dude

      Ur name should be splat, not blap. Jackman would be a better choice than Brad Jolie’s bitchboy Pitt!

  • Another perspective

    @Mike and Unknown Gamer,

    Come on guys. A really cool game is going main stream, offering additional revenue to the publishers via royalties which they can re-invest to continue making great games.

    Lets not scare all the good people away with your console flaming. Yes – both of you are right (it is not an exclusive and technically it does run better on the 360), but you are missing the point here.

    We should be happy that this is happening. Rather pray that the movie isn’t a totally screw up that fails to convey the story (which is the same on both consoles, the movie will after all be a passive experience).

    Here’s hoping the director is not a n00b ;)

    Pitt plays spy very well.
    To play a renegade? Hm…think again

    HELLOOO! Has no-one seen Tomebstone, Pitt is the man for the job, if he can put a bit of that character into this film, it will be EPIC!

      Pitt wasn’t in Tombstone, that was Kurt Russel, you idiot.

  • n/a

    Its unlikely this movie will be made, but if it is, and he does accept the role it would be a good thing. Snatch, Burn After Reading, Inglorious Basterds, Fight Club, Twelve Monkey’s, etc. He’s played a wide variety of roles some of which being polar opposites. If anyone can handle the role, he’s on the list of who can. Lets just hope the rest of the movie doesn’t suck.

  • ant04

    wery want to see the film))

  • Tori

    Please no! Make it SAM ROCKWELL!!!!!!!!

  • Terry Hunter

    Great post.It’s wonderful that you can write so well. In my opinion, communication with this topic hasn’t exactly been the greatest.

  • Dinks

    I agree with the Hugh Jackman choice or what about Johnny Depp??? Both would better suited methinks. Brad’s too much of a pretty boy – not exactly the “rugged” type. Here’s hoping if the Director is a good one, the film will be good and not cheesy!

  • Pat

    Sean Bean would be amazing if he could get the accent down, he already looks exactly like Marston

  • tate

    Too bad Clint Eastwood isn’t fifty years younger. i think he would be great at playing John Marston, or even Red Harlow from the original game.

  • T-Wayne09


    You are exactly right! Clint Eastwood would be amazing as John Marston. As for Johnny Depp, he would probably make the role a little more comical than it needs to be. Don’t get me wrong, Mr. Depp is a wonderful actor but I wouldn’t be able to take him seriously as a cowboy. I don’t want Brad Pitt to be Marston but I think he would be better than Hugh Jackman.

    When I played the game I somehow imagined Russell Crowe as John Marston… I think they bear some resemblance both in looks and way to talk. Of corse, Crowe would have to work on a western accent but I think he could manage.

  • J-Mac

    Have you seen the new True Grit movie. The actor that plays Tom Chaney – Josh Brolin is a dead ringer in every way for the part.

  • Dave

    Reading these comments, it’s apparent that none of you have seen The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Amazing movie, and it PROVES, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Pitt would make an amazing John Marston.

  • Your Mum

    Hugh jackman 4 john marston.
    Needs all star cast and should be in 2 or 3 parts.

    • your dad

      Fuck you , you whore , piece of shit mother fucking dickless twat

Nevertheless, I beg your pardon, because I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It would seem to me that your comments are generally not completely justified and in reality you are your self not even fully convinced of your assertion. In any event I did enjoy reading it.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    why? why? Dont make the fuckin movie at all if you cant get jeff bridges in there and the Cohen brothers or John Hilcoat have to direct. Brad Pitt will be around for 30 more years but how long are you going to be able to get clint eastwood or jeff bridges I HATE MY LIFE!
