Casting The Perfect Red Dead Redemption Film

One of the greatest games of all time could become one of the greatest westerns of all time...


Film adaptations of video games have a rather poor reputation. Whether it was because of a lack of respect for the source material, a storyline that made no sense or characters that were nothing like their gaming counterparts, there are many reasons why fans are more worried than optimistic about a film version of their favourite games.

But things have gotten better over the years. Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog performed well at the box office, and the Castlevania animated series on Netflix has won universal praise. If these franchises can be successfully adapted into films and tv shows, then there is still hope that the same success could be achieved with other games.

There are many incredible games fans would love to see get their chance on the big screen, and one such game is Rockstars iconic western, Red Dead Redemption. John Marston’s hunt for his former gang members would make for a thrilling cinematic experience, if done correctly.

Such a film would require a star-studded cast of actors capable of bringing all of the games key characters to life. So without further ado, here is, for your consideration, the perfect cast for a Red Dead Redemption film...


I am an open minded guy who is always up for trying new things. I love playing video games, watching and critiquing the latest films and tv shows and a big fan of football. So yeah, I’m pretty much just another generic white dude on the internet.
