Now Henry Cavill Wants To Star In A Live-Action Red Dead Movie

Now Henry Cavill Wants To Star In A Live-Action Red Dead Movie

We've said it before and we'll say it again, Henry Cavill is in danger of becoming the next Chris Pratt. What's next, is he going to be throwing his hat in the ring to voice Crash Bandicoot? Now, The Witcher star has said he'd love to appear in a live-action Red Dead Redemption adaptation.

While we're used to hearing Cavill bang the drum for Mass Effect adaptation, he's now put on a stetson and a pair of spurs with hopes to ride out into the Ol' West of Rockstar's cowboy caper. If being kept busy with seven potential seasons of The Witcher isn't enough, what about playing Arthur Morgan?

What Has Henry Cavill Said About Red Dead Redemption?

Speaking to GameReactor to promote The Witcher Season 2, Cavill said he's been enjoying his playthrough of 2018's Red Dead Redemption 2. When asked what game he'd like to see get an adaptation, he said: "Well, that's a tricky one, 'cause you're tying both an IP and a company together, which is a tricky thing to do, so I certainly don't want to put myself in any corners with that, but there are plenty of games out there..." said the star.

"I've actually started playing Red Dead Redemption 2 -I know I'm a little bit late to that party- but I started playing it and I'm really enjoying it. And so, something like that I think would be fun to turn into a movie." Even though it's far from confirmation Cavill is in talks to portray Arthur Morgan, fandom seems divided on whether they could see him as the surly cowboy or even Red Dead's John Marston. 

It might seem odd that Cavill would pick RDR2 over 2010's OG, but remember that the second game is actually a prequel to its predecessor. Now that Cavill is behind a live-action Red Dead, we just need Tinsel Town to listen.

Will There Be A Live-Action Red Dead Movie?

At the time of writing, there's no official word that any form of Red Dead adaptation is in the works. Upcoming releases include the likes of Sony's Uncharted movie and HBO Max's all-star The Last of Us series, while there are continued talks about a Mass Effect series.

Ultimately, the idea of a live-action Red Dead is up to Rockstar Games - which is hardly known for adapting its biggest IPs. We've previously covered why Rockstar owner Take-Two Interactive doesn't think a GTA movie would work, and it's probably much the same with Red Dead.

Even if Red Dead Redemption's two games haven't covered as much lore as GTA, it's a suitably massive world that has a lot of ground to cover. Shows like Deadwood have been incredibly popular being set in this period, and it's easy to imagine Red Dead being a gun-toting series rather than a flash in the pan movie.

2018 was a massive year for gaming, and alongside hopes of a live-action God of War movie, giving Red Dead Redemption the Hollywood treatment would undoubtedly be a money-spinner. Then again, we've seen the recent flop of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City to show how not to adapt the source material.
