The lights are on
A few months ago, we picked who we'd like to star in the rumored Mass Effect movie. Now we're hearing rumblings of a Hollywood take on Rockstar's western epic Red Dead Redemption. Rumors would place Brad Pitt in the role of John Marsten, but we have our own picks for RDR on the big screen. Take a look.
John Marston - Viggo Mortensen or Sean Bean (take your pick)
Bonnie MacFarlane - Naomi Watts (King Kong, Mulholland Drive)
Nigel West Dickens - Brian Doyle Murray (Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, Groundhog Day, pretty much everything else his brother was in)

I would'nt actually want a Red Dead movie,the game already has some scenes from famous westerns anyway.
Please do this more often, but for all sorts of games with a large character base. Even games that haven't yet been thought of for a movie. I absolutely love reading these, and if you want, hire me and i'll do all the work for ya. haha
Good call on the horse. Could not have picked a better fit for it.
john is a hard one they would both be good but Viggo would make a fantastic Marston just because he is a badass its a hard choice...
That last one is spot on!!
rofl at the last one!! So perfect
Love these pics, especially the last one. Even though Viggo Mortensen looks like john, Timothy Olyphant sounds exactly like him.
Fortunately this movie already came out in 2008 "Appaloosa", check it out
i am already in love the beautiful naomi as bonnie. she was my favorite character in the game and i dont no why but i feel like she would rock that part
I always thought vigo mortensen should play marston's part if there ever was a movie. glad to see we think alike ;) lol. oh yea and your match for seth if perfect lol
Viggo would be great. He was awesome in Hedalgo.
so umm...who wants to ride the horse?
great choices all of them. especially viggo, rockwell, and zayas.
Nice job with most of the characters (I personally prefer Gamesradar's choice for Irish: Mel Gibson)
Nice pics - this game should make a great movie, hopefully it doesn't get butchered
Haha Nice. This is awesome! I love the last one.
good list, but you forgot to cast reyes, lol on the last one
Hell yes for Sam Elliot!
I'd have 2 say all of GI's choices are spot on , but Marstons horse is the best castin of them all! but I want to throw my own choice in there for Marston hows Steve Austin, I know its a lil bit crazy but I think it could really work!
Viggo would be perfect for the part, although Brad Pitt actually wouldn't be half bad either. He was great as Jesse James in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford".
