I like Brad Pitt, I love the idea of a new big budgeted western and with the source material this strong, it has the chance to be the first great video game adaptation. But I'm really not sure if I want to see this happen.
Red Dead Redemption is easily in my top 5 favourite video games, it's one of the most mature, well-written, well-made (in every aspect) and powerful game I've ever played, and there is no way that a movie could do the game justice. Why? Because it's a lengthy game 'divided' in three parts, each filled with a lot of characters, all of them memorable, and I don't want to see any parts of the game and especially not any of the characters get axed or butchered. So unless they make a trilogy or make the movie really, really long, there is no way they're gonna be able to fit all of this in! I'll still hope for the best.
