Actor Henry Cavill expressed interest in acting in a Red Dead Redemption 2 adaptation while promoting the second season of Netflix’s The Witcher. Given his skill and resume, it’s no doubt that he could be a good prospect for a lead role if ever the film would come to life.
An In-Depth Idea
The game is incredibly emotional and cinematic in its presentation, depicting the narrative of a family of outlaws who become fragmented as the Wild West’s golden age begins to fade. It appeals to players from all walks of life and has become a symbol of the medium’s strength as a form of art, a historical depiction, and a vehicle for compelling storytelling.
A Good Choice
Cavill has four projects in the works, including Argyll, Highlander, Enola Holmes 2, and The Rosie Project, but it hasn’t stopped him from thinking about a video game adaptation he’d like to see and star in.
While an obvious choice for his role would John Marston, it would seem like Cavill would still be able to pull off more roles than that one. Still it would be exciting to see one of Hollywood’s hottest talents put on a show when it comes to a Red Dead Redemption adaptation.
