Well shucks, partnah'! It would appear we've got ourselves another video game adaptation on our hands. This time, Red Dead Redemption takes hold of the reins and charges forward to the big screen. Red Dead follows the story of a cowboy, John Marston, who must track down his former associates and assassinate them in order to free his family from their government imprisonment. The game has achieved loads of praise and is considered to be one of the best games of 2010.

So who could possible handle the film adaptation of this golden game? Brad Pitt, that's who. At least, we think so?

According to Showbiz Spy, Pitt is currently circling the project and may even choose to star in the film himself. It wouldn't be the first time Pitt has played a cowboy. THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSIE JAMES features a gun-totting, cowboy hat-wearing, Western Pitt, and he received quite a bit of critical praise for his work in the film. With Westerns making a shaky, yet determined, comeback, it's no surprise that Pitt is interested in the project.

Could this be the film that finally get the video-game-adaptation genre right? With all the fan backing, it certainly couldn't hurt. I have not yet played the game myself, but I expect I will no longer be able to sit on the sidelines and watch as my Twitter feed lights up with Red Dead Redemption praise. Maybe Brad Pitt is on to something here? Only time will tell.
