Rumor: Brad Pitt given first refusal of Red Dead Redemption role

Brad Pitt could be the leading man of the big screen adaptation of Rockstar’s 2010 hit Red Dead Redemption, the rumor has it.

According to a source of celebrity gossip site (via), the Assassination of Jesse James star is seen as a “perfect” fit for John Marston’s shoes and “is being given first refusal” of the role.

The movie itself is planned “in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches,” it’s also revealed.

Rockstar itself for now has brushed off the rumors as just that, rumor.
