'Days Gone' Devs Are Really Unhappy With Supposed Movie Casting

'Days Gone' Devs Are Really Unhappy With Supposed Movie Casting

Days Gone directors John Garvin and Jeff Ross expressed their disappointment that Deacon's original actor has seemingly been overlooked.

In case you missed it, it was recently reported that Bend Studio’s 2019 action-adventure, Days Gone, will apparently be getting its own movie adaptation. Not bad for a game that apparently wasn’t considered to have sold well enough (despite matching Ghost of Tsushima’s sale numbers, confusingly).

Take a look at the story trailer for Days Gone below.

Either way, a movie might not exactly be the sequel that fans have been calling for, but you’d think any content is good content, right? Wrong, apparently. As reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, Days Gone directors John Garvin and Jeff Ross have taken to Twitter to share their opinions on the supposed casting of protagonist Deacon St. John, and, uh, they’re not happy.

According to Deadline, it’ll be Sam Heughan taking centre stage, AKA Jamie Fraser from Outlander. However, the devs clearly had their own ideas for who would be a good fit, and it’s none other than Deacon’s voice and motion capture actor. Which, yes, would make perfect sense.

“Absolutely ridiculous they aren’t casting Sam Witwer. He’s got the physicality, the right look, and he can motherf**king act,” wrote Ross. “This,” replied Garvin.

God of War (2018) director Cory Barlog also shared the same thoughts: “Dude. Sam Witwer is Deacon. Would watch the hell out of a movie with him in it,” he tweeted. “Okay, you can argue with me, but you can’t argue with this dude!” Garvin responded.

As of now, there hasn’t been any official word given on the movie or its apparent casting, so we’ll just have to sit tight and see what comes of it all.
