A Red Dead Redemption movie is almost certainly on the horizon

Hear Ye hear ye, the chances of a Red Dead Redemption film are higher than ever now that Jack Black wants it to happen.

Films and TV shows based on video games have made a huge comeback over the last few years with the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog, The Last Of Us, and the Super Mario Bros Movie showing fans what a good adaptation looks like, and will soon be joined by Fallout.

Take a look at the latest trailer for the Fallout TV show below

With that in mind there’s still a large number of gaming IPs with a lot of potential for a big screen debut, and I don’t think any deserves it more than Red Dead Redemption.

Talk of a live-action film has made the rounds for a while now, with rumours saying it is and then it isn’t happening.

That being said the chances of a Red Dead Redemption film, or even a TV show, has significantly improved after film star Jack Black has expressed interest in the project.

Jack Black has been collecting video game film roles like Thanos collecting infinity stones, starring in The Super Mario Bros Movie, Borderlands, as well as the upcoming Minecraft live-action film.

In a recent interview, Black said he couldn’t “believe they haven’t already started making a movie of any of the Rockstar Games,” name dropping the Grand Theft Auto series, but “especially Red Dead Redemption.”

He continued: “Those things are already like movies, you know? I guess that’s the thing. Some video games are already halfway there to telling those kind of stories, and there are some movies that are like video games.”

If anyone could make a Red Dead Redemption film happen, it’s certainly Jack Black, though of course that also begs the question as to what character he could bring to life on the big screen?
