Would you watch a Red Dead Redemption movie starring Snowy Jon?

Although Kit Harington in Call of Duty wasn’t bad either, we wouldn’t imagine a Red Dead Redemption film adaptation with it. But a fan does.

Rockstar shows no sign yet of wanting to entrust any of their franchises to film professionals. No wonder, as their games themselves are crafted with sophistication that doesn’t put a cinema or series in the corner. The same can be said for Red Dead Redemption 2, but someone has now put together a fictional preview for a movie that will probably never be made.

Rob Long, behind the Smasher YouTube channel, imagined what it would be like if Kit Harington, who became known for the Battle for Thrones series, jumped in and fired the six-shot six times, and the result was a rather interesting Red Dead Redemption movie preview. Most of the scenes come from the 2017 Revenge movie, by the way, but the end result ultimately conveys the atmosphere of Rockstar’s game quite well:

Netflix and HBO are putting more and more video game series into live-action form, so it’s not out of the question that if they show a pretty fat check to Take-Two, they’re on a rope, but there’s very little chance of that. If by chance you could still make a series or a movie out of this game, who would you like to see in the main roles (Who, you understand ?!)?
