Successful game studio Rockstar Games’ popular story-driven Western game series Red Dead Redemption is reportedly being adapted into a movie.
It seems we can see one more popular Western movie after a long time, with a Red Dead Redemption movie seeming possible on the horizon. Being hugely popular again with its second entry, Red Dead Redemption 2, a brilliant game with every aspect of it, RDR is going to be a movie. Sony will be producing the movie as can be expected, for Sony’s boss Jim Ryan previously stated that they were going to adapt more and more games for cinema.
We have previously seen those attempts from Sony from Uncharted and The Last of Us, for example. After announcing those movie adaptations, Sony’s boss said that there would be more. Now an inside source of GFN seems to have leaked that Sony’s next objective is to adapt Red Dead Redemption into the screens. The same source earlier leaked many then-future updates, such as Bruce Campbell’s cameo in Doctor Strange, Monica Rambeau’s being a major character in Disney+’s Secret Invasion. They also have recently leaked that Demon’s Souls is being adapted into a movie as well.
This interest of companies to adapt games into cinema is understandable. As games are being more and more popular, everybody tends to want a piece from this huge market. This does not solely include cinema as well, for The Witcher series was a huge success for Netflix, and they even decided to make a spin-off for it, called The Witcher: Blood Origin. With that being said, it always seems like a better idea to adapt the games that are story-driven and cinematic, as they already have the vibe of a movie. Both games of Red Dead Redemption are in that category because they offer the gamers such a good cinematic experience with a compelling story.
