The British star once again talked about video games.
Henry Cavill has revealed that he just started playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and thinks the game deserves a movie adaptation. Of course, the actor would love to be part of such an adaptation.
Cavill is one of the few stars to be passionate about both movies and video games. Not long ago, the actor hinted that he would be interested in a possible adaptation of Amazon’s Mass Effect – if the show was “less edited from the source material”. And now the Witcher star has something else on her mind, too.
In a recent interview with game reactorHenry Cavill was asked what other game adaptations he might be interested in, besides his starring role as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s Witcher series (which is based on Sapkowski’s novels rather than CDPR’s games ).
“Well, that’s tricky, because you’re linking both an IP address and a company, which is a tricky thing to do, so I certainly don’t want to get into any corners with that, but there’s a lot of games there…” Cavill said. “I actually started playing Red Dead Redemption 2 – I know I’m a little late to this party – but I started playing it and I’m really enjoying it. And so, something like that, I think would be fun to turn into a movie.”
Rockstar’s Western is one of the biggest games of recent years – and perhaps one of the most impressive of all time. It’s hard to say whether a film adaptation would be a good idea, as the game’s story is long and nuanced, unfolding slowly in front of the player.
The British actor is known to be a gamer, particularly enjoying The Witcher, Warhammer 40K and World of Warcraft. With Red Dead Redemption 2, we’re hoping Cavill knows he’s off on a 100+ hour journey through the Wild West, so maybe the Witcher 3 expansions he’s never played will have to wait.
Your best bet to see Cavill in action is The Witcher season 2, out now on Netflix. According to critics, the new season fixes the biggest flaws of the first, while promising even more epic action for Season 3.
