Rocky Horror Picture Show pin-up Susan Sarandon will make her video game debut in Dishonored as the glamorously named Granny Rags, an intriguing old mad lady.

She'll star alongside Grima Wormtongue actor Brad Dourif, who'll portray the inventor Piero - he who makes the mask that Corvo, the game's protagonist, wears.

Sarandon won an Oscar for Dead Man Walking. This is her as Janet Weiss in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

John Slattery from Mad Men will be Corvo sympathiser Admiral Havelock, and hard-faced Reservoir Dog, Michael Madsen, will be the mysterious assassin Daud.

The girl killing machine in Kick-Ass, Chloë Grace Moretz, will be Young Lady Emily.

Emily's caretaker Calista will be played by Lena Headey from The Parole Officer, the underrated (yes it was) Steve Coogan film. She's probably more famous for the Terminator TV series, though. Connor imagine why.

On top of all that, Bethesda's forked out for Dexter composer Daniel Licht to do Dishonored's music.

Quite a wage payout; a statement of Bethesda's intent with this game, perhaps.

Dishonored's the stylish stealth game being made by French studio Arkane (owned by Zenimax/Bethesda). It's reminiscent of Thief and System Shock.

Our Will Porter previewed Dishonored, and said that if it fulfils its potential, it "could be a defining game of this generation".
