Brad Pitt to star in Red Dead movie?

He's the "hot favourite", apparently.

Hollywood megastar Brad Pitt has been tipped to star in a new movie based on Red Dead Redemption.

According to Showbiz Spy, Pitt "is the hot favorite to play renegade outlaw John Marston in an epic cowboy shoot-em-up based on the PlayStation game".

Pitt hasn't commented on the story. But a source was quoted as saying, "This is an exciting project with a great character at the center of it The idea is to make this in the style of an epic Western movie but with a few modern touches.

"Brad is perfect for the role and he is being given first refusal."

But what if Brad says no? We vote Ben Fogle for second choice.

Red Dead Redemption is out now for PlayStation Three and the Micro-soft X-Box 360.
