Now Playing: Red Dead Redemption 2 Video Review

"Well, that's a tricky one, 'cause you're tying both an IP and a company together, which is a tricky thing to do, so I certainly don't want to put myself in any corners with that, but there are plenty of games out there... I've actually started playing Red Dead Redemption 2-I know I'm a little bit late to that party- but I started playing it and I'm really enjoying it," he said. "And so, something like that I think would be fun to turn into a movie."

Rockstar's games are known for their cinematic nature and storytelling, and westerns are seemingly always popular, so Red Dead seems like a strong candidate. However, Rockstar owner Take-Two typically shies away from making movies based on its games. This isn't to say it could never happen, though.

In other news, Cavill recently spoke about how he would "love" to be cast in Amazon's rumored Mass Effect TV series. While the Mass Effect TV series isn't a sure thing, Amazon has officially announced a Fallout TV show from the creators of WestWorld.
