‘Absolutely ridiculous’: Days Gone writers unhappy with actor’s choice to star in film adaptation of Sony exclusive


Yesterday became knownthat a film adaptation of the game has been launched in development Days Gonein which the main role should be played by Sam Heughan, known from the TV series “A foreigner“. Many fans of biker zombie action were left at a loss at the choice of performer, since in the original game the image of Deacon St. John fully embodied Sam Witwer American actor who continues to work in the industry.

Fan opinion was also shared by the authors of the game, John Garvin and Jeff Ross, who expressed their disappointment with the casting..

“It’s absolutely ridiculous that they didn’t cast Sam Witwer. He is in good physical shape, has the right appearance, and he knows how to act like a damn,” co-creator Jeff Ross commented on the news about the film.

The screenplay adaptation of Days Gone is Sheldon Turner, who was nominated for an Oscar and won a Golden Globe for his work with Jason Reitman on the script of the film “I would go to heaven“.
