Activision?s third-person shooter set in the Wild West has just gotten a major boost in talent. Aside from being penned by esteemed writer Randall Jahnson (co-screen writer of [i]The Mask of Zorro[/i] and [i]The Doors[/i]), top Hollywood actors will voice the characters for developer Neversoft?s newest game, [i]Gun[/i]. Thomas Jane (from movies such as [i]The Punisher[/i] and [i]*61[/i]) will voice [i]Gun[/i]?s Colton White, the main hero in the game. Colton White?s father will be voiced by longtime actor Kris Kristofferson ([i]Blade[/i] and [i]Payback[/i]), and Tom Skerritt ([i]Texas Rangers[/i]) will play the role of rebel fighter Clay Allison. Brad Dourif (HBO?s [i]Deadwood[/i]) will perform the voice over for ?evil preacher? Josiah Reed. Voice acting veteran Ron Pearlman, who did voice work for [i]NARC[/i], [i]True Crime: Streets of LA[/i], [i]Halo 2[/i], and [i]The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay[/i] (and starred in [i]Hellboy[/i] and [i]Blade 2[/i]) will be involved in the making of Activision?s [i]Gun[/i] as well.
[i]Gun[/i] is expected to have a deeply involved adult story, sandbox gameplay, lots of violence, and of course, great voice acting. It is also said to be shipping with a free pack of Official [i]Gun[/i] playing cards. [i]Gun[/i] is set to be released on all current major systems and the PC on 11/8/2005. An Xbox 360 version is to be released on 11/15/2005. A PSP version has yet to be confirmed. [i]Gun[/i] will be rated M for mature.
