Developer Tim Schafer Comments On Tim Curry Replacing Ronnie James Dio In Brutal LegendIt no doubt saddened many a Black Sabbath fan looking forward to Tim Schafer’s upcoming rock-powered title Brutal Legend to find out yesterday that legendary singer Ronnie James Dio had been cut from the game. Taking Dio’s place as the character of Doviculus is famed actor Tim Curry of Rocky Horror Picture Show, IT and Clue fame. (Schafer apparently said it was Curry's turn as the Lord of Darkness in Ridley Scott's Legend that sealed the deal.)

Today, as Joystiq reports, Tim Schafer said about the cast shuffling, "Ronnie James Dio is an amazing singer and truly one of the great figures of Metal, but as the character of Doviculus evolved, we realized that Tim Curry was a better fit for the part."

Without any knowledge of the inner workings of developer Double Fine concerning the game’s production, it seems that Schafer’s reasoning will have to do. As long as the game is still on track for an October 13 release date, I’m fine with the change. I am a little about not being able to see Jack Black and Dio reunite, given their Tenacious D history, but Tim Curry rocks, and I’m sure he’ll kill the part.
