Sony Pictures Tries To Nail Down A Director For MGS Movie
Raise your hand if you're interested in the idea of a live action movie based on the legendary Metal Gear Solid franchise.
According to Deadline, Sony Pictures is moving forward with the project, and the company is currently in "early talks" with "The Kings of Summer" director Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct the film.
This film has been in the early stages of planning for quite some time, and that's because it took a while for Sony and Konami to "get on the same page" in terms of story. Series creator Hideo Kojima had previously confirmed that Solid Snake would be the protagonist but that's about all we know right now. As for who will play Snake, Kojima said he was thinking about Hugh Jackman, but he later opted for an unannounced newcomer.
Kojima is indeed working on the film in a supervisory role, so we'd like to think he won't let anyone muck it up. A perfectionist doesn't let that happen, right?
