It’s been a long, hard road bringing the hit game series Metal Gear Solid to Hollywood, but now it appears that we’re finally going to see a movie following the exploits of Solid Snake.
Columbia Pictures and producer Avi Arad (Spider-Man, Iron Man) announced the upcoming film at the 25th anniversary event for the game series in Tokyo.
A Metal Gear Solid movie has been in the works since 2008, when Boogie Nights and Moneyball producer Mike De Luca was working on an adaptation that fizzled in 2010. X-Men and Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter tackled the project next with a new script in 2010, but once again the project fell through.
Series creator Hideo Kojima expressed his desire to see Christopher Nolan direct, but so far there have been no casting rumors or release dates announced. Who would you like to see play the leading man?
