Metal Gear Solid Movie Announced
At Konami’s Metal Gear 25th Anniversary, Hideo Kojima and Avi Arad (producer of such comic book films as Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men) announced that they are working on a film version of Metal Gear Solid. Columbia Pictures will be publishing the film. No details have been given as far as cast or script, but Kojima took the time to mention people who he enjoyed as actors, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.
Although almost all video game to film adaptations have been abysmal, Kojima is known for his work ethic and refuses to let the Metal Gear name be tarnished. Surely he’ll be keeping a very watchful eye on the project, being as he’s such a film fan himself.
