Metal Gear Solid fans will have to be patient for the time being when it comes to the first information about the planned film. Nothing has been heard from the project for a long time. Some fans are now worried about the theatrical adaptation. However, the all-clear is now given by the main actor, who will slip into the role of Solid Snake. In an interview with Comic Book, actor Oscar Isaac clarified that production of Metal Gear Solid will continue with his involvement.
How far is the project?
“We want it to happen. Rejoice. What’s the script? What’s the story? How do we approach it? […] Hopefully that will come to fruition because there is so much potential. It’s an insane game. My favorite!” – said Oscar Isaac in an interview. Already in 2020 the actor – known for his roles as Poe Dameron in Star Wars and Moon Knight in the MCU – was confirmed as Solid Snake in the film adaptation. He has a year previously brought up for the part himself.
Metal Gear Solid will be directed by filmmaker Jordan Vogt-Roberts. He most recently directed Kong: Skull Island. Derek Connoly, who wrote the script for Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, is writing the script. Producer is Avi Arad, who has worked primarily with Marvel on numerous projects in the past. Including the Spider-Man films with Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
