Deadline is reporting, Sony is eyeing Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct their video game-to-film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid. Jordan is best known for directing The Kings of Summer, which was a crticis-darling at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Talks between Jordan and Sony are said to be in the early stages. Former Marvel executive Avi Arad, who produced the Spider-Man films for Sony, will be producing this film as well.

This isn't the first time a Metal Gear Solid film has been in the works. 2008, there was talk of a movie, but that fell through when Hollywood and Konami could not come to an agreement on the size of the budget. It would've been produced by Boogie Nights' Michael De Luca.
During a training mission in February 2005 on Shadow Moses Island, a remote island off the coast of Alaska containing a nuclear weapons facility, FOXHOUND and the Next-Generation Special Forces rebelled against the United States Government, under the command of Liquid Snake. Their target was the advanced weapon system Metal Gear REX, a gigantic robotic weapons platform able to independently launch a nuclear warhead at any target on the face of the planet. Their demand was the body of the greatest soldier who ever lived, Big Boss, which, through gene therapy, they could use to create an army of ultimate soldiers. With the safety of the entire world at stake, at the request of the Secretary of Defense, Colonel Roy Campbell, the former commander of FOXHOUND, summoned Solid Snake out of retirement for one last solo covert operation to stop Liquid. - metalgear.wikia.com

Who?

What a weird choice for this type of movie. I loved The Kings of Summer, so I'm optimistic.
Hellsing - 6/3/2014, 3:53 PM
I absolutely loved Kings of Summer so great choice
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 3:54 PM
This guy hasnt done much but oh well.

He better do the series justice or i grab my Metal Gear and threaten to Nuke!
Hellsing - 6/3/2014, 3:54 PM
I kinda love how Studios are taking chances with Indie directors, regardless of the final out come its encouraging to see this happen
grif - 6/3/2014, 3:55 PM
i thought it had a director 5 or 6 years ago too. whatever...

It's almost impossible to make a video game movie decent. Maybe this and Uncharted will change that.
SpiderFraud - 6/3/2014, 3:57 PM
I wonder how convoluted and "Japanese" they plan on making this film.
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 3:58 PM
@BustASpideyPose

Hopefully as much as possible
Snooper - 6/3/2014, 3:58 PM
Yknow who would direct this movie better? Hideo Kojima. Out of the question? Nope.
Instead we get a director of a teen film.
Reasonnnn - 6/3/2014, 3:58 PM
Christian Bale as Solid Snake. That is Kojima's suggestion too!
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:00 PM
@Snooper

That would have worked , Wpuld also fufill Kojima's dream too.

I hope he has ALOT of say in the maaking of this movie
DurtyTalynt - 6/3/2014, 4:01 PM
Ill wait for a trailer. Dont see how it can be better than any of the games
MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:01 PM
Sounds good to me.
SpiderFraud - 6/3/2014, 4:02 PM
@Sid

I cant lie, those things are the reasons why I like MGS. Having Snake going for the stare down on a pair of tits, is always great, lol.
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:05 PM
@BustASpideyPose

I know man, If they just make it a run of the mill action flick i will lose my shit
DrunkenNukem - 6/3/2014, 4:06 PM
hahaha who the [frick] is this???

Kojima directing or no one will see this...true MGS fans know this
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:06 PM

SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:07 PM

TheDirtyMexican - 6/3/2014, 4:08 PM
I have a Metal Gear game for my PSP that I never got around to completing.
MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:09 PM
*Solid Snake, was thinking of two things at once.
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:10 PM
Portable Ops?

Loved it to pieces. Same with Peace Walker
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:11 PM
Lately ive pictured Liquid Snake being played by Chris Hemsworth....
TheDirtyMexican - 6/3/2014, 4:12 PM
Peace Walker...I think.
MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:13 PM
Hey Sid, you as your dirty mouth aren't perfect either!
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:14 PM
Oh? I have played each Metap Gear game to completion at least 4 times except Portable Ops and PW. Only twice for them. I beat MGS2 and 4 at least 12 times....

I have a problem....
SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:15 PM
You know i am perfect you son of a bitch! Dont put doubts in my mind!
NoPhucksGiven - 6/3/2014, 4:20 PM

MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:21 PM

SidTheAstroSlut - 6/3/2014, 4:22 PM
@NoPhucksGiven

You will join me in my rampage if it is awful then?

@BlackJack

YOU'LL HAVE TO GO THROUGH JAMESMAN FIRST!
TheDirtyMexican - 6/3/2014, 4:26 PM

MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:26 PM

MrBlackjack - 6/3/2014, 4:27 PM
