METAL GEAR SOLID Movie Wants Jordan Vogt-Roberts To Direct
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.
According to Deadline, Sony has set their sights on Jordan Vogt-Roberts as the director of their adaption of the popular video game franchise, Metal Gear Solid. There is no official agreement between the two sides. They are said to be "in early talks."
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
