It has been years since Metal Gear Solid movie was announced and we have not heard anything about the movie for quite some time. However, movie’s director has stated that it is not dead and it is still happening.
Speaking with Collider, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts said that Metal Gear solid is the most important franchise for him on the planet and praised the work of Hideo Kojima. He added that he recently has been meeting with Kojima himself and that’s been “like a dream”.
He revealed that the script for Metal Gear Solid movie is still in the works and it is actually coming along. He said that it is a movie that he fight for and make sure that it is done right.
That is a property that I will fight tooth and nail to make sure is done properly because it’s so easy to screw it up and so easy for a studio to try and make it into G.I. Joe or try and make it into Mission: Impossible or try and make it into something that it’s not. Metal Gear Solid needs to be exactly what it needs to be, which is Metal Gear Solid.
He further said that Metal Gear Solid movie will be a massive movie but for that, it needs to be made in the right way.
I think it’d be a massive film, I think it’d be an incredible film, but it needs to be done in a way that completely honors what Metal Gear is because it’s a classic and it’s a seminal work not just in video games, but in media.
While Kojima will no longer be developing any new Metal Gear game but it is good to know that the movie will be based on the Kojima’s vision.
Currently, Gears Of War 4 and The Division movies are in the works. Gears Of War movie is in post-production and The Division movie will star Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role. Gyllenhaal will not only star but will also produce the movie.
We might not see the Metal Gear Solid movie anytime soon, but the next game in the franchise, Metal Gear Survive, will launch later this year.
