Here’s a little tidbit of news we missed, back in an interview in 2006 Hideo Kojima announced that he thought Lord of the Rings star, Viggo Mortensen, would be the perfect role as Snake.
Hideo Kojima : ‘It’s going to be a Hollywood film. It won’t be that German director [Uwe Boll]. Viggo Mortensen would make a perfect Snake, but maybe he’s a little too old. Metal Gear Solid, which was set in Alaska, would make a perfect setting for the movie.’
