Metal Gear Solid Movie Announced, May 2006 April 15th, 2007

Firstly on April 28th in a pod­cast, then on May 10th 2006 at the last E3 expo Metal Gear Solid cre­ator (amidst rumors), Hideo Kojima, made the announce­ment that a feature-length film adap­ta­tion of the pop­u­lar series was in development:

I have received many offers to adapt Metal Gear Solid. It has taken a long time, but we have finally set­tled on an arrange­ment. False facts aside, a movie project is under­way. I have final­ized a Class-A con­tract with a party in Hol­ly­wood.Source.

Dur­ing this time rumors were abound that the atro­cious and piti­ful direc­tor Uwe Boll (Alone in the Dark, Postal) was some­how involved. At the announce­ment these rumors were quashed, Ger­man direc­tor Uwe Boll will not have any­thing to do with the project — “it’s impos­si­ble we’d ever do a movie with him”.

Hugh Jack­man ONLY!

I think David Wen­ham would make an excel­lent Snake. Check him out in 300 wear­ing a ban­dana and eye­patch look­ing as solid snake as pos­si­ble. I really think the best start­ing point for a series of MGS movies would be to tell the story of Big Boss by adapt­ing MGS3.

IF the movie mak­ers would decide on incor­po­rat­ing the MGS3 story, I think a per­fect young Ocelot would be Michael Rosen­baum (Lex Luthor on “Smal­l­ville” TV series). If you com­pare, you’ll see the resem­blance between both with the dif­fer­ence that Rosen­baum is “bald” (shaved) because of his role on the series. And Rosen­baum already plays a bad guy, so it’s be eas­ier fo him. Just an opin­ion, but they look alike…

I think the first movie should be about mgs3 and the per­fect snake is kurt rus­sel. the per­fect ocelot would be michael rosenbaum.But what­ever story you do I will enjoy it.Hideo Kojima excel­lent game great direct­ing and great story lines.

I recon Christo­pher Nolan should Direct as well as pro­duce, screen­play and write a scripts look waht he did with Bat­man he is per­fect for the role he would make it fait­ful to the game like he did with Bat­man Begins and The Dark Knight he made them fait­ful to the comics imag­ine what he could do with metal gear series go on http://​www​.kon​ami​.jp/​k​o​j​i​m​a​_​p​r​o​/​e​n​g​l​i​s​h​/​i​n​d​e​x​.​h​tml and go to the mail sec­tion and tell them that he is the best for it if you want a fait­ful adap­tion then ask for Christo­pher Nolan he has made films with great reviews and awards he is perfect.
