Sony Pictures studio behind MGS:Movie April 15th, 2007

8 months later, on 8th Feb­ru­ary 2007 Vari­ety reported that Colum­bia Pic­tures, owned by Sony Pic­tures Enter­tain­ment were “bring­ing hit vidgame fran­chise “Metal Gear Solid” to the bigscreen.

With the announce­ment came the news of Michael De Luca’s inolv­ment as a pro­ducer — pre­vi­ous works have included Amer­i­can His­tory X, Blade II and Mag­no­lia. Video game cre­ator Hideo Kojima will act as exec­u­tive pro­ducer, over­see­ing the project.

Yair Lan­dau, Sony chair, con­firmed it was in the works fol­low­ing his keynote speech Thurs­day at the DICE vidgame con­fab in Las Vegas — to quote, “It’s a very cin­e­matic game, it really lends itself to movie telling. But the ques­tion is, ‘How do you trans­late Snake’s expe­ri­ence into a full arc that con­forms to what audi­ences expect on the large screen?

Doug Bel­grad, an exec­u­tive involved with final­is­ing the deal (the other being Sam Dick­er­man) states that MGS is “loaded with well-developed, intrigu­ing char­ac­ters and one of the first games to ever use cin­e­matic tools in its sto­ry­telling.” The deal is sup­pos­edly near completion.

As it stands, the IMDB page pens a 2009 release date.

I think the msg fran­chise obvi­ously is one of the biggest and well done of all time. If this fran­chise is trans­formed in to a movie it will be, I think the hit of all times. Sony pic­tures is per­fect for this. Sony has done a few films (my favorites) Like Spider-man, Under­world, Res­i­dent Evil Tri­ol­ogy and Sil­lent hill. The last 2 from games. So i think this movie will be just…perfect. Please Hideo…pls do it.

David Hayter not being a part of the MGS movie is not good news. Some­one needs to recon­sider that before this movie starts being made. Does any­one know if the movie will revolve around the ‘shadow moses’ characters?
