David Hayter will have no defining involvement in the live action metal gear solid movie adaptation. Hayter himself, the voice of Solid Snake and screenwriter/actor, wrote a treatment for the film however Konami and the big players turned it down.
Hayter has not been hired to script or produce the upcoming feature, should he have been, the film may have followed his intended direction, which was, “Metal Gear as the Apocalypse Now of the digital age, with Snake at the center of a swirling whirlpool of Genomic/military madness.”
A 90% majority vote at IGN believe omitting Hayter from the proceedings is a mistake. Hayter has previously been involved with the screenplays of Brian Signer’s X-men and X2 and he is certainly experienced enough to do the job, coupled with a plentiful stash of MGS knowledge surely he’d be the perfect man for the job?
