Tsu­taya are show­ing off a list of Hideo Kojima’s 15 favorite movies that have inspired the game fran­chise. Note the inter­est­ing omis­sion of “Escape from New York”.

The Guns of Navarone
The Great Escape
2001: A Space Odyssey
Planet of the Apes (orig­i­nal)
The Deer Hunter
Dawn of the Dead
Full Metal Jacket
Die Hard
Black Hawk Down
Chil­dren of Men
Bourne Series
Casino Royale (with Daniel Craig)

Can we expect a movie adap­ta­tion in the same vein as these choices?

you left out rambo also, colonel camp­bell is the spit­ting image of colonel traut­man. i am not entirely sure this film should be made by a hol­ly­wood direc­tor, but by a true fan, but if that wont do, con­sult john woo!
