Through a comedic blurb on a catalog for Studio Kojima’s upcoming games lineup, Hideo Kojima announced a surprise: a live-action Metal Gear Solid movie is in the works!
Thankfully, Uwe Boll, revered by many as the “worst director”, is not attached to the project, but that a “Class-A” contract has been secured. Here’s quote from Kojima himself:
I have received many offers to adapt Metal Gear Solid. It has taken a long time, but we have finally settled on an arrangement,” said the revered designer. “False facts aside, a movie project is underway. I have finalized a Class-A contract with a party in Hollywood.
The party’s name wasn’t mention, or the release date or potential directors. Further details are expected to surface soon.
