MGS movie closes in on production?
Nearly a year ago it was confirmed that Sony Pictures Entertainment was interested in the idea of creating a motion picture based off of the Metal Gear Solid series. Since then, the proposition has gone cold and pretty much fell behind that desk in the corner office. Now it appears to be surfacing back up as news breaks on whom the potential director for the movie might be.
This comes from ComingSoon.net which reports that during an interview at the Sony Pictures premier of 21, they uncover the notion that Sony is seeking out Kurt Wimmer, the director of Equilibrium to possibly write and direct the MGS film. With Metal Gear Solid 4 coming out this June, the MGS movie is surely expected to flesh out.
For years now many have dished out their opinions about the possibility of a MGS movie and how it could translate over to the big screen.
Sony Pictures Vice Chairman, Yair Laundau, expresses his belief by saying:
"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?"
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is expected to release worldwide this year June 12. We will keep you updated on the latest surrounding the game or the film.
