Sony in Talks with Potential Director for Metal Gear Solid Film

Sony Pictures Entertainment has been eyeing a young, up-and-coming director for its depiction of the Solid Snake vs. Liquid Snake story.

According to Deadline, Sony has been talking with director Jordan Vogt-Roberts to helm its silver screen depiction of the Kojima classic, Metal Gear Solid. Vogt-Roberts is best-known for his indie coming-of-age film ‘The Kings of Summer,’ which won multiple awards and received critical acclaim throughout 2013. He has also worked on various episodes of Comedy Central’s ‘Mash Up,’ MTV’s ‘Death Valley,’ along with a few Funny or Die skits. The Metal Gear movie is going to be produced by Avi Arad, who was an executive producer for multiple Marvel-based movies along with the upcoming ‘Mass Effect’ film.

It is believed that the project has been taking so long because Sony Pictures Entertainment and Konami could not both agree on how to tell the story of Solid Snake. Considering Kojima’s obvious influences taken from John Carpenter’s 1981 classic, ‘Escape from New York,’ there would have to be some changes made from the Shadow Moses story as we know it. To play Solid Snake, we’ve got our fingers crossed for either Karl Urban or Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
